- Quality of the Student Experience of Teaching and Learning
- Instil in students the desire to learn and strengthen their ability to ‘learn to learn’
- Facilitate the development of “learn-to-learn” abilities and digital literacy among students:
- Strengthen information literacy instruction through the adoption of best pedagogical practices and latest technologies. Develop open access information literacy learning objects including the “InfoLit for U” MOOC to support self-directed learning anytime anywhere. Integrate the information literacy instruction into the University curriculum, especially through the Learning Management System (LMS).
- Facilitate experiential learning with emerging technologies and development of a creative and can-do mindset, via i-Space and its MakerMindset@i-Space programme. Collaborate with i-Space industrial partners to provide free theme-based workshops for students to enhance their digital literacy.
- Promote reading culture through the READ@PolyU Programme, the PolyU READ good reads collection and book exhibitions.
- Showcase and build pride in outstanding student work:
- Collect, digitize and archive Outstanding Work by Students (OWS). Facilitate these students to reflect on their learning experiences, and support them to share their reflection to the PolyU community in videos and other new media.
- Set up a new designated exhibition area on the Podium level of the Library to display outstanding work by students.
- Create a new designated online portal to showcase outstanding work by students to the global community.
- Enhance student learning experience and prepare for the onset of digital transformation in tertiary education
- Build a new Open Educational Resources (OER) portal to facilitate the discovery and incorporation of quality online and public domain teaching and learning materials including MOOCs, into the curriculum.
- Enhance the e-preferred Library collection development policy and provide media-rich learning resources to support blended teaching and learning.
- Provide current digital facilities to support the diverse needs of students from all disciplines to build multimedia and digital applications.
- Transform physical and virtual learning spaces to facilitate new teaching and learning pedagogies
- Transform the physical library with the Library Extension and Revitalisation Capital Works Project to meet the evolving needs of Library users. Construct an additional floor (6/F) on top of the existing library building with a Net Operational Floor Area (NOFA) of around 2,080 m2, and revitalize other levels (G/F to 5/F) with a total affected area (AFA) of about 14,600 m2.
- Withdraw obsolete non-archival materials from the Library collection to permit conversion of stack space into study space, and to ensure the collection stays current and relevant.
- Adopt a new course readings management system ‘Leganto’ which couples tightly with the Library System Alma, the Library’s discovery tool Primo, and prevalent learning management systems (LMS), to streamline the integration of Library resources and services into LMS.
- Provide an online library with e-resources accessible anytime, anywhere.
- Outreach to the University community via social media.
