About InnoPower @JC: Fellowship for Teachers
Continuously Promote the Developments of Education
WIn 2016, 500 teachers took part in a survey on Hong Kong’s Education System. The survey was commissioned by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, and was created to learn whether teachers were in need of educational innovation in their schools. Around 90% of respondents agreed that it was a necessity while the other 10% did not. The latter expressed that the challenges of heavy workload and lack of support for new projects may hinder any progress in promoting any development in education and would thus, waste their time and effort.
Based on these results, a team set up the InnoPower@JC: Fellowship for Teachers with the Hong Kong Jockey Club in order to respond to the teachers’ needs and establish a support network for teachers to overcome challenges that prevent their innovative talents to be used in the ever-changing education sector of Hong Kong.
Improve Innovation Capacity with Professional Training.
Teacher Fellows participate in a 10 week training program. During this program, the participants visit the Netherlands – a country well-known for being innovative – for two weeks, as well as another country chosen by themselves. This allows them to meet, inspect, and learn from other teachers. In addition, the participants can also experience the process of self-actualization and introspection, and learn more about innovative thinking.
Practicing What We Preach
After the 10-week program, our Teacher Fellows continue their journey in Hong Kong by collaborating with cross-sector practitioners to share ideas, to develop programs, and to makes improvements to the approaches to education. Putting their ideas into practice will help to cultivate the future of education for generation to come.
Build a Closer Community by Working Together
Teacher Fellows team thrives on networking and relationship-building with individuals who share common goals to promote and discuss the improvements that are required for innovation to nurture in Hong Kong’s education system.
