Teaching and Learning
On the educational side, new general courses will be offered in various areas of space science and more specialized courses in the Department of Physics and Department of Earth Sciences. This includes a common core course called “Leaving Earth” that has recently been accepted (course co-ordinator Dr. Joe Michalski). In the longer term, when there are sufficient personnel, we plan to offer Space Science as a major in our FoS program and tie-in experiential learning opportunities to space centres in mainland China, Europe, and the USA. Various formal links and MoUs have already been established with key partners with more strategically targeted links still to come.
LSR members will be teaching in the HKU Summer Institute course “Asia Immersion HKU-HIT Summer Course: Space & the Universe” which will take place in July 2019.
