"Students as Learning Experience Designers ("Student-LED")" Network

(1) Background
The Hong Kong Association of the Heads of Secondary Schools (HKAHSS), the Center for Engineering Education Innovation (E2I) of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and the Curriculum Development Institute (CDI) of the Education Bureau (EDB) jointly organised the "Students as Learning Experience Designers ("Student-LED")" project from the 2010/11 to 2012/13 school years. Over 500 students from 55 schools participated in the project and designed their own learning experiences programmes. They also established a learning community to disseminate their experiences and good practices with students and teachers of other schools. Details can be found on this website: (http://www.edb.gov.hk/cd/ole/student_LED/).

As an effort to sustain the professional exchange on this area, the EDB set up a "Student-LED" Network (the Network) in 2013/14 school year, aiming to continue to promote self-directed learning among students as well as to encourage schools to develop quality OLE/SLP through whole-school curriculum planning and effective strategies of pedagogy and assessment.



(2) "STARS" Programme – Let Students Shine like STARS
In keeping up with the ongoing curriculum renewal, the EDB has developed a "STARS" Programme since September 2015 to support teachers with practical strategies in adopting the "Student-LED" approach to plan and organise OLE/SLP activities in schools. The aim is to develop students' self-directed learning capabilities, to further empower students to excel in their learning, and to unleash their potentials so that they could thrive and shine like STARS.



(3) Purpose
  1. To share among schools adopting the "Student-LED" approach good practices of implementing quality OLE/SLP and providing learning experiences for unleashing students' potentials.
  2. To develop a professional learning community in which participants share and exchange their views and experiences through in-depth interaction.
  3. To share and disseminate good practices of the "Student-LED" approach with other schools.



(4) Target Participants
Secondary school teachers (e.g. Vice-principals, OLE/SLP Coordinators, ECA masters/mistresses, Career masters/mistresses, etc.) who show keen interest in adopting the "Student-LED" approach and are willing to disseminate good practices to other schools.



(5) Programme Details
  1. "Student-LED" Learning Community: This community gathers together schools of different backgrounds for sharing a variety of good practices. It serves as a platform for teachers' professional exchange on themes related to implementing "Student-LED" activities, such as whole-school curriculum planning in cultivating a "Student-LED" school culture, strategies, skills and experiences of implementing "Student-LED" activities through cross-disciplinary collaboration, and skills in planning and organising "Student-LED" activities to cater for learner diversity.
  2. Training Workshop for Students: The HKUST is invited to provide training workshops for students to help them understand and acquire the necessary skills in organising "Student-LED" activities, develop leadership qualities, and nurture reflective habits of mind. Participating students will share their stories in the peer learning community. Teachers from network schools could join as facilitators or observers in these workshops.
  3. Annual Learning Symposium: A Learning symposium will be conducted annually in July for students to share their stories in organising "Student-LED" activities. It also fosters professional exchange among schools within and outside the Network on adopting the "Student-LED" approach.
  4. Reflection Strategies Workshop for Teachers: Workshops will be conducted by the HKUST and the EDB to enhance teachers' knowledge and skills in facilitating quality reflection as well as nurturing self-directed capabilities among students for their whole-person development. A 3-Tiers Framework of the "Student-LED" approach will be introduced to facilitate teachers' effective planning and implementing their own programmes in schools. EDB will provide support to individual schools upon request on relevant strategies to implement "Student-LED" programmes.
  5. Series of Professional Sharing Activities: We encourage schools to organize different modes of professional sharing among themselves and we will provide support as needed. For example, if there are three or more schools who would like to organize joint school staff development programmes or school visits, our officers and HKUST's professionals could serve as speakers or facilitators. Organising schools may also consider opening up these programmes or visits for other teachers or students from the Network to participate.
