Overview

The annual CITE Research Symposium for 2010 (CITERS 2010) is held on 4-6 March at the Rayson Huang Theatre, the University of Hong Kong. This year’s CITERS focuses on ways to optimise designs and applications of new technologies that enhance learning in educational and professional development settings. The goal of the symposium is to provide a platform for discussion, networking and collaboration on recent research, good educational practices and new technologies, with a view to furthering research and practice that support e-Learning design and designs for learning. Symposium activities are organized over a period of three days. On each day, there will be a keynote address as well as parallel sessions. Specialist workshops are also scheduled throughout the Symposium.  
The main theme of the Symposium is “e-Learning Design and Designs for Learning”. There are four sub-themes, addressed through keynote speakers from Spain, UK and USA as well as through various forums, workshops, symposia, papers and demonstrations. The Symposium will feature forums to discuss issues related to e-Learning policy and implementation strategies, interactive workshops by students, teachers and researchers on local and international technology innovation and implementation projects. Different classroom uses of Web 2.0 applications, uses of wikis and blogs, eportfolios, mobile technology, etc. to support learning and teaching will be featured. The conference supports the government’s e-Learning initiative as recommended by the Working Group on Textbooks and e-Learning Resources Development.
The symposium is providing bilingual simultaneous interpretation for the keynotes and plenary sessions on the 3 days of the conference.
