Webinar: Lexical Learning with Endless Fun

The Alumni Affairs and Development Office held a webinar on "Lexical Learning with Endless Fun" on 31 March 2020. Ms Zandra Mok Yee-tuen, a registered speech therapist and Manager of the University’s Integrated Centre for Wellbeing, was invited to be the speaker.

Webinar: How to Cope with Children's Emotions and Stresses and Cultivate High Emotional Intelligence?

As parents or teachers, how should we support the growth of young children to let them grow up in a positive environment, and learn how to adjust themselves when encountering stress? The Alumni Affairs and Development Office will hold an online seminar on 29 April 2020, so that our alumni will understand “how to cope with children's emotions and stresses and cultivate high emotional intelligence”.

Speaker: Dr Amanda Wong Mun, Assistant Professor, Department of Early Childhood Education, EdUHK
