Educational Research Award Scheme

Educational Research Award Scheme

Since its inception in June 2013, the Committee on Professional Development of Teachers and Principals (COTAP) has been working towards building shared vision, mission and objectives for enhancing the professional development of teachers and school leaders in Hong Kong.  To achieve these goals, COTAP has launched T-excel@hk, an overarching project which comprises eight areas of focus.

The Educational Research Award Scheme (the Scheme) is an initiative under T-share, which is one of the focus areas under T-excel@hk.  It aims to encourage teachers to try out, improve and share new or effective pedagogical practices through educational research; further enhance teachers' professionalism and support their continuous professional development; and promote a research culture within the education sector.

The Scheme (2023/24) is open for applications from 3 to 31 October 2023.

A briefing session (conducted in Cantonese) was held on 24 June 2023 to provide interested teachers with details pertaining to the Scheme (2023/24).
