The University of Macau (UM), an English-medium Asian University, has undergone major institutional changes in the past decade. UM has quickly evolved from a primarily teaching university to an international research university, instituted and revamped a GE programme, established the Centre for Teaching and Learning Enhancement (CTLE) that promotes faculty development, learner-centred education and blended learning, and established Asia’s largest residential college system and a prestigious university-wide teaching excellence award that foregrounds teaching alongside research and multi-lingual education. The panel speakers – academic and administrative voices involved in these changes – will discuss how these changes impact their identities as faculty members.
