What is it about?

At University, the interaction between professors and students is key to student learning. Students meet their professors in lectures and on the campus, but for many reasons they dreaded talking with professors even if they have questions or study problems. This would inevitably affect the learning process and students’ academic performance in the long run.

With due recognition of its importance, this interactive workshop focuses on successful communication with your professors during your study. Through role-plays and sharing by professors, you will understand more about the teachers’ perspectives, and find answers to questions that you might have when approaching your teachers. Moreover, you will learn the skills that you need to build relationship and communicate effectively with your professors on different occasions. Topics to be covered include:

  • Barriers to communication
  • Hear what the professors say: the Dos and Don’ts
  • How to communicate with professors in person and by email

Who will speak?

  • Dr. Jetty Chung-Yung Lee, Food & Nutritional Science, School of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science
  • Dr. Otto Heim, School of English, Faculty of Arts
  • Ms. Katherine Wan, Head, Academic Advising Office
