Prof. Irwin Kuo-Chin KING Has Received the Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award 2016

Professor Irwin King is Professor of the Department of Computer Science & Engineering and Associate Dean (Education) of Faculty of Engineering. He has been with CUHK since 1993, teaching and researching in the field of computational intelligence. Although Professor King is trained in engineering, he believes good teaching is both an art and a science. At its best, it snugly lies in the intersection of regimen and amusement, discipline and permissiveness, organisation and freedom. It promotes the exploration into intricate patterns as well as the understanding of profound principles. It not only leads to contemplation in stillness, but also achievements through process and action. Professor King is passionate about igniting the imagination, inspiring critical thinking, and instilling a passion for learning. Recently, Professor King has been an evangelist in the use of education technologies in eLearning for the betterment of teaching and learning.
