MOK, K. H. J. (Speaker)

Activity: Invited Talk or Oral PresentationLecture / Seminar / Talk

Description

Institutions offering a Liberal Arts education should consider the fine balance between preparing students for the labour market and enabling their whole-person development, said Joshua Mok Ka-ho, Vice President, Lingnan University, at a featured speech at the CHER/ACLA conference. While a major focus of educational institutions in Asia is to secure a high position in the university ranking systems to enable them to compete with universities in the West, this aim should not eclipse other aspects of education, such as the personal development of students, he said.
