“HKBK community meets challenges presented by Pandemic”
Faculties at all levels pride themselves on being ready for just about anything, with professors and instructors at HKBKCE quickly discovered that their college was prepared to meet the challenges caused by the ripple effects of the corona virus pandemic. Words such as confidence and collaboration, as well as support and stability, best describe what faculty, staff and students encountered when HKBKCE quickly shifted to remote learning in mid-March.,
One of the factors that allowed us to pivot successfully was the strength of our faculty. Our college responded with a spirit of collaboration and generosity with Management support with our Principal stepping up to coordinate resources, to discuss concerns and to support one another, and all of these conversations revolved around our students' needs and experiences..College reacted quickly to face the daunting challenge. The ingenuity and determination our students used to make the situation work as effectively as possible was amazing!!!
It didn’t take long for the student and teachers to see the importance of continuing to work with their mentors and meet the challenges of remote learning. Faculties did amazing work with their students and instead of being discouraged saw this as an opportunity to challenge themselves to be creative and try things they might not have normally considered. They were now focused on what they could do to make the transition to remote learning as smooth as possible for their students.”
Time for conversations about students’ lives outside of the classroom was also enabled.“The goal was that our virtual classroom resembled our physical classroom; it was a place to learn, collaborate, engage and laugh,” During these challenging times, HKBKCE commitment to excellence through acts of collaboration, thoughtfulness and kindness is truly appreciable.
“A promise I feel I can make on behalf of all my colleagues is that if a student comes to us ready to learn, we will be ready and eager to teach no matter what the situation is said Prof Khallikkunaisa from CSE Dept..
“We made our students feel confident knowing that our faculty and staff are ready to help them overcome any challenges. No students should feel they have to go it alone — from Department Head to program faculty, to the Office of the Principal our students are our first priority.
Collaborative vision through frequent communication and updates from our Principal enabled us to communicate clear, reliable information to our education students and confidently go through the rest of the semester. I’m very proud to report that the students I work with were able to complete all their requirements and proceed as planned for next year.
