Metrology Symposium 2020 (SI Unit – Fundamentally Better)

The Government Laboratory (GL), Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification (HKCTC), Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) and Standards and Calibration Laboratory of Innovation and Technology Commission (SCL) jointly organized the Metrology Symposium 2020 on 10th Jan 2020.  The theme is “The International System of Units – Fundamentally Better”.  Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) was one of supporting organizations. On May 20, 2019, the World Metrology Day (WMD) 2019, the International System of Units (SI) was revised so that all the seven base units, namely, the second, the metre, the kilogram, the ampere, the kelvin, the mole and the candela, were defined based on seven defining constants related to the fundamental laws of nature. Before the seminar, I met many friends in testing and certification industry and we took a photo for memory. Ir. Brenda Lam and I took a photo first.


I also took a photo with Dr. Dr. Eric Sze and Mr. Raymond Leung.


I met Mr. CM Tsui again and took a photo for memory.


Dr. Steven Yang, Ms. Brenda Lam and I were all gradated in CityU (EE, AP & BCH/AP/SEEM).


I am honor to meet Dr. Alex CK Tse (Programme Director, Directorate Office, OUHK).


Gilson HK Lab team (Nic, Sally & Ben) also joined this metrology symposium.


In the beginning, Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong (President, OUHK) gave welcoming address. He said he serviced as Chairman of Consumer Council for many years in which metrology is important in measurement.  It is not only focused on Quality but Quantity is also critical.  Finally, he expected metrology as foundation of science in Testing and Certification which could be a new economic development engine.


Then all speakers and guests took a group photo.


The first and keynote speaker was Mr. CM Tsui (Head of Laboratory, Standards and Calibration Laboratory) and his topic entitled “A 35-year History of Setting up Primary Standards of Physical Measurements for Hong Kong”.  Firstly, Mr. Tsui reviewed the history of metrological infrastructure development since Mr. Gordon Bell (Director Royal Observatory) suggested to maintain and certify standards of measurement in 1977.  In that time, the Governor of Hong Kong appointed the Advisory Committee on Diversification (ACD) to study the ways to facilitate diversification of industry and the report issued in 1979.


Then Mr. Tsui told us that HKG Standards and Calibration Laboratory (SCL) was established in 1984. He introduced their time and frequency standard and the first HP5061A caesium beam frequency standard was acquired in 1983.  At that time LORAN-C timing receiver was used to synchronize the HP5061A to UTC(USNO) by receiving the LORAN-C signal from Gesashi, Okinawa, Japan.  He also briefed the history of traceability for time synchronization such as 1989 using GPS Receivers, 2007 using Multi-Channel GPS Receivers and 2017 using Multi-Frequency GPS Receivers.

CityU Development Seminar on “Making Your Own Short Video”

The CityU EDGE’s Staff Development Seminar named “Lights! Camera! Action! The Basics of Making Your Own Short Video Lectures” was organized by Office of Education Development and Gateway Education (EDGE), CityU on 6th Jan 2020.  This 90-minute, EDGE lunchtime staff development seminar offered two parts.  The first part would provide an overview of making own lectures into short videos and the second part was an orientation to the new EDGE Video Production Studio. 


The first speaker was Dr. Paul C. Corrigan and he briefed the seminar’s Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) which was based on Outcomes-based Teaching & Learning (OBTL) that could be better understood as being student-centered and focused on producing deep learning.  He also mentioned how to plan video lecutres using OBTL principles and integrated with Canvas.


Then Dr. Corrigan briefed some advantages (e.g. Flexible delivery, can study when and where, enhancement of quality, etc.) and disadvantages (e.g. student prefer face-to-face, lack of immediate feedback, others.) of lecture videos. He showed us how to plan lecture video based on OBTL for using PowerPoint and scripting.


After that he briefed the OBTL Teaching and Learning Activities (TLA) and some important points for discussion such as 10-minute videos followed by different TLA.


Online quizzes on Canvas were useful but it was only for multiple choice questions.
