Communication-Intensive Courses

CI-badged courses are courses that consist of a syllabus with components that explicitly develop communication-related knowledge, skills and attributes.  They are subject to the following formal course requirements: they must

  1. clearly specify communication-related course learning outcomes in course documentation,
  2. ensure that communication-related course learning outcomes relate to at least two of the four communication ‘literacies’, and
  3. ensure that at least 40% of the course grade is assigned to assessment tasks relating specifically to communication.

The University’s expectation in relation to the teaching and learning approach adopted on CI-badged courses is that it be active and dialogic, that assessment be both formative and summative, and that feedback be frequent, timely and relevant.

All HKU courses are eligible for C-I course badging. The C-I course badge will be visible on the student’s Academic Attainment Profile (AAP).
