Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.

Aspiration in pursuing learning qualities of students

“Building trust and mutual respect is crucial in a relationship, even between teachers and students. Teaching and learning is a two-way process which can be strengthened with such relation. Engaging students in this process is a key to success in education.”

Dr Wat received his BSc(ActuarSc) and PhD in Actuarial Science from The University of Hong Kong. He is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, a Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst and a certified Financial Risk Manager. He teaches courses mainly targeting Risk Management and Statistics students from the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, aspiring to demonstrate to students the rigor and usefulness of quantitative analysis from theory to practice.

In an attempt to enhance academic progress and performance of students by providing valuable feedback, Dr. Wat tries to reach out to each student individually where possible, or students in small group meetings. Interaction and views exchange would be more feasible on these occasions and students generally feel more comfortable in raising their concerns in such an environment. In this way, effective response and helpful feedback can be given to individuals in order to address their specific needs.
