Agora O2O Innovative Structure Enhances Student Journey

“I am a retired Veterinary Surgeon and Chartered Biologist. I studied in India, the UK and the USA, and I have worked in North America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the UK.I am passionate about PEACE and have always been a campaigner for PEACE and better understanding at every level – PEACE between communities within our diverse nations and PEACE between nations. We must go on working until the power of love is greater than the love of power. All these efforts have been linked with on-going work with communities in the UK, as the issues are global. What happens in conflict areas affects the UK and vice-versa. So we have been working with government Departments and educators to produce appropriate materials to bring people together for open-ended discussion.
I am glad to bring you a message of greetings and good wishes on this important occasion. ELITE Innovation College Cambridge intends to offer holistic education through reframing Oxbridge model via Agora O2O Innovative Structure. It enhances student journey along with its 4 ELITE Colleges, including Innovation College, Technology College, Entrepreneurship College, and Leadership College, which are remarkable educational resource for innovation and developing global talents and entrepreneurs. I congratulate your President, Professor Richard Li-Hua, and his colleagues, and I wish you all success in your studies and work together.
Our late Queen Elizabeth II was a wonderful example of peacemaking through her humble service and wise leadership, visiting over 100 countries in her lifetime, developing relationships of friendship and trust with world leaders, and always demonstrating faith and hope. Make it your aim to be an agent of PEACE like her.”
The Efficient, Accessible and Enrich Experiences Lies at the Heart of EICC O2O Model Developed by Professor Richard Li-Hua and His Team.
Professor Phillip Laird, Chief Innovation Officer and Vice President of Innovation & Global and Academic Partnerships at Trinity Western University, Canada, expressed that:
“On behalf of president, faculty, staff and students of Trinity Western University, I am honored to provide comments today, regarding the opening of collaboration between TWU and EICC. My name is Philip Laird, and I serve both Chief Innovation Officer and Vice President of Innovation, Global and Academic Partnerships at Trinity Western University on the west coast of Canada. I am delighted to work with Professor Richard Li-Hua and the team at EICC, as we are working together to develop and expand the O2O Model that Professor Richard Li-Hua has been advancing over the last 6 years.
This Model is expressed upon access and delivery education worldwide through strategic use of online digital systems, recognizing that unique and invaluable experiences that are reached across the globe by face-to-face learning, here is the term of online and offline or O2O. TWU has develop its own version of O2O Model, called the GXP or Global Express Pathway program for students, with which they can receive 2 or more years of their undergraduate degree in the online format from their location all-around of the world via working toward attending TWU face-to-face in Canada to complete their study in person.
The expanded O2O Model in collaboration with EICC, presents an Agora or a deep learning community, where students, faculty and support staff can engage and exchange resource and knowledge in an open place of ideal sharing and rich learning. In the current era, the question we have to ask ourselves that can we become a full human through only online interruption with material? The O2O Model that is advanced by EICC presents a Model that has taken the best of both online and offline learning, creating efficient online learning for knowledge acquisitions, and combing them with efficient and highly intensive offline engagement that provide the students ability to develop the Identity, competence, experience and wisdom to go with their knowledge. This efficient, accessible and enrich experiences lies at the heart of EICC O2O Model developed by Professor Richard Li-Hua and his team and is consistent the learning journey we have adopted at TWU.”
