Remarks 1. Since March 2009, the professional development programme 'NSS Learning and Teaching Series for the Modules in the Elective Part of the English Language Curriculum: Workshop on Learning English through Popular Culture' has been offered in two modes: face-to-face and web-based. These workshops are basically the same in content, but with the incorporation of multimedia / multimodal resources for the web-based workshops. TO ENABLE MORE PARTICIPANTS TO TAKE PART IN THE PROGRAMME, TEACHERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO ENROL FOR EITHER ONE TYPE OF WORKSHOPS FOR THE SAME MODULE.

2. The web-based workshops will require a commitment of approximately 2.5 hours per week over a course of 2.5 weeks.

3. This face-to-face or web-based professional development programme is a re-run of the programme, 'NSS Learning and Teaching Series for the Modules in the Elective Part of the English Language Curriculum: Workshop on Learning English through Popular Culture', conducted in the 2006/07, 2007/08 and 2008/09 school years. Teachers who have taken the programme in previous years NEED NOT apply for either the face-to-face or web-based workshop.

4. The EDB may withhold the CPD hours of participants who fail to achieve 100% attendance for either the face-to-face or web-based workshop.

5. There will be upcoming workshops from March to May 2010 which will be open for enrolment in due course.

6. Schools can continue using the surplus of Teacher Professional Preparation Grant flexibly to employ supply teachers to provide relief for teachers attending NSS-related professional development programmes until 31 August 2012.

7. While priority will be given to schools that have not been allocated any places in previous years, nominations from schools will, in principle, be processed on a first-come-first-served basis. However, it should be noted that the number of places that schools request may not be fully granted, as consideration needs to be taken with regard to the actual subscription level as well as the need to allow for a wider representation of schools to participate in the programme.

8. Teachers will be notified whether their application is successful via their email accounts as soon as the application is processed, and in any case no later than four working days after the closing date of nomination.

9. Information such as the programme details, workshop outline and materials will be sent to participants by the respective programme provider at least one week before the commencement of the programme.

10. Teachers are requested to read the Suggested Scheme of Work for the module 'Learning English through Popular Culture'
(http://cd.edb.gov.hk/eng) before attending the workshop.

11. No parking spaces are available at the venue.

12. Teachers attending the face-to-face workshops are reminded to be punctual for both sessions of the workshop so that they can be smoothly delivered and participants can benefit more fully. CPD hours may be withheld should teachers fail to achieve 100% attendance due to lateness and/or early leave.

13. Principals who have made nomination(s) for the programme will be notified of the attendance status of the teacher(s) concerned.

14. Special Arrangements for Bad Weather (for face-to-face workshops):
(a) Workshop in the morning session will be cancelled when Typhoon Signal No. 8 or above is hoisted or Black Rainstorm Warning Signal is issued at or after 6:30am.
(b) Workshop in the afternoon session will be resumed when Black Rainstorm Warning Signal or Typhoon Signal No. 8 or above is cancelled at or before 11:30am. Otherwise, the workshop will continue to be cancelled.
