Abstract

[COVID-19 has sparked a rise in creative inventions to help people adjust to the new normal. To reduce the risk of coronavirus spreading from entering the indoor areas through drainage pipes, a team from the Engineering Discipline of the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education has developed the U-trap Refill Automator to assist residents in monitoring the water level in common U-shaped trap drainage pipes while refilling water automatically when the water contained in the U-trap is insufficient. The practice of research-led teaching and research-informed teaching for the benefits of students is substantial in the project. The team practices research-led teaching by sharing the relevant research findings with colleagues and encouraging critique. On the other hand, the research-informed teaching is actualized by the relevant professional development, constructive feedback and guided design. The project is an interplay between research and teaching in that building synergies between research and teaching should be a central element of excellence.]
