Keynote Speech (III)
Date:    May 3, 2019 (Friday)
Time:    4:30pm-5:30pm
Topic:    Evidence Based Practice and Research Across Time and Disciplines
Speaker:    Prof. Ian Shaw
Summary:    Prof. Shaw will elaborate how beliefs regarding the nature of ‘evidence’ remain important areas for discussion in both disciplines and professions. Foundationalist’ positions, regarding the role of observation as discloser of the true nature of reality, persist despite their generally agreed weaknesses. There is briefly discussion on the different ways faith in science of social work has manifested itself over history, including how the methodological implications have been taken up, doing so by looking at how arguments for ‘experimental sociology’ arose – and died – during the last century. Evidence-based practice as a series of knowledge claims in ways allowing a constructive assessment of its potential will also be outlined. 
Prof. Shaw will illustrate several ways that strong forms of evidence-based practice have been modified in American social work and by some working in Hong Kong. Can we ever prevent professionals from doing more harm than good? Can we determine with great certainty via research alone whether they are doing harm or good? Does evaluating policies and practices by means of research always lead to more good than harm?

Keynote Speech (I)
Date:    May 3, 2019 (Friday)
Time:    10:00am-11:00am
Topic:    Interprofessional and Interagency Working and Interprofessional Education
Speaker:    Prof. John Carpenter
Summary:    There are adverse effects on service users of uncoordinated mental health and child protection services. Prof. Carpenter will include the discussion of challenges to collaborative practice, including stereotyping, lack of understanding of roles and responsibilities of other professionals and of how to collaborate. Learning together to work together - Interprofessional Education and Training was promoted and the evidence of its effectiveness and outcomes for service users will be elaborated. The evaluation research methods included cohort surveys with questionnaires, observations and interviews, measuring outcomes for users and collecting user feedback. Also its theoretical perspective from social psychology with reference to sociology is highlighted.
Social workers, health care professionals and journalists are welcome to join.

Keynote Speech (IV)
Date:    May 4, 2019 (Saturday)
Time:    09:30am-10:30pm
Topic:    The Gap Between Neuroscience and Education: Is it a Bridge too Far?
Speaker:    Dr. Jason Lodge
Summary:   The use of evidence in education has a long and divisive history. For over 100 years there has been international debate about the best forms of research for improving student learning in classrooms. Two recent trends have reignited discussions about evidence-based education; the rise of cognitive neuroscience and the constant evolution of educational technologies. In this presentation, Dr. Lodge will discuss the research methods used in the learning sciences (including neuroscience) and how research from the laboratory can inform the improvement of education as technology increasingly impacts on the classroom. In this discussion, the limitations of evidence-based policy and practice in education will be pointed out. Teachers and design-based approaches are critical to effective evidence-informed practice. Translational methods of research and implementation science are important foundations for effectively taking the findings from the laboratory and applying them to the classroom.

Time:    2:00pm-3:00pm
Topic:    Research to Practice: 20 Years of Evidence & Experience in Business Management
Speaker:    Dr. Matt Bowler
Summary:    Evidence based management at its heart is applying sound research to the practice of management. In this talk, Dr. Bowler translates two decades of experience and research into practical application for both future research directions and management practice. This talk interprets his research for evidence-based management to improve employee engagement, performance and retention ultimately improving department and firm performance as well as how to conduct workplace experiments to test business practices before scaling to the entire organization. A question and discussion session will follow.
