Case Study Teaching in Hong Kong STEM Education: Development of Pilot Cases and Evaluation of Learning Effectiveness

Project: Research project

Project Details


Educational research reveals that case studies can be a pedagogically powerful method for teaching scientific concepts and contents as well as scientific investigation skills and critical thinking. However, there has been rather little use of case study teaching in local science education. In response to the Chief Executive 2015 Policy Address in enriching the curricular and learning activities of Science, Technology and Mathematics, and thereby allowing primary and secondary students to fully realise their potential in innovation under the “Belt and Road” Initiative, this project aims to investigate the feasibility of this new teaching method in STEM education through (a) the development of 2-3 pilot cases (with explicit linkage to some e-learning materials in senior secondary science or mathematics subjects) on some large-scale or famous STEM-related projects and (b) evaluation of the learning effectiveness on the classroom implementation in few teacher education courses at EdUHK.
