Addressing student learning difficulties by learning study: A personal knowledge management perspective

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers

Abstract

This paper discusses effective training activities used to develop teachers' personal knowledge management (PKM) competencies for supporting students in remedial education. PKM competencies are conceptualized as knowledge retrieving, organizing, analyzing and collaborative skills. The paper explores how Learning Study, a collaborative action research approach, can be integrated with eLearning activities to enhance PKM skills for effective instructional design and assessment for learning so as to manage learning difficulties and diversity of students. The study adopts Cheng’s (2011) PKM model to propose a curriculum framework for developing teacher PKM skills through a teaching development project conducted at The Hong Kong Institute of Education. Results showed that injecting eLearning activities in the Learning Study course can assist teachers in managing student diversity and learning difficulties.
