Cross-synergy: Promoting peer teaching and learning between BEd(English Language) and BA(Language Studies) students in a linguistics course through a Wikibook project

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Since the introduction of none-education programmes in the HKIEd in 2010, cross-synergy between education and none-education programmes has always been considered very important. In this project, we aim to establish peer teaching and learning between BEd(English Language) and BA(Language Studies) students in the course ‘Introduction to Linguistics’. Three experimental tutorial groups were created and a Wikibook project was set up in the course to allow students from the two different programmes to peer-teach each other and peer-comment on each other’s academic work. In order to find out students’ perceptions on peer teaching and learning that occurred in the course, and their views on cross-synergy and cross-fertilization between the BEd(English Language) and BA(Language Studies) programmes, two surveys and follow-up interviews were carried out. It is hoped that this project can demonstrate how cross-synergy between education and non-education programmes can be promoted at course level. Copyright © 2013 HKIED.
