This paper addresses the use of multi-media in a first-year team-taught module entitled “Introduction to Linguistics and Language Awareness” offered on an initial teacher education program in Hong Kong. It first examines the ‘karmic’ background of the teacher trainees through a brief review of the local school context which may often exert a constraining influence on classroom pedagogy. Having established a need for change, the paper then presents a number of multi-media, language-related activities illustrative of more innovative practice. The session concludes with a consideration of the perceived benefits as revealed through participant evaluation.
