TDG 2015-2016 project: Educating BEd students in understanding, appreciating and assessing cultural heritage in Hong Kong

Research output: Other contributionTDG

Abstract

This project enhances the development of our University's students in improving their strategy of teaching and learning. It is applicable in learning to teach the school subjects of integrated and common curriculum, such as General Studies, Life and Society and Liberal Studies. The research is conducted by student teachers to apply the method of narrative inquiry, and to match field based study and experiential learning, which are the prominent strategies adopted for the teaching of multi-disciplinary subjects.
This project adopts the pedagogical combinations of field based study, experiential learning and narrative inquiry. The approaches used in fieldwork conduct field research and interview people or observe the communities and environments to learn cultural heritage and social organizations. Experiential learning enhances learning through reflection on their community involvement. The narrative inquiry can strengthen students' knowledge construction. Students can apply for related strategies, concepts and methods into their future educational careers in planning and implementing related work tasks. Hopefully, this comprehensive strategy is adopted, and the effectiveness of teaching is benefited and strengthened. The experience of such implementation will allow for more effective operation in the future. Students' achievement is assessed by their applications of teaching strategies on their microteaching presentation.
