Teaching development grants final and financial report: Developing reflective teaching and learning strategies in general education courses

Research output: Other contributionTDG

Abstract

The present study aims to investigate and develop reflective teaching and learning strategies in promoting General Education in the university context. It will help establish a data base of useful literature on effective teaching and learning strategies in general, but for the teaching of GE courses in specific. In the first stage of development, team members participating in this project will be responsible for designing and developing teaching materials for undergraduate students in several selected GE courses. In the second stage, students will be invited to participate in pre-post interviews. Class observations will also be conducted. The pre-course interview will focus on students’ perceptions of reflection about teaching and learning strategies, and the post-interview will be about students’ self report of their learning outcomes, influential factors, and satisfaction with the reflective strategies used. On completion of the study, there will be useful exemplars developed and to be shared in the teaching of GE courses. Implications for future GE course development will be made for teaching similar courses in the sector of higher education. The results of the study will also contribute to exploring on how a reflective culture of teaching and learning can be adopted in tertiary institutes in Hong Kong.
