Teaching development grants final and financial report: Using digital lectures to enhance students' competences in conducting Chinese language education research

Research output: Other contributionTDG

Abstract

This proposed project aims to enhance students’ competences in conducting language education research through the production of a series of digital lectures; and to strengthen staff pedagogical thoughtfulness as a learning community through establishing a technology-enhanced environment in the Department of CHL. The idea of this project is generated from a fruitful TDG project “Development of digital lectures in the Department of Chinese Language Studies” and a CHL’s One-line Supported Research Project “Learning by doing: Exploring the teaching potentials of digital lectures” to explore the potentials of e-learning innovation in the research of Chinese teaching. This project will provide support for (i) producing digital lectures; (ii) sharing pedagogies for digital lectures; (iii) developing a departmental digital lecture database. The production of digital lectures will prompt the lecturer participants to reflect on and review the crucial elements of Chinese language education and relevant studies in the contemporary context. The revisiting of their past teaching experiences will become catalyst for department-wide improvement which can transform our capacity that leads to a better learning experience for students. By engaging students in digital lectures, the project will also facilitate the students’ development of competences in conducting language education research and enrich their learning experiences of e-learning and Self-directed Learning (SDL).
