Project

Building Networks and Engagement for Social Impact
This project aims to establish, enhance and formalise EPL’s networks and partnerships, which are necessary to create social impact of research. Concurrently, it initiates two potential impact cases which build on and develop synergies across existing research, teaching, PD and KT projects. Hence, each individual item is part of an overarching strategic project to establish the departmental infrastructure and collaborative networks that are essential to long-term and sustained impact through KT.

Each of the below items links directly to EPL’s Action Plan and EPL Review Panel recommendations for creating impact. The focus is on shaping conditions that are conducive to having impact, and in seeding potential impact case studies in anticipation of the next RAE.

Impact strategy: 1. Establish the local and regional networks to develop partnerships that are needed for impact in schools and educational organizations, and policy planning, enactment and improvement. 2. Establish Research Impact Clusters in order to develop synergies across current research and teaching projects; and disseminate research-derived resources for application in these above networks, e.g. PD tenders, workshops, forums, briefs. 3. Develop and track actual impact.

Summary of KT activities and products:
1. Informing policy change through policy briefs and video briefs released generally, but also strategically targeted to relevant stakeholders;
2. Informing practice through partnership network e-newsletters, annual school forums, and instructional materials that embed EPL research in professional development and tendered leader development projects;
3. Changing practice through partnership projects;
4. Seeding potential impact cases.

Enhancing learning engagement and outcomes through formative e-assessment tasks in the General Education foundation course
This project aims to enhance freshmen’s learning engagement and outcomes in the General Education (GE) foundation course by incorporating formative e-assessment (FEA) tasks into the tutorial process. A teacher guide on FEA task design and implementation, FEA tasks, cases of using FEA tasks, and a relevant website will be developed and refined during the project. The GE foundation course is an important course aimed at cultivating undergraduates’ generic skills for their future life and work. The effectiveness of the course depends on the level of student engagement and learning outcomes. FEA can enhance undergraduates’ learning engagement and outcomes due to the nature of formative assessment and the relative affordance of technology. This project will adapt Salmon's five stage model to design and implement FEA tasks in tutorials. A quasi-experimental design will be utilized to collect data from at least 10 tutorial groups of the GE foundation course using the methods of survey, interviews and document analysis. The data will be used to evaluate the effects of FEA on learning and provide insights to formulate an FEA framework as a reference for assessment innovation in GE at the tertiary level.

Cultivating Students’ Critical Thinking and Creativity through Web-based and Classroom-based Inquiry
Critical thinking and creativity are long-standing objectives in EdUHK strategic plans and within her generic intended learning outcomes (GILOs). Given considerable uncertainty existing in the process of conducting inquiry, students are required to make their own decisions in every stage of doing it, which intrinsically involves the application and development of both creative and critical thinking that are described as the “heartbeat” of inquiry. Inquiry learning was originally adopted in the school classrooms, and recent years witness increasing advocation of it at the university level. This project intends to make use of both Web-based and classroom-based inquiry to facilitate EdUHK students’ development in high-order thinking. 9 sets of Web-based or classroom-based inquiry activities will be developed, with each for an experimental course. The project will follow the paradigm of practitioner research, including two cycles of implementation. The development of students’ critical thinking and creativity will be assessed through matured instruments in the pre and post-tests, interviews with students, and process data generated in the learning process. This project will be a pioneering effort to systematically implement inquiry learning at the university level in the Eastern world. Its innovation is also reflected in the inclusion of both Web-based and classroom-based inquiry.

Developing Peer- and Self-assessment Strategies for the Enhancement of Student Learning Outcomes
This project will seek to enhance student learning outcomes by developing peer-and self-assessment (PASA) strategies and training resources. PASA are student-led assessment practices in which students provide peer- and self-feedback to enhance learning (Harris, Brown, & Harnett, 2015). Hattie and Timperley’s (2007) Model of Feedback Levels will inform the development of PASA strategies and training resources. The PASA strategies will involve the use of feedback prompts for training students in giving peer- and self-feedback, and the engagement of students in recurring cycles of PASA practices, which will be facilitated by the use of learning technologies. Outcomes from the project will encompass pedagogical and scholarship of learning and teaching outcomes.

Case-based Blended Learning Pedagogies for Pre-service Teachers: Building a Community of Practice in Higher Education Settings
This project aims to (a) explore and examine innovative blended learning (BL) pedagogies that effectively integrate case-based learning (CBL) to enhance student engagement and learning of pre-service teachers, and (b) build professional capacity of BL in higher education settings. This project is grounded in a continuous endeavor to address wide-ranging needs and issues related to teaching and learning of the Education Studies (ES) Core Courses of pre-service programmes. Initial effort has been made to develop contextualized case materials to facilitate course delivery. The next stage of inquiry is to investigate the use of these materials along with pedagogically sound BL strategies. Research on BL focuses mostly on student learning, having limited understanding of pedagogical practices for professional development. The proposed project contributes to this aspect of scholarship by bringing together faculty members to try out case-based BL pedagogies. The collegial process of investigation enables the cultivation of a community of practice that is more open to the pedagogical possibilities brought forth by BL to strengthen the professional component of pre-service teacher education. The project will produce a training package with an online library of exemplars and resources that guides faculty members to formulate their own desired path of BL.

Designing systematic blended learning strategies with locally relevant resources to support teaching and learning of a core Education Studies course
The overall purpose of the proposed project is to make use of systematic blended learning strategies to facilitate the contextualization of teaching and learning in multi-lingual classrooms. This, in turn, would help promote student engagement and address issues related to diverse needs in teaching and learning, the EMI mode of delivery and field experience. Since TTC benefits several hundred students annually, systematic blended learning strategies can ensure a more consistent delivery of guidance and support to students across course groups.

International Study of School Autonomy, Leadership and Learning: Hong Kong Education Reforms
This research is the Hong Kong part of an international and comparative study of school autonomy, leadership and learning involving 7 education systems functioning in Australia, Canada (Alberta), England, Finland, Hong Kong, Israel and Singapore. The international teams launched the research project in May 2014 in Jerusalem. In response to challenges from globalization in the last two decades, numerous education reforms have been initiated worldwide. The changes towards school autonomy are often assumed as an important approach to improving school practices to meet changing expectations of stakeholders and high demands for new education in the 21st century. Unfortunately, this assumption still lacks strong international evidence with comprehensive empirical findings to support its validity across different cultural backgrounds. In particular, (a) both within-country and cross-country quantitative research at a broader level showed that the direct gain in school performance produced by increasing autonomy is relatively small and (b) the results of a large number of studies on the impact of varying levels of school autonomy within countries differed quite widely and it was difficult to generalize from them (Grattan Institute Report, 2013). Further evidence showed that contingent with the nature and level of school autonomy, accountability structures, and development stages of school, the impact of autonomy on school performance was found to be inconsistent (PISA in Focus, 2011). In particular, how the role of principals and teachers in association with the use of increased school autonomy to enhance learning needs in-depth study locally and internationally. The research gaps hinder further development of school autonomy, leadership and other learning initiatives in Hong Kong and beyond. Through case studies, interviews, sample surveys, and international comparisons, this project aims to fill the research gaps with the following objectives in Hong Kong in particular and the other 6 education systems in general:
(1) To develop a theoretical base for understanding how school autonomy – in terms of both structures and cultures - influences leadership practices in relation to curriculum and learning in the 21st Century; and
(2) To investigate empirically (a) what aspects of structural autonomy are the most influential on leadership practices in relation to professional learning and student learning; (b) how school leaders consistently utilize their autonomy to enhance student outcomes and develop staff capacity; (c) how the school system builds cultures of autonomy; and (d) how accountability structures support or constrain development of cultures of autonomy.

Exercising teacher instructional leadership through a formal position: A synergy of formal and personal power of mid-level teacher leaders in Hong Kong primary schools
Despite the growing importance of mid-level teacher leaders i.e. teachers with formal positions, in school improvement in recent years, the understanding of their instructional leadership roles and how they exercise leadership are unclear. The deficiency in the understanding and knowledge of roles, practices and capacities of instructional leadership of mid-level teacher leaders could hinder the process and outcome of leadership building and thus lessen their influences on school improvement. The project will interview 12 teachers, including 4 mid-level teacher leaders and 8 peer teachers from 4 primary schools. Together with two in-depth case studies, the project investigates in the teachers’ perceptions and practices of mid-level teacher leaders, and seeks to develop a model to illustrate factors affecting the exercise of instructional leadership of mid-level teacher leadership. The outcomes of the project will be useful to inform the professional development need of mid-level teacher leaders and help construct strategies to enhance their instructional leadership.

Developing and Refining an East Asian Conceptualization of Principal Instructional Leadership
Over the past decade, policymakers in East Asia have implemented new policies and programs aimed at increasing the capacity for leadership in schools (Cheng & Walker, 2008; Hallinger, 2011; Walker & Kwan, 2008). The rationale for overhauling school management systems (e.g., school based management, quality systems, accountability structures) and developing new approaches to the recruitment, selection, training, and evaluation of school leaders is based upon an increasingly substantial empirical knowledge base concerning the contributions that instructional leadership makes to school performance (Hallinger & Heck, 1996; Leithwood et al., 2006; Robinson et al., 2008).

At the same time, scholars have noted that this knowledge base consists largely of theory and empirical research from Western cultural contexts (Cheng, 1995; Hallinger, 1995, Walker & Dimmock, 2002). This limitation of the knowledge base on school leadership in East Asia represents the focus of this project. The proposed project seeks to contribute to the development of the knowledge base on principal instructional leadership in four East Asian societies: China, Hong Kong and Vietnam.
