Harnessing the Power of Assessment to Support Pre-service Teachers' Learning and Professional Development Through an Innovative Blended Learning Approach (A+BLe)
Educators in higher education encounter lots of difficulties in maintaining high academic standards and high quality attributes in today's classes with a large number of students with diverse needs. It remains a challenging task for teachers to, on one side, well organize the teaching/learning content so that all students are more likely to actively participate in the learning process, and on the other side, to well assess students’ use of their higher-order/self-directed learning processes (e.g . . .

Relationship between the Implementation of Junior Secondary Chinese History Curriculum and the Cultivation of Students' Civic Consciousness: Voices from Teachers and Students
While a vital part of basic education involves the cultivation of students' civic consciousness, it is also an important goal as specified in the curriculum documents in various countries. The curriculum outline after Hong Kong's return to China in 1997 also clearly states that education should shoulder the responsibility to foster students' national identity and patriotism. Survey reports, however, have repeatedly revealed a decline in youth's national identification with China in recent years. . . .

Who am I? Narrative Identity of Chinese Late Adolescents in the Context of Social Movements
Two issues relating to young people have come up in the recent social movements in Hong Kong since June 2019: (1) a high percentage of participants in the recent social movements are young people and (2) the differentiation exists between Hong Kong local students and students who are originally from Mainland China. It is timely to explore the causes why such a large amount of young people have proactively engaged in the social movements. The investigation into how late adolescents who have grown . . .

Cross-institutional Capacity Building for Service-Learning in Hong Kong Higher Education Institutions
We propose a cross-institutional project with the objective of supporting and promoting service-learning (SL) in Hong Kong universities, which has been found by research as a high-impact educational practice to nurture holistic student development, especially in the intangible aspects of social responsibility. Although SL has been integrated into many Hong Kong universities to some degree (either in the form of a curricular graduation requirement or a community service hours requirement), there . . .

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 . . .

Unraveling the role of community service in adolescent identity formation
Researchers have argued that community service play a significant role in facilitating adolescent identity formation (Youniss & Yates, 1997; Kroger, 2007), with identity formation being regarded as a major development issue confronting adolescents (Erikson, 1968). Much research has been conducted to report the positive impact of community service in adolescent identity formation (Hardy et al., 2010); what remains unknown, however, is which community service program factors provide concrete oppor . . .

Enhancing Students' Learning Through Co-curricular Design and Service Learning in Hong Kong Higher Education
Since 2011, co-curricular learning as part of the total learning experiences in the new 335 curriculum of the Hong Kong Institute of Education has been implemented for enhancing students’ knowledge and skills. The innovative design of the co-curricular courses consists of the use of service learning as the pedagogical strategy for enhancing students’ active participation and the transfer of knowledge and skills from classroom setting to practical real contexts.

Investigating undergraduate students’ development of intercultural sensitivity in service-learning – A pilot study
The proposed study sets out to investigate the association between service-learning and undergraduate students’ intercultural sensitivity development. Theorists have argued the important relationship between service-learning and intercultural sensitivity development (Butin, 2010; Deardorff & Edwards, 2013), however, empirical research has reported mixed results. Several studies found that service-learning promoted individuals to the ethnorelative stages of intercultural sensitivity (Fitch, 2004, . . .

Enhancing the relationship of teaching and learning: What is the knowledege base of teaching and how can it facititate learning?
The relation of teaching and learning rests on how theories can be linked to practice. Very often, teaching theories emerge and vary in quite a number of ways and they do not readily respond to what students need to know. With this in mind, Shulman and his associates at Stanford University have worked on a practical way of approaching subject matter, school curriculum and pedagogy with an emphasis of “pedagogical content knowledge” (see Grossman, Wilson and Shulman, 1989; Wilson, Shulman and Ric . . .

The Impact of Exposure to Service Learning on Adolescent Identity Development ---- Study on Secondary School Students’ Other Learning Experience in Hong Kong
Service learning, as a form of experience education has been explicitly promoted since 1980s in the US. In the Hong Kong context, over 90% primary and secondary schools in the past ten years have offered service learning experience for their students with a variety of approaches (Fok, 2009). In addition, service learning is increasingly salience since it is designed as a required learning experience of the Other Learning Experience in New Senior Secondary Education in Hong Kong.
