Projects

Developing a Web-based Field Experience (FE) Guidebook for BEd(SN) Program
Preservice and inservice teachers in our BEd(SN) program require comprehensive training that integrates theory with practical experiences to effectively prepare them to cater for learning diversity in the classroom. Our proposed web-based and videoed Field Experience (FE) guidebook aims to provide our student teachers with immersive and reflective learning opportunities. Through the video-based guidebook, both the BEd(SN) students and FE supervisors will engage their self-learning in the demonstration videos, reference materials and exemplified students work bridging the gap between theory and practice.

In this proposed project, we aim at creating a step-by-step on-line guidebook which could enable our BEd(SN) students’ and FE supervisors to have a comprehensive understanding of FE considering logistics, practicability and employability. The step-by-step on-line guidebook comprises topics such as the introduction of the general FE guiding principles, the three modes of FE, submission and Sway-link establishment for E-portfolio, lesson planning for FE, differentiation strategies, evaluation of FE, the components of the e-portfolio and the marking criteria of the e-portfolio. The twelve chapters of the on-line guidebook include video-clip demonstrations, planning, assessments, teaching activities, materials, lesson plans exemplifications and video clips involved for FE practices. Annually about 300 supervised BEd(SN) students and their respective 60 FT/PT FE supervisors from SEC Department will be the beneficiaries. This on-line FE guidebook highlights the specific features in FE and the requirements for their teaching standards in order to support the desired outcomes of our graduate teaching quality and employability.

Provision of Services for Seminars on "Establishing School-based Mechanisms to Manage the Quality and Effectiveness of Tier-2 Support Measures for Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs)
More than 800 SENCOs from all primary and secondary schools participated in the captioned seminars targeted on establishing school-based mechanisms to manage the quality and effectiveness of Tier-2 Support Measures for SENCOs. The objective of the six seminars was to enhance SENCOs’ professional capacity in leading the Student Support Team (SST) in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of Tier-2 support measures under the 3-Tier Intervention Model. Another objective was to acquaint SENCOs with skills and strategies in assessing the support needs of students with SEN at different learning stages and devising relevant Tier-2 support measures and deploying additional resources to match the assessed needs of students. Most importantly, the seminars aimed at establishing a structured way to examine and evaluate the quality and effectiveness of the Tier-2 support measures to ensure a positive impact on the progress of students.

Second Phase of the Jockey Club Diversity at Schools Project (Learning Support Team)
In this project, project members take up the role as the Learning Support (LS) Team to collaborate with three units in HKU and PolyU to provide learning support and training plus research assistance to the participating primary and secondary schools. The duration will be three years and the amount of funding for EdUHK project team is $15,710,000.

At the end of the project, the LS team will maximize the school-based resources (e.g. manpower, expertise, funding on hiring other professional etc.) provided by the Government to better support students with diverse learning needs. Moreover, the LS team will also extend support coverage from that provided by an individual (Learning Support Assistants, LSAs) to a team (the school-based learning support team) to support students with specific educational needs across Tiers 1 to 3. the LS team will also connect different stakeholders and segregated school-based support into a cohesive and student-oriented support plan through professional communication and the (electronic Individualized Education Program) eIEP module in the Data Management Platform (DMP).

Developing A Step-by-Step On-line Guidebook to Implement Capstone Projects for SEC Department with Videos and Reference Materials
The emergence of Capstone Projects to be deployed in the new four-year curriculum is an education reform lately initiated in EDUHK. Based on the existing piloting experiences and materials of Capstone Project (CP) in the SEC, this project aims at assisting the colleagues in the SEC Department to understand, brainstorm, initiate and supervise their Capstone Projects as an alternative for their departmental final-year Honour Project (HP). In this proposed project, we aim at creating a step-by-step on-line guidebook which could enable our SEC colleagues to initiate Capstone Project as an alternative pedagogy considering social impacts, practicability and employability. The ten chapters of the on-line guidebook include video-clip demonstrations, planning, assessments, teaching activities, materials, exemplifications and video clips involved in SEC Capstone Project. Approximately 40 pre/in-service teaching staff members from SEC Department and their undergraduate year-4 students (BEd) are the beneficiaries.
Project Start Year: 2020, Principal Investigator(s): CHIM, Ho Yeung, Hastings
 
Developing a Web-based Forum to Assist in/pre-service Teachers with Inclusive Teaching Packages and Video Cases
This project aims at developing a teaching resource package accessible to teachers on a web-based forum in which 150 lesson cases with lesson plans, teaching material and differentiated exercises across various subjects for pre/in-service teachers in both secondary and primary school sectors are incorporated . In addition, this project further integrates 72 inclusive lessons video clips from the sample lesson plans and teaching packages which could enable teachers to discuss the feasibility of adopting those inclusive lessons in their own inclusive classrooms.
Project Start Year: 2019, Principal Investigator(s): CHIM, Ho Yeung Hastings 詹浩洋
 
A Multi-faceted Inclusive Teaching Packages with Lesson Plans, Teaching Material and Differentiated Exercises across Various Subjects
A multi-faceted inclusive teaching resource package containing 115 in-depth case studies with lesson plans, teaching material and differentiated exercises across various subjects stored in a CD are developed for students to understand how to guide frontline/pre-service teachers to teach students with different learning problems. By using a lesson study approach, the package starts with a lesson case showing the lesson plans based on a wide range of subjects in both primary and secondary school setting. Then different teaching approaches, materials and differentiated exercises are presented to demonstrate a variety of ways to deal with inclusive classrooms. The aim of this teaching package is to enhance frontline/pre-service teachers’ efficacy as well as foster collaboration among the teachers through discussions on the lesson cases. Evaluation is done through pre-and post-questionnaires based on Bandura (2006) teaching self- efficacy construct and a focus group interview will be followed. This study provides empirical evidence that such inclusive teaching package is designed and implemented appropriately and is closely integrated with the inquiry learning, which can play a significant role in enhancing teachers self-efficacy and collaborative inquiry of the education community.
Project Start Year: 2018, Principal Investigator(s): CHIM, Ho Yeung Hastings 詹浩洋
 
Serving Students with SEN Using Teaching/Service Package Approach
Capstone projects are generally designed to encourage students to think critically, solve challenging problems, and develop skills such as oral communication, public speaking, research skills, media literacy, teamwork, planning, self-sufficiency, or goal setting. Nonetheless, rarely are capstone experiences conducted in FEHD faculty. In this project, we aim at initiating capstone experiences with the:

 Compilation of the categorization list for capstone experiences from the six departments in the FEHD faculty (for reference, please see appendix A)
 Compilation of guidelines, instructions on six departments’ suggested capstone projects (for reference, please see appendix B)
 Development of a standardized marking criteria for evaluating those capstone projects (for reference, please see appendix C)

Developing a multi-faceted Chinese version of Teacher Evaluation Form (C-TEF) for an in-service inclusive education training program
Lesson observations form for inclusive lesson might be inadequate. In this study, the lesson observation form for an in-service inclusive teachers training has been developed which helps to investigate how teacher participants changed their inclusive practices throughout a series of try-out teaching. This study investigates if the items could be fitted in the Foremen (2014) eco-system (teacher, student, curriculum & resources, physical setting) for inclusive lessons. Based on the Framework for Teaching (FFT) Evaluation Instrument (Danielson, 1996, 2007) and other existing instruments for lesson observation, a Chinese version of teacher evaluation form (C-TEF) catering for the current BAT Advance Course under the provision of EDUHK was developed. The lesson observation form consists of 44 questions which are embedded in four specific domains: teachers (22 items), students (7 items), curriculum and resources (9 items) as well as physical setting (5 items). With such instrument, researchers might be able to see the strength and weakness of the special education training from the data.
Project Start Year: 2016, Principal Investigator(s): CHIM, Ho Yeung Hastings 詹浩洋
 
Fostering Discussion and Collaborative Inquiry through Establishment of a Case Video Library
This project is to develop a teaching resource package with 76 demonstration video cases. The cases present students with different learning problems (e.g. students who have difficulties in their reading and writing or students who have problems in their social skills). It also enables teachers to have collaborative inquiry after viewing the videos. The video was evaluated based on questionnaires administered to 154 in-service teachers who had participated in using the video cases during the lessons followed by a focus group interview. This study provides empirical evidence that technology – in this case, the video library–provided it is designed and implemented appropriately and is closely integrated with the inquiry learning curriculum, can play a significant role in enhancing student self-efficacy and collaborative inquiry of the education community.
