Transmission and pedagogical models in Cantonese Opera: A study of the Chinese oral and the Western conservatory traditions in Hong Kong
This project has been granted by the General Research Fund of the Research Grant Council of Hong Kong in 2011-12. Cantonese opera is facing a crisis of transmission. Traditionally, Cantonese opera employs oral tradition in transmitting their artistry to the new generation. In recent decades, training artists for the profession has been influenced by the Western conservatory tradition. Different aspects of the genre are taught by different specialists during a limited length of time.

Creativity and Arts Assessment in Curriculum Reform: Patterns of Assessment Design, Preparation and Course Delivery in Key Stage 2, 3 and 4
Assessment is recognised as a key driver of teaching and learning, and 'assessment for learning' has become a major focus of educational reform in Hong Kong. Teaching and learning are very often geared towards the form and content of assessment, and teachers often treat assessment as a separate component of the curriculum. High-stakes standardised examinations can also create distortions in the goals and foci of teaching. Whilst creativity is usually associated with Music and Visual Arts, there . . .
