Enhancing Students' Personal and Psychosocial Development with Self-learning Kit: A Positive Education Approach
This project aims at developing a self-learning kit on personal and psychosocial development for students’ preparation of their Field Experience (FE) and internships. Four aspects in personal development are identified in particular which are emotional management, social relationships and communication, leadership, and self-understanding and self-esteem, according to the feedback received from internship providers, teachers and students. The learning kit will be designed taking into account the feedback collected from the collaborating partners who offer fieldwork experience placements and internship opportunities, enhancement of student learning outcomes of FE and internships, and adoption of the positive education approach (Norrish, Williams, O’Connor, & Robinson, 2013). Activities such as self-assessments, case studies, knowledge/skill enrichment exercises, reflections and mini-quizzes will be included in the kit for each aspect.

Social prejudice on campus: The role of mass and social media on Hong Kong students’ prejudice
This project aims to investigate the influence of mass media and social media on the relationship between local Hong Kong students and Mainland students in tertiary education in Hong Kong. In particular we would like to find out how Hong Kong students are affected by the portrayal of mainland visitors/immigrants by the media, which could lead to the development of prejudice or even discrimination against mainland students in Hong Kong. We believe the attitudes of the Hong Kong students are mainly affected by the mass media and social media, and these prejudices affected mainland students’ adaptation to the new environment. This study will give us implications on how the prejudices of Hong Kong students develop; future research can thus focus on how to combat the prejudice between Hong Kong students and Mainland students in Hong Kong.
