Personal Profile

A sociologist, Dr Hayes Tang is interested in the fields of educational administration and policy, higher education, academic profession and youth studies. His research reconsiders the sociological role of higher education in the rise of 'academic entrepreneurialism', focussing on East Asia. He is committed to create new knowledge in application for better education governance and policy innovation in the age of global inequalities. He aspires to build lifelong partnership with students and professionals so as to enlighten his analysis on educational development and policy anew with fresh perspectives, along with greater social impact and professional relevance. Recently completed two GRF projects (General Research Fund by Hong Kong Research Grants Council), he is Assistant Professor of Department of Education Policy and Leadership, and Programme Leader of MA in Leading Innovative Learning Organizations (LILO) at the Education University of Hong Kong, as well as Programme Leader of Cambridge Professional Development Qualification (International Diploma of Educational Leadership accreditation). He is completing another GRF project "Reconsidering Academic Entrepreneurialism in East Asia: Diverse Voices and Critical Insights from the Academic Profession of Flagship Universities”. Meanwhile he completed a PPR project (Public Policy Research by the HKSAR Policy Innovation and Co-ordination Office) on youth and aspirations in Hong Kong in 2020. He serves as the Executive Director of the Asia Pacific Educational Research Association (APERA), Associate Editor (Sociology and Education) of Humanities & Social Sciences Communications (SSCI-indexed), Senior Associate Editor of the Journal of Comparative and International Higher Education (the official journal of Comparative and International Education Society's Higher Education Special Interest Group), and is on the Editorial Board of Chinese Education & Society (Taylor & Francis).


On top of scholarly research, he considers education a commitment imperative to an academic life. Championing the spirit of liberal arts education, Hayes was presented at the start of his academic career the Outstanding Teacher Award by the School of Professional and Continuing Education, The University of Hong Kong in 2012. On issues about education, innovation and youth engagement, he was interviewed by journalism including ARTE (Association relative à la télévision européenne) (Franco-German channel), The Straits Times, South China Morning Post (SCMP), Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK, Radio 3), China Daily and D100 Radio. Upon invitation, he delivered a Fulbright-Hays seminar for a delegation of American school teachers during their visit to The University of Hong Kong in August 2015. The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad are hosted by the National Committee on United States-China Relations, USA.


In service of knowledge exchange and transfer, Dr Hayes Tang welcomes media consultation, external membership, community/professional seminars and commissioned R&D projects. The key focus of his scholarship is to innovate knowledge for education, social impact and global citizenship. He can be contacted at hhhtang@eduhk.hk

Reconsidering Academic Entrepreneurialism in East Asia: Diverse Voices and Critical Insights from the Academic Profession of Flagship Universities
This study will examine the impact of the ‘entrepreneurial turn’ in higher education on the everyday life of academics, the interactions between universities and the academic profession and the consequences of these interactions for institutional change at flagship universities in three global cities - Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo in East Asia. Since the global spread of neo-liberalism in the 1990s, economic globalisation has intensified the ‘entrepreneurial governance’ in the social institution of higher education where funding is increasingly being allocated on a competitive basis. At the advent of the global knowledge-based economy, missions of universities have been undergoing substantial transformations, in which knowledge increasingly becomes a new driver of economic development. To guarantee future financial sustainability and secure further resources that would propel institutional excellence, universities have proactively pursued innovation in their everyday management. The literature debates the extent to which higher education institutions see a global convergence of change from ivory tower to ‘entrepreneurial university’ (Etzkowitz et al., 2008). The global trend of entrepreneurialism (for example Etzkowitz & Leydesdorff, 2000; Clark, 1998a, 1998b;
Shattock, 2009; Tang, 2014) profoundly affects the interactions between universities, the academic profession and institutional change (Gumport, 2019). Despite the prevailing policy trends and emerging scholarship of this topic in Western literature (Rhoades & Stensaker, 2017), research on entrepreneurialism at flagship universities (Stensaker & Benner, 2013) and the academic profession in Asia is lacking (Yang, 2012). The impact of academic entrepreneurialism on East Asian flagship universities, academic life and institutional change remains unknown if the dearth of related research persists.

This study will draw on the methods of institutional ethnography (Smith, 2005). Unique from other qualitative methods, it

University Students Supporting School Teachers of Academically At-Risk Students through Educational Technology
During school closures, teachers in less resourceful schools have struggled to cater to the diverse learning needs of academically at-risk students in their class. Without the physical presence of the teacher, these students, lacking the digital resources and rich learning experiences with educational technology, may not know how to stay engaged in the learning and teaching tasks and activities in online learning environments. EdUHK Bachelor of Education (BEd) students, as future teachers, who have been immersed in technology-enabled learning and teaching experiences, will be able to provide technological support to these school teachers to engage their students. By working with and supporting these teachers, EdUHK BEd students have the opportunities to work in actual teaching contexts and have authentic and meaningful learning experiences in local schools. Meanwhile, EdUHK pre-service teachers could support in-service teachers to enhance the digital experiential learning of their students, namely through the portable future classroom this project will offer. Therefore, this project aims to develop a professional learning community of BEd students, FEHD staff and in-service teachers, and enhances student learning engagement and outcomes by providing EdUHK students with the opportunities to support teachers (technically and pedagogically) of academically at-risk students through the experiential learning with state-of-the-art educational technology.

The next normal: Blending synchronistic and asynchronistic e-pedagogies to improve and sustain online teaching and learning
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, universities and schools internationally shifted from face-to-face to online learning. Despite these efforts, EdUHK data indicated that more could be done to enhance the quality of online learning. Teachers still grappled with how to design high-quality online learning experiences for their students.

Moving into a new academic year, these issues and challenges faced by students and teachers must be addressed at both the meta- and micro-level of the learning and teaching environment. EdUHK must lead the way in enhancing the quality of online learning and teaching by investigating, developing, implementing and disseminating high quality e-pedagogies that can be sustained into the “next normal” (Bryant, Chen, Dorn, and Hall, April 2020).

This project proposes to create “virtual classrooms” marked by features of quality learning: interaction among teachers and students, differentiation of instructional practices, creativity, mobility, and mastery. It conceptualizes blended learning (combining online and face-to-face learning) as a blend of synchronistic and asynchronistic online e-pedagogies. It accounts for diverse needs of colleagues and students with regard to disciplinary requirements, their readiness as users of online technologies and mastery of e-pedagogies, and location of delivery.

Narrating Academic identity of Higher Education Researchers in East Asia: Diverse Responses to the Impact of COVID-19
The purpose of this study is to describe and understand the academic identity of higher education (HE) researchers in East Asia. Using the approach of narrative research, it will examine the way in which academic identity affects East Asian HE researchers in their response to the impact of COVID-19, and how the global pandemic affects the reworking of academic identity. Empirical analysis of this research will contribute to a better understanding of the role of academic identity in enhancing educational and research productivity at universities, including the field of higher education studies.

Interpersonal Strengths as Predictors of Pro-Environmental Behaviors in Collectivist Societies
This project will assess how kindness or individual’s dispositions to perform good deeds to others may be associated with positive environmental attitudes and “eco-friendly behaviors” using structural equation modeling approach. To provide evidence about precise mechanisms underscoring the link of kindness to pro-environmental behaviors, we will also explore the mediating effects of nature connectedness and positive emotions.

Investigating Hong Kong Students' Aspirations for the Future
In recent months, school students have organized school strikes, class boycotts, human protest
chains, joined front-line protests, been arrested (30% under 18 years) and shot (2 students; 14
& 18 years), with more than 300 school students involved in the PolyU siege. For other students, the protests disrupted their schooling and their relationships with family, peers and teachers. The longer-term impact on their aspirations, futures and sense of belonging/connectedness to Hong Kong is unknown.This project seeks to map Hong Kong adolescents’ (15-18 years) aspirations and views on the resources/capital needed to achieve their aspirations for the future, and how Hong Kong schools and society can help.

'Historical development of educational policies in Hong Kong' (PI: Lo, Wai Yin, Co-PI: Choi, Tae-Hee, Co-I: Hui, Hon Wing Joe), will investigate the historical development of key educational policies in Hong Kong, Australia, Mainland China, and Korea. Comparative understanding of the history of select policies will help understand the evolution of policies in interaction with the contexts and actors within. It will be informed by policy enactment theory (Ball, Maguire & Braun, 2012), and draw on frameworks which capture the complexities of policy processes (e.g., Choi, 2018; 2019), and analyse historical policy documents, research reports, public addresses and the media records, in addition to the academic literature.

Conceptions of Global Citizenship and Teacher Education
This research compares and examines the conceptions of global citizenship in the global citizenship related courses offered for the 15 Bachelor of Education (Honours) programmes at the Education University of Hong Kong. The research investigates the relationship between (a) the varied understandings, discourses and conceptions of global citizenship and (b) the disciplinary and pedagogical trainings of pre-service teachers, with particular focus on the formation of their professional identity and vison in teaching practice. While diversity of views and conceptions of global citizenship is cherished, it is meanwhile important to develop a cohesive framework that democratically captures the varied understandings, discourses and conceptions of
global citizenship. In the current practices of global citizenship education, the main challenge lies in the misalignment between the goals, curricula, pedagogies and assessment tools (Deardorff, 2006, 2009). Seeking the alignments of conceptions of global citizenship, this research contributes to the teaching and learning of the University by enhancement of students’ learning outcomes and core competencies, through the means of internationalisation in cross-faculty curriculum and the fostering of a culture of student engagement and reflections. All things considered, the impact of the research lies in the university-wide framework working towards a clarified and cohesive vision for global citizenship.
