Project

Provision of Enhanced Support to Senior Year (SY) and New First-year- first-degree (FYFD) Education-plus Programmes (FHM)
This project aims to address the specific needs of students of Senior Year (SY) programmes and provide them with enhanced support and learning opportunities during their stay on the programme. Surveys will be conducted to gauge the effectiveness of the provision of support to the respective programmes in different aspects, such as publicity/ programme promotion, faculty/programme-based induction, academic advising, career support, language enhancement, entrepreneurial skills and internship experience.

Age-related Variations in the Usage of Sentence-final Particles (SFPs) in Cantonese and Chinese Mandarin
This project proposes an analytical framework of sentence-final particles (SFPs) in cognitive and functional approaches and applies the framework to the studies of Cantonese and Chinese Mandarin SFPs. A series of experimental tasks are designed to elicit natural speech data and analyze the usage of SFP and the influential factors, such as formalness and emotion. The variations in the usage of SFPs by young and old people will be analyzed.

Symposium on International Chinese Language Teaching and Learning in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau
In recent years, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has been developing rapidly with frequent international exchanges. International Chinese language education has become more and more important in this context. With the theme of “International Chinese Language Teacher Training and Education in the Greater Bay Area”, this symposium invited experts and scholars from the Greater Bay Area to share their research findings and teaching experience and explore new directions for research on international Chinese language education. Furthermore, to enhance the theme of teacher education, preservice international Chinese language teachers were warmly encouraged to participate in the symposium, and there was a special session of Student Paper Award competition.

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., self-assessment, peer-assessment, use of formative feedback from teachers) to achieve academic success and high quality attributes upon graduation. There is a compelling need to provide a rigorous blended learning approach that can link teaching, both online and offline learning and assessment practices (self-assessment, peer-assessment, and teacher-assessment) in a visible, achievable and sustainable way. The A+BLe approach is expected to also encourage students to not only undertake the learning activities actively, but also tell students and teachers how well the objectives of teaching and learning have been achieved. Based on these concerns, this project aims to provide an innovative and creative blended learning approach (A+BLe) to link teaching, learning, and assessment practices in a visible and systematic way to promote EdUHK students’ multiple learning outcomes that are essential for their professional development.

Language Enhancement at EdUHK and Beyond: Fostering a Community of Practice on Technology-enhanced Language Learning and Teaching
This project intends to achieve the following objectives: 1). Identify creative and effective use of technologies in language learning and teaching (English / Cantonese / Putonghua / other modern languages); 2). Investigate how such technologies help to enhance students’ language learning and teachers’ language teaching through guided self-reflection and critical evaluations of their technology-enhanced language learning/teaching practices; 3). Build a Community of Practice on technology-enhanced language learning and teaching among tertiary students and academic/teaching staff and motivate them to use technologies in language learning and teaching; 4). Discuss language learning related issues (e.g., English/Chinese academic writing, corpus-based language learning, etc.) and offer pedagogical suggestions on technology-enhanced language learning and teaching for both students and teachers; 5). Sustain the community members’ interests in using technologies in language learning and teaching through regular sharing of members’ successful experiences and invited talks given by local and overseas experts in the field of technology enhanced language learning and teaching, and through the organization of an international conference on technology-enhanced language learning and teaching.

Sentence-Final Particles in Cantonese Interrogatives: An Interface Study
This project put forth a unified research framework for both SFPs and sentence-final intonation, i.e., to link up a syntactic analysis and prosodic feature identification. To limit the domain of research into a more manageable size, the scope of our study is restricted to the SFPs in Cantonese interrogatives, which will be put into a pool as the "core" data of this project. Both the controlled phonetic experiment and the natural speech collection will be conducted in this research project to investigate the prosodic features of SFPs and the interactions between SFPs and sentence-final intonation.
Project Start Year: 2020, Principal Investigator(s): Tang, Sze Wing (ZHANG, Ling 張凌 as Co-Investigator)
 
Teaching Chinese as a Second Language in Chinese-Speaking Areas versus Overseas: A Dialogue between Hong Kong and Vietnam
Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL, henceforth) has been more and more prosperous in recent years, which is conducted simultaneously both in Chinese-speaking areas (including Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau) and overseas. The current project aims to call for a dialogue between these two sides, with Hong Kong as a representative of Chinese-speaking areas and Vietnam as a representative of overseas countries. We propose to invite TCSL teachers at Vietnam to join the annual International Seminar on Teaching Chinese as a Second Language at our EdUHK. We will invite them to provide lectures at a workshop as well as experience sharing sessions with us. They can help us to know more about the needs of L2 learners overseas, and more specifically, the needs of Vietnam students, which may also be expanded to L2 students at Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, through joining our seminar, these guest Vietnam teachers can get informed of more about TCSL in Hong Kong and China, which will bring new perspectives of insight to them for their future teaching.

Speech Sound Production and Perception of Putonghua by Cantonese-speaking Children in Primary Schools
In this project, we propose to carry out a cross-sectional study among Cantonese-speaking children from Primary 1, Primary 3, and Primary 5 in Hong Kong. Acoustic measurement will be conducted to identify Putonghua production errors more accurately. Our pilot studies suggest this new technique can help to find out hidden problems that cannot be revealed by traditional impressionistic methods. Thus, in addition to a general assessment of the language production of Putonghua by Cantonese-speaking children, acoustic measurement will be conducted on those problematic phonemes in order to obtain a more accurate analysis.

Perception studies will also be conducted within the framework of the Perception Assimilation Model (Best, 1995). Discrimination tasks and identification tasks will be carried out and analyzed to investigate whether perception affects production error patterns. We will also try to propose an integrated assimilation model of perception and production according to the experimental data.

Tone and Intonation Studies in Cantonese Post-stroke Aphasic Patients
This project will investigate tone and intonation production among aphasic patients and healthy controls, who are all native speakers of Cantonese. Acoustic analysis will be conducted to quantitively identify the production deficits. In addition to tones in isolated citation form (such as in naming tasks), tones in continuous speech (such as in narrative discourses) will also be analyzed. Different types of intonations will be explored, including linguistic intonations to differentiate a declarative sentence and an interrogative sentence, and paralinguistic intonations to differentiate different emotions.
Project Start Year: 2017, Principal Investigator(s): ZHANG, Ling 張凌
 
Experimental Studies on Prosodic Grammar of Chinese
