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 . . .

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-enhance . . .

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 inv . . .

Improving and Enriching the Practice of Teaching Chinese Characters for CSL Teachers in Vietnam

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 . . .

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 In . . .

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 declara . . .
