Projects

Drama Education in Metaverse: Learning New Literacies beyond Classroom
This project aims to create a VLT package consisting of a metaverse-based learning space and a handbook for providing practical ideas for the implementation of the package. Blended with face-to-face teaching and learning, students can continue their drama-learning beyond classroom. In this virtual space, students can enjoy interactivity, safety and novelty by choosing their own avatars to participate in a variety of drama activities, such as process drama, character-profiling and rolling role, etc. While language and literature learning serve as the starting point of this project, its ultimate goal is to develop students’ literacy skills. Literacy here refers to the general operational skills, such as reading and writing, cultural perception and critical thinking.
Project Start Year: 2023, Principal Investigator(s): CHEUNG, Hiu Yan, Alice
 
Approaching Theatre for the Impression of Drama
The objective of the project is to encourage students who join LIT3012 to watch and appreciate drama; to observe “the Impression of Drama” – a core concept taught in the course – of a play; and to, furthermore, employ the approaches of analysing the impression of drama in their discussion of the play as well as to apply the concept in their own play writing and performance. To achieve this, the subsidies of ticket fee would be provided for students who are interested in joining the programme.
Project Start Year: 2021, Principal Investigator(s): CHEUNG, Hiu Yan, Alice
 
Aging, Rejuvenation and Environment in Chinese and European Early Modern Literature
This project seeks to examine the theoretical and pragmatic aspects of how faculty in universities in Hong Kong and Chicago can use Early Modern literature to encourage students to consider topics such as, aging, rejuvenation and the environment in a cross-cultural dimension. We are interested in studying how our current epistemologies, when dealing with these three topics, can be affected by the intercultural understanding and communication of values in a comparative perspective. By bringing together a discrete number of professors associated with the University of Chicago as well as faculty members from two different universities in Hong Kong in China, our goal is to study the styles, practices and logics of our research and teaching about the process of aging, techniques and rites of rejuvenation. We wish to examine the role that our cultural, emotional and geographical surroundings play in our understanding of these notions and practices. To accomplish this, we will focus on our field of specialization, early modern literature. We intend to discuss to what extent our current multidisciplinary approach is able to encourage not only future research but also find new ways to teach these topics in a more critical manner, and how new technologies can assist us in this process.
Project Start Year: 2019, Principal Investigator(s): Frederick A. De Armas (CHEUNG, Hiu Yan Alice 張曉恩 as Team Member)
