A Review of the GILO Self-assessment Questionnaire
The GILO self-assessment questionnaire is now almost a decade old. In July 2020, a working group was formed to kick-start a review of the survey items used. The working group agreed that there was an urgent need to review items on Global Perspectives (GILO 7) to improve their validity. It was estimated that the review will take about one year, and will involve a literature review, piloting of new/ replacement items (on at least 200 students), data analysis and substantial documentation efforts. Given the amount of work involved, it was suggested that the items for all seven GILOs be reviewed in stages. In this project, the team aims to: (a) identify the approach and methodology to review the items in the question bank of the GILO self-assessment questionnaire with reference to the Rubrics for Generic Intended Learning Outcomes (GILO Rubrics); (b) develop new/ replacement items for GILO 7 (Global Perspectives) in the question bank of the GILO self-assessment questionnaire with reference to the GILO Rubrics; (c) pilot the new/ replacement items for validation and reliability purposes; and (d) collect feedback on the new/ replacement items.

Designing and Evaluating an Artificial Intelligence Literacy Programme for University and Secondary School Students
In this digital society, in which the application of artificial intelligence (AI) is growing rapidly, it is essential for university and secondary school students to be literate in AI. This study aims to design and evaluate an AI literacy programme to be delivered to 360 students over two years by deploying the flipped classroom learning approach. We propose a two-dimensional conceptual framework for AI literacy: the cognitive dimension covers AI concepts and methods for engaging with AI, evaluating AI applications, and using AI for problem solving; and the affective and sociocultural dimension covers empowerment by AI and the ethical use of AI. Pre-/post-course surveys and tests and focus group interviews will be conducted to evaluate how effective the programme is in equipping the students with AI concepts, developing their awareness of AI, and empowering them. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the flipped classroom learning approach for the AI literacy programme will be assessed. This study will contribute to the development of a programme for promoting AI literacy and the validation of instruments for evaluating AI concepts, AI literacy, and AI empowerment. The impacts of the study will include the promotion of AI literacy in society, especially among the young generation, and the encouragement of ethical AI use.

Beyond the E-Portfolio: Connectivity and Communities of Learning in a Virtual Environment
With the emphasis of tertiary education shifting beyond the physical boundaries of the university, it is important to have a means for students to feel connected when they are geographically distant and to connect with their disparate learning experiences in order to make meaning of these experiences beyond individual, solitary reflection. The aim of this three-year, cross-disciplinary, cross-institutional project is to stimulate students to form virtual communities of learning supported by a faculty mentor to explore more deeply how their individual learning experiences affect their development as university students and as human beings. To achieve this, we will create a virtual learning environment, or working e-portfolio, that becomes a tool for mobile communication, social learning and collaboration, in which students coalesce into communities of learning motivated by the challenge of an inquiry-based approach. This will serve the dual purpose of enhancing student learning while also providing psychosocial support when they are physically not present in the classroom. The higher education sector as a whole will share the benefits of having a learning framework and an e-learning tool which work synergistically to encourage conversation, build social and electronic connectivity and puts the collective learning power of a community at its core.

Promoting Mobile Learning in the EdUHK and beyond through further development of a Mobile Learning Community
In recent years, the fast development of mobile technologies has greatly enriched and assisted students’ subject learning in higher education, and more and more lecturers have started using mobile technologies (smart phone, tablet, pocket pc, notebook, etc.) to assist their teaching. This project aims to showcase the vitality and creativity of tertiary students of different levels (undergraduates, masters, doctorates) and from different disciplines (Science, Social Science, Education, Arts and Humanities, etc.) in mobile learning, and lecturers’ good practices of utilizing mobile technologies in assisting their teaching, with the ultimate goal of promoting mobile learning in the EdUHK and beyond.

From 2013 to 2015, through a Community of Practice (CoP) project led by the current PIs, a Mobile Learning Community (MLC) was established successfully in the HKIEd. Although the CoP project was a success, without funding support, it is hard to sustain the meaningful community activities. In this newly proposed project, we aim to promote mobile learning in the EdUHK and beyond through further development of the Mobile Learning Community we have established. First, we aim to expand the membership of the MLC, and include members from sister institutions in Hong Kong, and from overseas institutions. A survey among EdUHK staff members about their current practices regarding the use of mobile technologies in their teaching will be conducted, and follow up interviews will be carried out, so as to identify and promote good practices of mobile-assisted teaching. Students’ mobile learning stories will also be collected and shared. Furthermore, we will conduct a series of seminars/workshops/sharing sessions on mobile learning by students and staff from EdUHK, and invite experts in this area from outside EdUHK to give public lectures on mobile learning. E-portfolios about students’ mobile learning experiences and teachers’ mobile-assisted teaching experiences will be compiled and uploaded onto the MLC website. Large number of App reviews related to different subject learning written by students will be uploaded onto MLC website for sharing as well. A Facebook page will be created to allow community members to exchange ideas about mobile learning conveniently.

It is hoped that, through this project, an extended and intensive study of the use of mobile technologies by students and academic staff can be carried out, which will shed light on how mobile technologies can be integrated into existing technology use in higher education and enhance students’ subject learning.

Developing Coding Competency and Computational Thinking among Learners in HKIEd with Interest in Mathematics Education
Coding education involves the cultivation of students’ programming literacy, which is highlighted in a number of educational documents as a competency that should be possessed by everyone, not just computer programmers. In the latest development of coding education, the focus is no longer on the accuracy of code, but the production of programming artifacts such as Apps, games, animations, and digital stories, the formation of communities, as students usually collaborate to produce the programming artifacts, and the use of programming to control physical objects. The objective of this project is to provide courses for HKIEd students to learn about coding, including the development of Apps, the use of programming to remote control digital devices, and the design and production of tangible artifacts through 3D printing. To evaluate the effectiveness of the project, instruments for assessing the development of students’ coding competency and literacy are needed. Hence another objective of this project is to develop a set of assessment instruments for coding competency and literacy.

Online resource-based inquiry learning environment: Effects of teacher pedagogical practices on science understanding of primary learners working in groups
The digital age has not only changed the fundamental nature of resources; its exponential growth in amount and access has also changed how and where instruction and learning take place. Although some teachers can make wide use of learning resources from the internet, the resources are often used haphazardly. We know from the literature that inquiry learning is an effective pedagogy, but there are varied conceptions in employing teacher scaffolding in the pedagogical design of inquiry learning, particularly with learners at primary level. Hence, this proposed research attempts to answer the question “How do different pedagogical orientations of inquiry learning using online resources help primary learners working in groups develop better science understanding? The research will take upper primary pupils studying science topics in the form of groups as the context of study, and aim to gain an in-depth understanding of teacher conceptions and practices that are essential to support effective inquiry learning. Insights gained from this proposed research study will result in models of teacher pedagogical practices that can be used to inform future teacher professional development initiatives in teacher education.


This proposal is based on the studies conducted by the research team in the previous years. These studies provide preliminary understanding of effective pedagogical designs and impacts on learning; for example, the approaches of inquiry learning, learner academic background and/or teacher support levels. This proposed research will involve teachers applying instructional practices with available online resource-based learning units to learners working in groups which is a commonly used classroom setting for science activities. This is to extend the investigation to identify how teachers’ pedagogical practices can impact learners’ understanding of science.


The research methodology includes survey, interview, observation and analysis of lessons with support from the research team to explore how to “Make Teaching and Learning More Effective” as intervention throughout the two-year study. Changes of teachers’ conceptions and pedagogical practices will be identified by pre and post-lesson interviews. Learners’ learning will be measured by pre and post-lesson tests and concept mapping to study the changes in science understanding. The data analysis will focus on investigating the characteristics, correlations, multiple regression and interaction effect between conceptions of teaching, pedagogical practices, learner background and learning outcomes. The findings will provide useful information to facilitate teachers to design effective practices with the use of online resources in appropriate ways, in order to enhance learners’ inquiry learning of science.
