EDUM7360 Chinese Language Education in a Changing Context (3 units)
With the explosive growth of knowledge and the rapid change of technology, there is a demand of education reform. This course focuses on the changing needs of the 21st century in Chinese language teaching and learning. Chinese language, being the mother tongue of most Hong Kong students, faces the challenge of reforming the whole curriculum. The philosophy and spirit of the Chinese curriculum is studied to understand how language education is integrated with Chinese cultural studies and literature appreciation. The concept of learner centredness is introduced to learners to enhance their awareness on how to develop students’ ability in learning independently. School-based assessment is addressed, in which formative assessment of language use is highlighted. The introduction of a multi-level school-based assessment will be unfolded to learners during the course of study.
