隨着全球「漢語熱」以及對中文學習的需求日益殷切,以國際化中文師資培訓為特色的中文教育的高級學位課程因而成為業界關注的重要範疇。

 

作為香港最大的中文師資教育機構,香港教育大學中國語言學系聆聽到中文教育業界的呼聲,深知中小學教師、大專講師、學校校長和教育行政人員等,都希望提升自身的專業知識與技能,邁進事業新里程,特此推出一項新課程:「教育博士:語文教育(中文)」,以配合社會發展的需要。

 

相較於本地其他大專院校所辦的同類課程,本課程將依托香港教育大學在教育理論和教育實踐方面的區域優勢,充分發揮本學系所長,使學員得以全面掌握全球中文教育的最新議題,並從事相關範疇的前沿研究。研究範疇涵蓋以下四方面:一、語文教育;二、國際漢語教學;三、漢語語言學;四、中國文學、文化。語文與文化不可分割。相較於其他地區所辦的同類課程,本課程的另一個突出亮點是能讓學生在香港這樣獨一無二的中西文化交匯的氛圍中學習,有助學生明瞭如何更有效地於多元文化的語境下探討中文教育的新理念和新模式。

 

本課程一般修業年期為全日制三年或兼讀制四年,首兩年週六上、下午及週間晚上修課,學員須參與工作坊和研討會,並在導師個別指導下完成論文。
