以移动技术为媒介为大学生提供一种自律及个人化的单词学习方法

Effective learning of second language (L2) vocabulary hinges on the learners’ ability to self-regulate their learning. However, little research interest has been shown in how students self-regulate when they are left on their own to explore L2 vocabulary learning mediated by mobile technologies. In this research, a self-regulated and personalised (SRP) vocabulary learning approach is developed and its effectiveness measured. This research aims to help students develop a heightened capacity for self-regulation to learn L2 vocabulary with mobile technologies more efficiently and effectively. This research adopts a mixedmethod design. An experimental design is adopted to find out to what extent students can learn L2 vocabulary using the SRP approach in a mobile technology-mediated environment via a self-directed intervention for one semester. In addition, a multicase study will be conducted to provide qualitative evidence to verify whether the self-directed SRP approach can lead to a heightened capacity for self-regulation.

以音韵规则和声学感知的教学对中国ESL学习者英语单词重音韵律习得的影响

English is stress-timed while Chinese is syllable-timed, which makes English word stress placement difficult for Chinese learners of English. This project aims to develop assessment tasks to identify Chinese learners’ difficulties in English word stress placement in perception and production, design training programmes to examine whether word stress can be acquired systematically, and conduct a teaching experiment to evaluate the effectiveness of the training programmes in facilitating the learning of word stress. This project will generate substantial impact in both theory and practice.

Preparing pre-service language teachers to teach critical thinking: An ethnographic case study in Hong Kong

This project seeks to investigate how student teachers are prepared to teach CT in a pre-service language teacher education programme in Hong Kong. Adopting an ethnographic case study design and informed by an ecological perspective on teacher education, the project will explore how student teachers learn to teach CT in relation to their programme coverage, coherence and applicability. The project will also draw on multiple perspectives from language teacher educators and programme leaders/coordinators to discover how CT is integrated with their situated teacher education curricula. Such an ethnographic design not only can contribute to our understanding of CT, but can also generate insights into the dynamic, complex process of teacher learning across different sites, influenced by a range of institutional and socio-cultural factors.

The Identity Construction Experiences of Teachers of English to Young Learners in Mainland China

This project responds to the need for research into the teaching of English to young learners (TEYL), defined as children between the ages of 5-12. Despite the significant increase in popularity of TEYL globally, including mainland China, our knowledge of how TEYL is implemented, the attitudes of teachers, and the challenges they face is scant. This project, therefore, addresses this gap in our understanding of English language teaching and learning by exploring the experiences of one group of primary school English teachers in mainland China. A particular contribution of this project is to examine the experiences and perceptions of teachers of English to young learners using the theoretical lens of teacher identity. The results of this project will be of interest to policy makers, teacher educators, school authorities, researchers, and teachers of young learners themselves, both in mainland China and analogous educational settings worldwide.

即将消失的声音:冷战时期香港左派电影工作者的口述历史

This oral history project aims to document the voices of Hong Kong leftist film workers who were active from 1949 to 1966 and to utilize their voices to reconstruct Cold War Hong Kong history. The principal investigator adopts the common usage of the term “leftist” during this era, defining leftist film workers as those who worked for the three major leftist film studios and the sole distributor of films made in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Until the mid-1960s, leftists controlled a significant share of the Hong Kong film market, produced popular movies and exported their productions and PRC-made films to other Chinese communities

跨地域的文学流转─王敬羲、港版《纯文学》、「文星丛刊」与六七十年代臺、港文学场域

本计划拟以王敬羲主编之港版《纯文学》及港版「文星丛刊」为例子,研究六十年代台、港文学场域,以及六七十年代台、港两地文学出版所涉的文学传播与接受课题。王敬羲(1932-2008)早年在香港完成中学课程后到台湾升学,回港后透过他开设的正文出版社,出版《纯文学》(香港版),又透过一九六八年开设的文艺书屋引进「文星丛刊」,以至当「文星丛刊」在台湾被查禁后,以文艺书屋名义在香港延续出版,许多香港读者透过港版《纯文学》接触台湾文学,透过文艺书屋读到殷海光、李敖、柏杨、白先勇、余光中等作家著作,因此,王敬羲被视为六、七十年代「港台文化桥梁」。

 

 

但另一方面,他未能妥善处理版权和版税事务,屡屡被指责不予作者版税、损害知识产权,王敬羲在六十年代中至七十年代所造成的,是复杂的文化出版事件,本计划拟全面探讨王敬羲在台、港两地的文学出版流布,以及文学场域上的意义。

从香港小学阅读资源探究两性的塑造和定位

The present study arises from the belief that early school readers play a major role in the socialisation of children’s lives and their gender development, and that schooling is an important medium of reproducing cultures and of perpetuating the existing mechanisms of domination. The study aims to examine how male and female characters are represented in the readers produced by local publishers and those recommended by the Education Bureau in its two popular reading schemes, namely the Primary Literacy Programme: Reading and Writing, and Reading across the Curriculum. A total of 180 readers for Key Stage 1 (Primary 1-3) will be selected for the analysis. The value of the investigation is that it will help heighten the public awareness of the power of book authors to position the two genders through various means.

史实与想像之间:《穆天子传》与中国早期小说的兴起

关于中国小说的起源,过去多以魏、晋为伊始,至唐代发展成熟。近年来出土文献研究提供了战国、秦汉时期,早期小说的材料。但是有关中国早期小说的起源、文体特征以及社会意义,由于史料不足,学界尚乏共识。本研究认为,《穆天子传》恰可以弥补这一个缺环。  作为中国史上最早出土并完整流传至今的出土文献,《穆天子传》的研究涉及文献学、古文字学、文学史与历史地理学等多个学科,具有深远意义。基于本人过去在西周史的研究基础,本研究欲对《穆天子传》作一次通盘研究。首先,从古文字学与版本学的角度,重新检阅其文本与文字隶定的正确性。其次,以年代明确的金文为时间标尺,分析《穆天子传》包含的多时代成份。在这些基础之上,本研究进一步从文学史的视角,探讨《穆天子传》的文献性质。本研究希望超越真、伪二分的传统框架,改由史实与想象互动的文学创作过程,解释《穆天子传》包含真实与想象成份的原因,进而探讨战国时期史学传统蜕变出小说的背景与历程,以及早期小说的作者、读者、传布以及阅读方式等议题。最后,本研究将以《穆天子传》保存的地理讯息,探讨战国时期魏国的地理知识及其西北地理想象,为早期小说真伪杂糅的文本特质提供又一例证。  本研究涉及《穆天子传》的文本基础以及历史意义,期许其对文献、历史、地理与文学史,均作出贡献

日本禅僧万里集九的黄庭坚诗注《帐中香》研究

十一世纪的黄庭坚(1045-1105)号山谷,是型塑北宋诗歌与禅宗形态、内涵的代表。其《山谷内集》有诗逾七百首,是今人认知山谷诗学、禅学的核心文献。该集历来以难解而闻名,注家甚少。自古及今的华人世界内唯宋代任渊(1090?-1164?)曾遍注内集诗,又唯钱钟书(1910-1998)选注的逾八十首为当代学界山谷诗注的典范。然而,十五世纪室町时代的日本禅僧万里集九(1428-1507?)曾著书《帐中香》,以汉文遍注内集。万里独特的知识背景、阐释立场与心态,使得该书在诠解旨趣异于华人注家的同时,尤在认识《山谷内集》中诗禅关系的问题上,深具洞察。然此书的存在及其重要性,长期未为学界所熟知。本计划即将针对万里集九及其《帐中香》展开首次全面研究。笔者尤其将通过检视该书以禅解诗的独特路径,反思《山谷内集》固有的内典化倾向,进而重新认识黄庭坚所引领的迥异于唐代传统的宋型诗禅新风。同时,本计划亦将有助学界重新探索,近古以降的中日两国在诗禅文化上曾有的互动与共性。

在香港看中国大陆电视剧:年轻人,身分认同与跨文化消费

Hong Kong television drama helped defined the Hong Kong identities, and its export into China has influenced generations of mainland audience. However, recent years has witnessed a “reverse flow”: many Hong Kong youngsters have taken an interest or developed a preference for television drama produced in China, such as Scarlet Heart (步步惊心), My Sunshine (何以笙箫默), and Eternal Love (三生三世十里桃花). This phenomenon is far from self-evident because all Hong Kongers' national identifications drop after 2008, and this tendency is most evident in the youngsters. This project, thus, addresses an important and intriguing question: why, in light of significant anti-Mainland sentiments among Hong Kong youth, are Mainland TV dramas popular with this audience?

香港的秘书史:嘉诺撒圣心商学书院的个案

In the Hong Kong context, the secretarial profession was considered one of the first whitecollar jobs for women, and became an indispensable component of the city’s economy in the latter half of the 20th century when Hong Kong gradually evolved into an international financial center. This project will trace the history of this phenomenon by using Sacred Heart Canossian College of Commerce (SHCCC) as a case study.
