以移動技術為媒介為大學生提供一種自律及個人化的單詞學習方法

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.

以音韻規則和聲學感知的教學對中國ESL學習者英語單詞重音韻律習得的影響

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.

即將消失的聲音:冷戰時期香港左派電影工作者的口述歷史

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

跨地域的文學流轉─王敬羲、港版《純文學》、「文星叢刊」與六七十年代臺、港文學場域

本計劃擬以王敬羲主編之港版《純文學》及港版「文星叢刊」為例子,研究六十年代臺、港文學場域,以及六七十年代臺、港兩地文學出版所涉的文學傳播與接受課題。王敬羲(1932-2008)早年在香港完成中學課程後到台灣升學,回港後透過他開設的正文出版社,出版《純文學》(香港版),又透過一九六八年開設的文藝書屋引進「文星叢刊」,以至當「文星叢刊」在台灣被查禁後,以文藝書屋名義在香港延續出版,許多香港讀者透過港版《純文學》接觸台灣文學,透過文藝書屋讀到殷海光、李敖、柏楊、白先勇、余光中等作家著作,因此,王敬羲被視為六、七十年代「港台文化橋樑」。

 

但另一方面,他未能妥善處理版權和版稅事務,屢屢被指責不予作者版稅、損害知識產權,王敬羲在六十年代中至七十年代所造成的,是複雜的文化出版事件,本計劃擬全面探討王敬羲在臺、港兩地的文學出版流佈,以及文學場域上的意義。

從香港小學閱讀資源探究兩性的塑造和定位

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.

史實與想像之間:《穆天子傳》與中國早期小說的興起

關於中國小說的起源,過去多以魏、晉為伊始,至唐代發展成熟。近年來出土文獻研究提供了戰國、秦漢時期,早期小說的材料。但是有關中國早期小說的起源、文體特徵以及社會意義,由於史料不足,學界尚乏共識。本研究認為,《穆天子傳》恰可以彌補這一個缺環。   作為中國史上最早出土並完整流傳至今的出土文獻,《穆天子傳》的研究涉及文獻學、古文字學、文學史與歷史地理學等多個學科,具有深遠意義。基於本人過去在西周史的研究基礎,本研究欲對《穆天子傳》作一次通盤研究。首先,從古文字學與版本學的角度,重新檢閱其文本與文字隸定的正確性。其次,以年代明確的金文為時間標尺,分析《穆天子傳》包含的多時代成份。在這些基礎之上,本研究進一步從文學史的視角,探討《穆天子傳》的文獻性質。本研究希望超越真、偽二分的傳統框架,改由史實與想像互動的文學創作過程,解釋《穆天子傳》包含真實與想像成份的原因,進而探討戰國時期史學傳統蛻變出小說的背景與歷程,以及早期小說的作者、讀者、傳佈以及閱讀方式等議題。最後,本研究將以《穆天子傳》保存的地理訊息,探討戰國時期魏國的地理知識及其西北地理想像,為早期小說真偽雜糅的文本特質提供又一例證。   本研究涉及《穆天子傳》的文本基礎以及歷史意義,期許其對文獻、歷史、地理與文學史,均作出貢獻。

日本禪僧萬里集九的黃庭堅詩註《帳中香》研究

十一世紀的黃庭堅(1045-1105)號山谷,是型塑北宋詩歌與禪宗形態、內涵的代表。其《山谷內集》有詩逾七百首,是今人認知山谷詩學、禪學的核心文獻。該集歷來以難解而聞名,註家甚少。自古及今的華人世界內唯宋代任淵(1090?-1164?)曾遍註內集詩,又唯錢鍾書(1910-1998)選註的逾八十首為當代學界山谷詩註的典範。然而,十五世紀室町時代的日本禪僧萬里集九(1428-1507?)曾著書《帳中香》,以漢文遍註內集。萬里獨特的知識背景、闡釋立場與心態,使得該書在詮解旨趣異於華人註家的同時,尤在認識《山谷內集》中詩禪關係的問題上,深具洞察。然此書的存在及其重要性,長期未為學界所熟知。本計劃即將針對萬里集九及其《帳中香》展開首次全面研究。筆者尤其將通過檢視該書以禪解詩的獨特路徑,反思《山谷內集》固有的內典化傾向,進而重新認識黃庭堅所引領的迥異於唐代傳統的宋型詩禪新風。同時,本計劃亦將有助學界重新探索,近古以降的中日兩國在詩禪文化上曾有的互動與共性。

在香港看中國大陸電視劇:年輕人,身分認同與跨文化消費

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 (步步驚心), My Sunshine (何以笙簫默), 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?

香港的秘書史:嘉諾撒聖心商學書院的個案

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.
