A randomised controlled trial study investigating the effectiveness of parent training on promoting physical activity in children with autism spectrum disorder

A randomised controlled trial study investigating the effectiveness of parent training on promoting physical activity in children with autism spectrum disorder

  • Project Leader
  • Dr YU, Chung Wah Clare (Department of Health and Physical Education) 
  • Description
  • The proposed work will provide unique data on the impact of parent involvement in an exercise training programme on physical and psychological well-being in children with ASD, as well as parenting stress and efficacy, with important implications on the health promotion in children of ASD and their families.

A self-regulated and personalised vocabulary learning approach mediated by mobile technologies for university students

A self-regulated and personalised vocabulary learning approach mediated by mobile technologies for university students

  • Project Leader
  • Dr MA, Qing (Department of Linguistics and Modern Language Studies) 
  • Description
  • This proposed research will address these issues by adding two key components, vocabulary pedagogy and enhanced personalisation, to an existing self-regulation model (Zimmerman, 2011).

A Structural Understanding of Formative Assessment: Predictor, Intention, and Practice

A Structural Understanding of Formative Assessment: Predictor, Intention, and Practice

  • Project Leader
  • Dr YAN, Zi (Department of Curriculum and Instruction) 
  • Description
  • The proposed study will explore teachers’ intentions and practices regarding formative assessment as well as the factors that influence their intentions and practices. Personal factors—such as attitudes, subjective norms, and self-efficacy, as specified in the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) (Ajzen, 1991)—and contextual factors will be used as predictors.

A study of a Visual Culture Art Education model for promoting creativity and critical thinking skills in the senior high school context

A study of a Visual Culture Art Education model for promoting creativity and critical thinking skills in the senior high school context

  • Project Leader
  • Dr LAU, Chung Yim (Department of Cultural and Creative Arts) 
  • Description
  • We do not know how effective VCAE is and teachers do not know how to use VCAE to teach. A VCAE model is necessary for knowledge transfer, but one has not yet been established. By developing such a model the proposed study will bridge the gap between theory and practice. It will also help to bridge the gaps between students’ learning, their everyday socio-cultural life and the real world.

An analysis of the role of Hong Kong school principals in supporting the teaching of civic education

An analysis of the role of Hong Kong school principals in supporting the teaching of civic education

  • Project Leader
  • Dr WONG, Koon Lin (Department of Education Policy and Leadership) 
  • Description
  • Kennedy, Li and Chan (2015) and Kennedy and Li (2017) have shown that school-level factors (particularly principals’ roles) can influence students’ civic learning, although the results are somewhat mixed, clearly this requires further investigation. This study extends this line of research by examining how principals create school civic teaching environments and how these influence teachers in their roles as civic educators.
