    This study investigates the perceptions of teaching competency in multicultural classrooms held by 421 teachers at 16 schools in Hong Kong. The aims of the study are (a) to use confirmatory factor analysis to validate a culturally appropriate version of the Multicultural Teaching Competency Scale (MTCS), (b) to assess three types of multicultural-teaching competency, and (c) to provide recommendations for teacher-education institutes and policy makers on developing effective training in multicultural education. The results indicate that a tripartite model assessing skills, knowledge, and relationships, the core features of multicultural-teaching competency as assessed by the MTCS from a Hong Kong sample. The teachers all identified multicultural-teaching relationships as the most important component of multicultural-teaching competency. Future researchers should examine the concurrent validity of the MTCS and the cultural contexts of multicultural-teaching relationships. Recommendations are also made for incorporating the Confucian beliefs of fairness, justice, and equity into multicultural classroom. Copyright © 2020 Edith Cowan University. All rights reserved.

    2. The green school award in Hong Kong: Development and impact in the school sector

    The Hong Kong Green School Award (HKGSA) is a school award scheme hosted by the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC) to encourage schools to promote environmental awareness and for students to develop an environmentally-friendly lifestyle. Since its inception in 2000, the HKGSA has undergone several phases of development. Between 2000 to 2008 it took the form of a competition with 3 winning schools and 10 merit schools After an initial review in 2005, it was decided to change the 8th HKGSA from a competition format to a benchmarking process. The successfully accredited schools were given the title of Green School once they fulfilled certain requirements. Another major reform took place in the 12th HKGSA in 2013 to allow flexibility for schools to satisfy the requirements in phases by completing the accreditation to attain the gold award over a period of 3 years, the introduction of facilitators to act as mentors and the enforcing of a maximum validity period for the accreditation. This structure mirrored the sustainable schools program in Victoria, Australia. HKGSA has become a well-received accreditation scheme which can also act as a driving force to promote education for sustainable development in the school sector which in 2020 will be subsumed under the Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence (HKAEE). This chapter describes the development of this initiative in Hong Kong, its framework, implementation, impact and future. Copyright © 2020 Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

    當前,在學校教育中環境教育日益受到重視。環境教育旨在讓學生認識環境、在環境中學習、關心環境。香港的《學校環境教育指引》確定了學校環境教育的目標,學校的正規課程和非正規課程均在環境教育中扮演重要角色。澳門教育司成人署積極組織各種環境教育活動,澳門教師對推行學校環境教育的目標和方向表示同意。進一步推動環境教育,應該強化持續發展的概念,在課程與教學上處理好地方環境教育與國情環境教育的關係,加強港澳地區與國內外同行的交流。 Copyright © 1997 首都師範大學學報編輯部.

    5. Do university residential experiences contribute to holistic education?
    Document Type: Journal Articles
    Year published: 2019
    Publisher: Routledge
    Can residential experiences help undergraduates develop holistic competencies? To answer this question, a study was conducted based on the insights of 211 residents in Hong Kong. Deductive and inductive content analyses were respectively used to examine residence life outcomes, particularly in holistic competencies, and to categorise the types of residential experiences deemed to be effective for these outcomes. Results revealed that participation in hall activities led to the development of residence life outcomes, including justice, humanity, wisdom, courage, transcendence, and wellbeing. Furthermore, planning/organising hall activities greatly improved students' sense of justice while interpersonal dynamics facilitated the improvement of humanity only. The analyses indicated that students without specific engagement in hall activities were also able to develop temperance, particularly in self-regulation. Recommendations are suggested based on the analyses. It is hoped that this study might help inform policy-making processes to provide better residential environment that is beneficial to student holistic development.

    “新農村學習型學校社區建設工程”是一項由政府、大學與非政府組織、學校與社區、城市與農村共同參與的大型夥伴協作項目。該項目的實施採用了一種演化漸進的取向,參與各方對目標的詮釋各有側重。從變革實施的“忠實觀”和“調適觀”兩種觀點來看,該項目取得了一定的成效。今後同類項目的實施可考慮在學校領導、社會參與及評價方法等方面做出改進。 "The Construction of New Village Learning School and Community" is a large-scale project which involves the partnership between local government, a local university and a non-government organization from Hong Kong, the school and the community, the city and the village. The implementation of this project is featured by an evolutionary orientation allowing local adaptation. Participants of various parties have different emphases about the goals of this project. From the two perspectives of change implementation, i.e., fidelity and adaptation, this project brings a lot of changes to local schools and communities. In future, the school leadership, social participation and evaluation strategies could be improved to facilitate the implementation of similar projects. Copyright © 2010 西北師範大學.

    學校改進的研究與實踐均指出,院校協作扮演舉足輕重的角色。院校協作項目常涉及眾多項目學校,加強項目學校之間以及項目學校與大學之間的聯繫,是院校協作項目能夠持續發展的重要條件。本研究以香港優質學校改進計劃所舉辦的「聯校教師專業發展日」為個案研究對象,借助「實踐共同體」的理論視角,從理念層面、人際層面、實踐層面,分析「聯校教師專業發展日」這一實踐活動對於院校協作項目中建設實踐共同體的作用。Improving the quality of education through university-school collaboration carries strong theoretical and practical significance for the area of school improvement. A university-school project always involves many project schools. Endeavors in uniting these project schools are important conditions for the sustaining of school improvement project. The project under investigation in this study is Joint School Staff Development Day (JSSDD), a big event of the Quality School Improvement Project (QSIP) of Hong Kong. Through the lens of communities of practice (Cops), this study aims to explore the role of JSSDD to the construction of Cops for QSIP from three perspectives, namely domain, community, and practice.

    課本是教育系統中的重要環節,也是重要的教學內容、系統知識的組織、課程與教學間的連結。然而,香港對課本的探討仍然不足,課本的品質亦有待提升。本文嘗試評析教育局在香港課本編審機制中的作用。全文主要分為兩部分,首先會探討教育局在課本編審機制中的作用,然後提出加強教育局作用的建議。本文作者認為,教育局在課本編選機制中扮演非常重要的角色;然而,除維持現有角色外,教育局也應與其他相關的組織配合以及統籌與課本有關事宜,進行更多的課本研究,以及研究優化編審課本的機制。Textbooks, crucial in educational systems, consist of essential teaching materials and represent the organization of systematic knowledge and the bringing together of curriculum and teaching. Hong Kong, however, needs to carry out more research of textbook and to improve the quality of textbooks. This article discusses the roles of the Education Bureau in textbook editing and selection mechanism and suggests ways to enhance those roles. The authors confirm that the Education Bureau plays crucial roles in the textbook mechanism. We suggest, however, that in addition to its present roles, the Education Bureau should cooperate with other relevant organizations to coordinate textbook affairs, conduct more textbook research, and strive to improve the textbook mechanism.
