    2. National identity and teaching: Hong Kong teachers' perception on national identity and national education
    Document Type: Conference Papers
    Conference: 21st Annual Children’s Identity and Citizenship European Association Conference (CiCea 2019): Europe at a Crossroads: Rights, Values and Identity (2019: Charles University, Karolinum, Czech)
    This paper gives some preliminary analysis on the relationships between perceptions of national identity and national education by using quantitative data. A pilot-tested questionnaire has been sent to all civic education team teachers in Hong Kong secondary schools in 2018. Through quantitative analysis, it is found that some possible types of national education are adopted by teachers. The qualitative interviews with some teachers also reveal a diversified range of teaching methods on national education. All these findings can, hopefully, contribute to the existing literature. This study shall be useful for anyone interested in understanding how teachers perceive their national identity and national education in this post-materialistic and globalized world.

    我國於2019年提出《粵港澳大灣區發展規劃綱要》(簡稱《規劃綱要》)方案,提出九個城市以及香港和澳門特別行政區作為區域發展的核心引擎,並藉著這些核心城市和港澳地區的發展,帶動周邊城市和區域的發展。從區域教育發展以及國際趨勢等角度來看,粵港澳大灣區的人才發展宜具有國家及區域意識及國際視野,宜注重科技與人文雙重取向;鼓勵粵港澳學校合作交流,共建院校研究基地;樹立多元化灣區教育合作理念,在科研、教育、經濟發展和人才培養等方面達至協同共贏效果。 China put forward the "Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area" in 2019, proposing nine cities and Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions as the core engines for regional development, promoting as well the growth of the surrounding cities and regions. Through the analysis of regional education development and international trends, this paper discusses personnel training in the Greater Bay Area. The development of talents in this Area should have both a national and regional awareness and an international perspective, and be oriented towards both humanities and science and technology. Cooperation and exchanges between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao schools should be encouraged, so as to build joint research centers among institutions. A diversified concept of educational cooperation should be established to achieve win-win results in scientific research, education, economic development and personnel training.

    6. Understanding university-based teacher educators' boundary crossing experiences: Voices from Hong Kong
    Document Type: Journal Articles
    Year published: 2020
    Publisher: Routledge
    This qualitative multi-case study explores a group of university-based language teacher educators' boundary crossing experiences in Hong Kong. Informed by a conceptual framework on boundary crossing and drawing on data from in-depth interviews and field observations, the findings reveal the opportunities and challenges embedded in teacher educators' boundary crossing between university and schools, between the teacher education and academic community, and between local and external contexts. The study contributes new knowledge to our understanding of teacher educators' boundary crossing through two different forms, i.e., horizontal and hierarchical, as they navigate sociocultural differences between various communities. The paper concludes with practical implications on how to promote teacher educators' continuing development in university settings.

    7. Observed teaching behaviour in secondary education across six countries: Measurement invariance and indication of cross-national variations
    Document Type: Journal Articles
    Year published: 2020
    Publisher: Routledge
    Effective teaching is a key factor in educational effectiveness and improvement. To facilitate the knowledge exchange regarding effective teaching in secondary education internationally, there has been a growing interest in using classroom observation measures. However, little is known regarding the comparability of observation measures across various national contexts (measurement invariance). Consequently, comparing effective teaching behaviour across contexts is compromised by issues of construct and measurement equivalence. In the present study, we investigated measurement invariance of the International Comparative Analysis of Learning and Teaching (ICALT) for measuring teaching behaviour across various national contexts including the Netherlands, South Korea, South Africa, Indonesia, Hong Kong-China, and Pakistan. Results showed that ICALT indicates full strict invariance in four out of the six countries, which provides a possibility to compare teaching behaviour in the Netherlands, South Korea, South Africa, and Indonesia. South Korea indicated the highest quality of teaching behaviour, while Indonesia indicated the lowest. Copyright © 2020 The Author(s).

    8. Influence of professional cultures and principal leadership effects on early-career teacher leadership development in Hong Kong schools
    Document Type: Journal Articles
    Year published: 2020
    Publisher: Routledge
    This paper aims to extend our understanding of the influence of school professional cultures and principal leadership effects on early-career teacher leadership aspiration, learning and development in the evolving hybrid of Western and Confucian cultures of Hong Kong. What are early-career teachers’ aspirations of leadership development in different professional cultures of the school? How do the principal leadership effects facilitate or hinder teacher leadership development in the professional culture? A multiple case study approach was adopted. Findings show that positive professional culture built by professional relationships between the principals and teachers and among teachers can stimulate early-career teacher leadership aspiration. The principal leadership effects can facilitate and hinder professional collaboration and support for the teacher leadership development in the Chinese school hierarchy of Hong Kong. This study contributes to unveiling in-depth understandings of teacher leadership aspiration, learning and development as the socially constructed experiences of the teachers in contrast to the professional culture highlighted in the school document. Insights gained from the study can inform the in-school progression of teacher leadership development in the school hierarchy. Implications for school achievement through continuing professional development are also highlighted. Copyright © 2020 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

    9. Developing and evaluating a flipped corpus-aided English pronunciation teaching approach for pre-service teachers in Hong Kong
    Document Type: Journal Articles
    Year published: 2020
    Publisher: Routledge
    This study aimed to develop a corpus-aided pronunciation teacher-training programme and examine the effectiveness of a corpus-aided pronunciation teaching approach in English classrooms in Hong Kong. A workshop was conducted for 86 participants to introduce several English learner corpora. After the workshop, eight volunteer participants, pre-service teachers in Hong Kong, were paired off, entered into a seven-stage corpus-aided pronunciation teacher programme and attended interviews. One pair was selected to give a trial lesson, and 13 primary school students were invited to evaluate this lesson. The results revealed that the training provided sufficient knowledge about corpus-aided pronunciation teaching and task design. The pre-service teachers expressed a strong willingness to use corpus data as examples to raise students' awareness of commonly mispronounced sounds. They agreed that the flipped instruction component was effective. Of the 13 primary school students, 83.33% agreed that they learned how to pronounce the target sounds correctly, and 75% were able to identify their mispronounced sounds via the corpus-aided teaching method. The findings will not only provide pre-service teachers with examples of corpus-aided pronunciation lesson plans and materials but also contribute to integrating the flipped classroom approach into teacher education programmes.
