Presentation Presentation 1
Teaching and Learning of Chinese Philology: Research on Evaluating Chinese Major Students’ Knowledge and Competence of Classical Chinese in Hong Kong
by Dr. CHEUNG Lin Hong, CHL
(presented in Cantonese)Classical Chinese texts have long been regarded as indispensable sources in understanding and examining our ancient culture. The capability to comprehend basic classical texts is considered one of the requirements for Chinese major students. In recent years, although secondary schools and universities have already put much effort into teaching classical Chinese, the competence levels of reading classical Chinese among Chinese majors are still deteriorating. This project aims to provide suggestions and recommendations on the competence structures of classical Chinese for Chinese major students in the 21st century in Hong Kong.Presentation 2

by Dr. Irene CHENG Nga Yee, SES

The presentation highlights the learning process experienced by the students in a General Education Breadth course using Facebook community for on-going reflections of what they have experienced during the course delivery.

The presentation will conclude by examining students’ feedback on their blended learning experience using Facebook, through aligning with the course learning outcomes.
