Presentation 2

Pedagogical and Professional Learning in Case-based Approach to Blending Learning
This presentation is based on a faculty-level TDG project aiming to (a) explore and examine innovative blended learning (BL) pedagogies that effectively integrate case-based learning to enhance student engagement and learning of pre-service teachers, as well as (b) build professional capacity of BL in higher education settings. Research on BL focuses mostly on student learning, having limited understanding of pedagogical practices for professional development. The presentation is intended to fill this gap by sharing new knowledge related to pedagogical and professional learning from the above-mentioned project.

Speakers: Dr. LEE Tai Hoi Theodore and Dr. YUEN Wai Kwan Gail
Dr. LEE Tai Hoi Theodore and Dr. YUEN Wai Kwan Gail work in the Department of Education Policy and Leadership. Both have collaborated on a number of projects to develop contextualized case materials to facilitate conceptual understanding among pre-service teachers and investigate the use of case materials along with pedagogically sound BL strategies. Both are interested in finding out the pedagogical value beyond the usual technological orientation of BL.
