STEAM Education: Virtual Reality, Creative Coding, and Interactive Design
This TDG project implemented a set of STEAM initiatives to strengthen students’ competency in applying STEM skills for artistic solutions as well as to disseminate the STEAM practices to the wider community. Two undergraduate courses on the topics of Virtual Reality (VR) and Interactive Design were designed and offered, as well as a series of live coding workshops were implemented that allows the broader communities including school students, teachers, and the general public to participate. Through participating in the STEAM courses, students were able to develop their computational and design thinking, computer-mediated creativity, and other generic and STEAM related attributes.

Speaker: Dr CHENG Lee
Lee Cheng teaches both music and visual arts courses with teaching, research and artistic interests in technology-enhanced learning, digital arts, and sound art. He is active in initiating teaching and learning projects especially in STEAM education including the completed one presented in this seminar. He is now undergoing studies in Intellectual Property Law to further explore the interdisciplinarity among creative arts and other disciplines.


Presentation 2

Identifying Processes of Curriculum Alignment through Adopting Performance-based Assessment (PBA) in the Teaching and Learning of Literary Texts
While much research focuses on the curriculum and pedagogy of teaching literary texts, little attention has been paid to the importance of interweaving them with assessment. The research reported here is concerned with the use of Performance-based assessment as an integral part of teaching and learning literary texts in an ESL context. Using the principles of grounded theory, it traces different stages in the classroom assessment process and presents a working model for the analysis in teacher decision making in relation to curriculum alignment.

Speaker: Dr CHEUNG Anisa
Anisa Cheung is currently a lecturer in the Department of English Language Education, The Education University of Hong Kong. She has completed her doctoral studies at The University of Hong Kong, where she also obtained her Master of Education in English Language Studies and Bachelor of Arts & Bachelor of Education in Language Education (English).
