A Chinese Perspective on Teaching and Learning. Routledge Series on Schools and Schooling in Asia
Eng, Betty C., Ed.
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
Bringing together educators from a range of backgrounds--psychology, sociology, social work, counseling, and teaching--this volume shows how Asian cultural values and beliefs can provide a lens through which to understand and envision how curriculum and pedagogy can be creatively adapted, not only in a local Chinese classroom context, but in a global context as well. This book begins with a foreword by William Ayers and an introduction by Betty C. Eng. This book is divided into three parts. Part I, Culture of the Classroom, contains the following: (2) Teaching About Filial Piety and Learning from Its Antecedents (Chau-kiu Cheung and Alex Yui-huen Kwan); (3) The Applicability of Peer Learning and Peer Assessment in Hong Kong: A Cultural Perspective (Raymond Wai-man Chan and Alice M. L. Chong); and (4) Turning Conflict into Collaboration (Kathy Kam Ping Leung). Part II, Contextualizing the Curriculum, contains the following: (5) Teaching Group Counseling in Hong Kong: The Experience of a Teaching Excellence Award Winner (T. Wing Lo); (6) Subjective Process and Outcome Evaluation of a Social Work Methods Course: Findings Based on the Perspective of the Students (Tak-yan Lee, Esther O. W. Chow and Joannes M. W. Lee); (7) Teaching Sexual Diversity in Hong Kong: Challenging Homophobia (Diana Kan Kwok); and (8) Critical Self-Examination of Homophobia: A Sexual Diversity Teacher's Personal Journey (Yuen Chun and Louisa Chan). Part III, Learner and Learning: Expanding the Classroom, contains the following: (9) Implementing Volunteer Program to University Students in Hong Kong: Enhancing Volunteer Participation Through Service Matching and Organizational Support (E. Suk Ching Liu, Joseph Wu, T. Wing Lo and Anna N.N. Hui); and (10) Project X: The Project for Learning Excellence: A First-Year, Non-Credit Bearing, Department-Based, Co-Curricular Course for Students in Social Sciences (Katty P. Ho, Alice M. L. Chong, Stephanie Fung Yee Lai and Remus Kai Chun Kwok).
