The eTeaching Literacy Project (eTeachLit): Improving Students’ Learning Performance Through Empowering Teachers’ Digital Teaching Capacity

 

 

 
 
 
eTeachLit Project Summary

It has been observed that teaching staff, particularly newly recruited and inexperienced teachers, lack skills and competence in utilising eLearning technologies in their course development and classroom delivery of course contents. This would have a detrimental effect on the students’ learning and their performance. In the academic year 2019/2020, Tung Wah College (TWC) has launched the eTeachLit* Project, funded by QESS, to empower teachers' digital teaching capacity. This Project aims to address this important issue by implementing an “eTeaching” literacy intervention programme for empowering the eLearning capacity of teachers at TWC. The eTeachLit Project also aims to develop an “eTeaching” framework with materials produced to provide strategies and examples on the implementation of the latest eLearning technologies in curriculum design and course delivery.

* The eTeaching Literacy Project (eTeachLit): Improving Students’ Learning Performance Through Empowering Teachers’ Digital Teaching Capacity
(Project No. 08/QESS/2018)

 

 

eTechLit Project Objectives
 
  • The development of a “eTeaching” intervention programme for empowering teachers’ eLearning technologies adaptation capacity and skills in teritary education.
  • Enhancement of teachers’ “eTeaching” literacy through the implementation of the intervention programme.
  • Improvement of the students’ learning experience and performance.
 
A small group of full-time teachers of about 15% (n=15) of the total academic staff at the College will be randomly selected to join the Project. To evaluate the efficacy of the Programme, a pre-and-post intervention approach will be applied with teachers’ “eTeaching” literacy assessed prior to the commencement and after the completion of the programme. An instrument will be specifically designed, based on the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standard for Educators, for measuring the primary outcome of the Project.
 
It is anticipated that by the end of the Project, a framework of “eTeaching” literacy with emphasis on the adaptation of the latest education technologies will be produced; successful hands-on practical experience will be gained by teachers through the process of training and actual class delivery; and a repository of cases in the adaptation of the “eTeaching” framework in many different disciplines and courses of different nature will be generated. These cases will provide examples on how the latest eLearning technologies can be applied in different education settings.
