How Research Practice Informs Teaching Pedagogy: From Passive Listening to Ways of Knowing By Dr. Kuo Frank YU

Workshop Series

Date:   10 November 2015, Tuesday
Time: 12:00 - 13:30
Venue:  Room 1314 (AC2)


In this teaching and learning workshop, we will explain the research-teaching link from the practice perspective that illustrates research-oriented teaching pedagogy; identifies barriers to linking research in teaching; and exemplifies some methods to link via sample successful discipline-based teaching methods in humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. In particular, we will investigate and propose how a research-based pedagogical approach can enhance students’ critical and reflexive thinking ability; train teachers and students to become informed consumers of research and research’s impact on professional practice; develop awareness of scholarship as an ”open ended inquiry” bounded in the context of knowledge-generation process; blur interdisciplinary boundaries via reflecting in and on action of research and teaching as well as discovering new connections; lastly, bridge practice-scholarship gaps through learning by doing.
