Education scholar wins Quality Education Fund for research on children

教育學者獲優質教育基金撥款研究香港兒童的社交思考能力

Dr Kelly Ku, Assistant Professor of the Department of Education Studies, received a HK$444,700 grant from the Quality Education Fund for a project entitled: “Promoting Critical Social-Thinking Skills for Positive Interpersonal Well-Being among Hong Kong Lower-Primary School Students”. 
 
The project will implement and test empirically the effectiveness of an Interpersonal Cognitive Problem Solving training programme among six to eight years old Hong Kong children. The project aims to nurture in the future generation the “thinking child”, who shows concern for others’ feelings, considers alternative solutions to conflicts, reflects on the impact of one’s words and actions, and commits to building harmonious social environments. 
 
The project brings together researchers of Hong Kong and the United States, educational psychologists and school teachers. Dr Ku viewed the project as a great opportunity to further enhance HKBU’s mission of bridging research, practice and community engagement. 
 

 
教育學系助理教授顧伊麗博士獲優質教育基金資助港幣444,700元,進行一項名為「社交思考能力訓練:培育初小學生正向人際關係」的研究計劃。 
 
研究計劃將會推展及測試有關香港六至八歲兒童的人際認知思考培訓計劃的有效性,並期望可以培育下一代成為會自主思考的小孩,能夠關心他人的感受、面對衝突時能夠思考不同的解決方法、對他人言行作適當的反應,並立志建立一個和諧的社會環境。
 
顧博士表示,研究計劃集合了香港和美國的研究人員、教育心理學家及教師,並進一步加強浸大致力結合研究、實踐,並連繫社會的成果。
