Pilot teaching

We have successfully completed our 5-week pilot teaching with the materials we produced using our alumni’s accounts of their current employment. Two groups and 15 students in total attended the pilot sessions. I will share some our observations and reflection.


  • limited time. We only had 75mins each week to the session which ideally would be two hours. That means we had to cut out some activities.
  • quality of the video clips.  Alumni used different recording devices, so the quality is not consistent.
  • Designing attractive materials. For the pilot study, we mainly used PPTs.

What’s next?

  • We are in the process of collecting feedback to evaluate our sessions
  • Based on the evaluation, we will adapt our materials
  • Work with Rob to design course material package
  • Submit a conference paper for BAAL 2018
