A Multilingual Micro-Module Courseware for the Teaching of the Analects, The Heart Sutra, and the Zhuangzi (2020-22)

Principal Supervisor(s): Dr. CHENG Wai Pang Damian, Dr. HO Wai Ming, Dr. CHIU Chu Lee Julie (retired in 2021)

Based on the three explainer animation clips developed with the support of MMCDG 2016-17, we have planned to develop two new animation clips for Zhuangzi, another classic in the syllabus of In Dialogue with Humanity, a GEF course compulsory for all undergraduate students. The new animation clips will be provided with Cantonese, Putonghua, and English voice-over (VO). For the three existing explainer clips, we planned to add Putonghua and English VO. Both local and non-local students can benefit from the developed explainer animations. Through facilitating non-local students’ learning of Eastern, especially Chinese philosophy, such as Confucius, Zhuangzi, and Buddhist thoughts, the project team makes its own contribution to the internationalization of the curriculum.
