Student Researchers/Research Personnel

With the aim of enhancing the scholarship of teaching and learning and pedagogic research in the higher education sector, the CPCE Centre for Pedagogic Research (CPCECPR) is committed to actively engaging  in research to discover, elucidate and evaluate new ideas, knowledge, and technologies that drive the future of society.   

When the research personnel and student researchers at CPCE engage in research, scholarly and creative activities, it fosters professional excellence in faculty important for the delivery of teaching and learning. The research component also broadens the educational experience of students when they apply new thought processes through studies and testing. In turn, they become better students who are best prepared for the challenges and opportunities ahead.  It rewards them professionally by getting their names out into the research community before they graduate.  Other benefits of participating in research include increasing self-confidencelearning to work independently, understanding how knowledge is constructedand setting a clearer career path. 

The CPCECPR encourages its members and research personnel to collaborate with student researchers on various research projects.  Students have good opportunities to take an active role in research projects, while at the same time learning proper investigative techniques.  Research personnel will mentor student researchers and assistants in various ways, including literature searching, data collection, data entry, and manuscript development.  It is believed the collective work between research personnel, student researchers and assistants will be a successful combination.  The CPCECPR eagers to orchestra the continuation of these research efforts to open the possibilities that research can reveal. 

The CPCECPR will engage research personnel and four types of student resources to foster research-related opportunities at CPCE. 

Four Types of Student Resources

Student Ambassador Students (currently in AD/HD program; or degree programme) with meaningful work opportunities to assist in promotion of CPCECPR events and activities and offer general event support.
Student Helper Students (currently in AD/HD program; or degree programme) assisting in administrative work and event design, and providing marketing support for CPCECPR related activities.
Student Assistant Students (currently in AD/HD program; or degree programme) will assist project supervisors to carry out research-related activities. 
Student Researcher Students (currently in degree programme) working on Integrated Study (IS) project aim to engage with their supervisors and transform their research idea into collective research outputs (e.g. conference paper, journal paper, book chapters, etc.). 

Centre for Pedagogic Research & Innovation Scheme (CPRIS)

The Centre for Pedagogic Research & Innovation Scheme (CPRIS) is a prestigious programme aimed at strengthening academic curiosity and enquiry-based learning among undergraduate students. It is our College’s objective to nurture the next generation of researchers and innovators. Under CPRIS, undergraduate students will be given the opportunities to undertake small-scale research projects under the guidance and supervision of academic staff who are strong in research.
