Koon Lin Wong
One of Wong Koon ‘Linnie’ Lin’s research interests is school leadership for civic learning. Linnie developed a two-level conceptual model of the effects of school leadership on civic teaching that is used to understand how principals negotiate the political context surrounding civic education and how these practices influence the civic teaching environment in schools. The ultimate goal is to identify the kinds of citizenship education that enable students to understand different perspectives and build a mutually respectful society. Linnie has participated in various research projects over the past ten years (such as participatory citizenship, applied learning, curriculum reform, work-based learning, Hong Kong refugee, teachers’ perceptions of citizenship education and school leadership for civic learning) and has been involved in international projects (such as research undertaken on a UNESCO project on out of school children, comparison of higher education study for Asia-Pacific region students, teacher preparation programmes in Mainland, China). She has served as a reviewer of international and local academic journals.
