Data-Driven In-class Activities for Chinese History Pedagogy

1. Abstract

My presentation focuses on the redesigning of classroom activities in undergraduate learning for Chinese history; it does so by examining and reflecting on the effectiveness of the in-class activities and assignments that I have devised and adopted for relevant courses. These include online annotation exercises of Classical Chinese texts with Hypothesis and CTEXT, extraction of biographical entries from the China Biographical Database, mapping exercises on WorldMap, and digital metrical analysis of classical poetry on the Souyun platform.
