Promoting Student Groups for Korean International Students

A Project Prototype by Hee Ju

published on Oct 25, 2017

Previous studies imply that Korean students tend to lack balanced life between studies and extracurricular activities, which may be essential to their academic success and career preparation in the long run. The purpose of this project is to enhance opportunities for Korean students to get involved in student club activities by helping university student clubs recruit Korean international students. Learners will interview Korean native speakers to find out areas to meet the need of Korean students. They will create promotional videos for select student clubs and collaborate with student clubs and other campus organizations to widely distribute them to Korean international students. In the process, this project aims to develop students' career pathway knowledge and skills related to information technology and human service as well as enhancing their Korean language skills.

Preparing for the Project

Entry Event

Students watch a video from Youtube, illustrating a busy daily schedule of a Korean international student who could not even eat properly due to exams and class assignment. After watching the video, they respond to questions on a worksheet based on the video they have watched. 

Task Extension

Students compare/contrast their own daily schedule with the one from the video. 

UCLA Student Clubs

In case, students are not participating in a student club and don't know which one to contact, the instructor has provided a short list of student clubs that have contact information. 

Technology Tips

The list is based on the website information from Student Affairs Office. 

Launching the Project

Interview Questions

In a group, students design interview questions that they will ask in meeting with a leader of student club and Korean international students. Interview questions for a student club may be in English or Korean, depending on the nature of the club and language proficiency of the leader. Interview questions for Korean international students must be in Korean. 

Managing the Project

Guiding Instruction and Rubrics

The attached document includes important deadlines for interviews/interview results, script writing, and video production/presentation. In addtion, scoring rubrics for each component of project are introduced in the guide. As a follow-up, instructor sends out reminder of task deadlines via e-mail as well as in class. 

Assessment

Peer Feedback and Self-Reflection

After each group presents a promotional video, learners will assess the final product and provide comments based on the rubric. They will also reflect on their project process and outcome and share their ideas with the class. 

Formative Assessment: Interview Questions

As a formative assessment, students submit their questions to ask Korean native speakers using Google Doc. The instructor provides them with feedback on language, e.g., accuracy and clarity. Students then revise their questions and conduct interviews. 

Interviews

As a group, learners interview Korean native speakers in Korean and a student club leader in English. Each task is assessed according to the criteria of the rubric provided prior to the interviews. 

Technology Tips

Learners submit an audio file and summaries of interviews using Google Drive. Learners can choose to video-record their interviews with the consent of interviewees.  

They can use their smart phone or an audio/video recording tool from the course website. 

 

Script Writing

For one class session, students will discuss and write the outline of their promotional video with assistance of the instructor, when necessary. Outside of the classroom, they will complete the script and submit the 1st draft using Google Doc. The script will be assessed according to the criteria of the scoring rubric provided at the beginning of the project. The instructor will provide written feedback and scores using Google Doc. 

Technology Tips
