ECE499 enables senior undergraduate students to conduct a research-based project on an early childhood education topic and report their findings and recommendations. The course requires students to put together knowledge domains from various courses in the programme to provide useful information to make decisions. Students have to critically reflect on their teaching practice and work closely with their supervisors to craft out a suitable project topic and carry out the project individually.
