簡介

環境教育除了提供有關環境的資訊,更旨在提高學生對環境議題的認識與覺察、加強學生批判性思考的能力,以及改變學生對自然環境的態度。這些環境教育的組成部份,有助培養學生對保護環境的承擔與責任,使他們實踐可持續發展的生活方式。

講者將在是次通識午餐聚會分享她如何在通識教育課程中進深探討環境教育。講者將以她任教的大學通識科目UGEB3630「海洋探秘」的課程設計為例,闡述她如何鞏固學生對海洋科學的認識之餘,擴展學生的好奇心,最終使學生領會海洋環境的價值,並在課堂完結後仍能實踐課堂的所思所學。

Brief Description

Environmental education is more than providing information about the environments. It should also have the component of increasing students’ awareness and knowledge of environmental issues, enhancing individuals’ critical-thinking, changing attitudes and developing a sense of responsibility to take action to conserve nature by living a sustainable life.

In this GE lunch seminar, the speaker would share with us how to go deeper with environmental education in General Education Programme. The speaker would share with us her course design in UGEB3630 Exploring the Enigmatic Oceans, in consolidating students’ understanding of ideas about marine science, extending curiosity, and finally, allowing students to appreciate the value of our marine environment and to take action beyond lectures.

簡介

作為地球在宇宙中的鄰居,火星自古以來已吸引人類的注意。在科幻小說和電影裏更有人類登陸火星探索,甚至是移居火星的情節。近年來大型望遠鏡的觀察,以及過去50多年多個火星探測器的發現,讓火星成為地球之外我們最深入認識的行星。另外隨著太空科技和火箭的發展,載人的火星之旅看來不再是遙不可及。火星會否成為人類在太陽系裏的另一個家?
