開設或修訂大學通識科目
Proposing or Revising a University General Education Course

日期 Date : 2018-12-18 (星期二 Tuesday)
時間 Time:12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
地點 Venue: 香港中文大學許讓成樓 701, Hui Yeung Shing Huilding, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
講者 Speaker: 趙茱莉博士(大學通識教育部副主任)Dr. Chiu Chu Lee Julie (Associate Director, Office of University General Education)

簡介

自二零零四年起,大學通識科目分為四個範圍,分別為:範圍A 中華文化傳承、範圍B 自然、科學與科技、範圍C 社會與文化,以及範圍D 自我與人文。承蒙全校所有學院四十多個學系全力支持,現時大學通識教育部提供超過二百五十個大學通識科目。在2017/18學年,大學通識教育部一共開設了三百二十四班的大學通識學科,計有接近一萬五千學生修讀。

是次聚會特別為有意在2019/20學年增辦或修訂大學通識科目的學系及老師而設。會上我們將說明 1) 大學通識教育課程的設計理念,2) 大學通識科目審批的程序及準則,3) 提交大學通識科目建議書及庫存科目資料的網上平台 ——GE Course Proposal and Inventory System (GECPI)的操作方法,以及4) 大學通識科目檢討及資料保存的安排。

Brief Description

Starting from 2004, all University General Education (UGE) courses have been categorized into 4 Areas:  Area A Chinese Cultural Heritage, Area B Nature, Science and Technology, Area C Society and Culture, and Area D Self and Humanity. With the support from over 40 teaching units, more than 250 UGE courses are offered by the University of General Education. In the 2017/18 academic year, 324 classes of UGE courses were conducted, and about 15,000 students enrolled.
 
This seminar targets at departments and teachers interested in proposing new UGE courses or in revising existing ones in 2019/20 academic year. We will 1) introduce the design of the UGE programme as a whole, 2) go through the procedures and criteria of UGE course approval, 3) introduce the GE Course Proposal and Inventory System (GECPI), which is a web system for the submission of UGE Course Proposals and the inventory of UGE course materials, and 4) briefly discuss the UGE course review and archive arrangements.

*For more information of submission of proposals for introduction and revision of UGE courses in 2019-20, please visit our website: http://www5.cuhk.edu.hk/oge/index.php/en/teaching-a-learning/2011-07-04-07-54-58/proposing-new-courses-ge-course-proposal-a-inventory

任教生動而具學術挑戰的化學通識科目

Lunch Seminar 通識午餐聚會

任教生動而具學術挑戰的化學通識科目
Teaching Vivid and Academically-Challenging General Education Courses in Chemistry

日期 Date : 2018-11-26 (星期一 Monday)
時間 Time:12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
地點 Venue: 香港中文大學許讓成樓 701, Hui Yeung Shing Huilding, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
講者 Speaker: 黃暉博士(化學系)Dr. Wong Fai George (Department of Chemistry)

簡介

化學是研究分子操作的學科。生活週遭每一項的材料都離不開化學,舉例來說,化妝品、塑膠和殺蟲劑雖然表面看來截然不同,但它們都是石油製品。儘管化學在日常生活中很重要,但同學往往難以理解這個學科。這是因為我們不能單憑肉眼觀察原子,也難以直接觀察不同的化學反應如何改變週遭環境。講者將在是次通識午餐聚會,分享他的教學法,並重點解說他如何將化學變成同學易於觸摸和欣賞的學科。

Brief Description

Chemistry is the study of molecule manipulation.  It is about the study of matter and its properties. Matter around us is all related to chemistry. For instance, although cosmetics, plastics and pesticides look apparently different, they are all made from petroleum. Despite the importance of chemistry in life, the subject itself is regarded by most students as difficult.   It is because we cannot visualize atoms by the naked eyes and definitely we cannot appreciate chemical reactions which shape the environment around us. In this GE lunch seminar, the speaker would like to share his teaching methodology, with emphasis on how to make chemistry touchable and appreciable by the students.

講者簡介

黃暉博士是香港中文大學化學系講師。黃博士任教多個通識科目,包括:UGEB2380「生命化學」、UGEB2410「動感化學」以及GECC1131「大學修學指導:學生為本教學課程」。黃博士擅長闡述抽象概念,在他任教的科目中投放大量心力,聯繫化學知識與日常生活經驗。黃博士經常運用不同的教學工具,如動畫、影片、實驗模型以及遊戲,讓同學投入課堂,並激發他們對化學的欣賞。黃博士在教學以外積極參與教材的研發,亦是數項獲撥款的教學研究的首席研究員。黃博士近期的研究項目是開發一個交互式實驗室安全電子學習平台(LabSafe),透過虛擬現實,敘述式講課、動畫以及測驗來教授實驗室安全。

Speakers' Bio

Dr. Wong Fai George is a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Dr. Wong teaches several general education courses including UGEB2380 Chemistry of Life, UGEB2410 Chemistry in Action and GECC1131 Idea of a University: Student-oriented Teaching. Dr. Wong is good at expressing abstract ideas. In his courses, he makes great effort to link chemistry knowledge with everyday life experiences. He also uses different teaching aids, such as animations, videos, experiment models and games which aim at engaging students and stimulating their appreciation towards Chemistry. Besides teaching, Dr. Wong takes an active role in developing teaching materials. He is the principle investigator of several teaching-related projects receiving grants. His recent project is the development of an interactive laboratory safety e-Learning platform called LabSafe. It employs virtual reality, narrated lectures, animations and quizzes to teach laboratory safety.
