簡介

「人生而自由,而無處不在枷鎖之中。」《社會契約論》的名句,震撼了多少人的心靈?鼓動了多少人奮起爭取?然而,盧梭提出「公共意志」,又被不少學者指為集體主義、極權政府的先驅。人的自由,是生而有之抑或等待政府賜予?在自由與極權之間,盧梭是搖擺不定,前後矛盾,還是有他深入獨特的理解?閱讀原典,是我們尋找答案的不二門徑。


讀過柏拉圖之後--通識教育基礎課程下的新學制學生

讀過柏拉圖之後--通識教育基礎課程下的新學制學生
After Plato: Students in the General Education Foundation (GEF) Programme

講者:趙茱莉博士 (大學通識教育部)、王永雄博士 (大學通識教育部)
Speaker: Dr. Julie Chiu (Office of University General Education), Dr. Wong Wing Hung (Office of University General Education)

簡介

讀過柏拉圖、孔子;牛頓、達爾文;黃宗羲、亞當‧史密斯之後,我們的學生會有甚麼轉變?由這個學年開始,所有新學制學生都將在小班教學的環境中,經歷科學與人文經典的洗禮。通識教育基礎課程包括「UGFH1000與人文對話」和「UGFN1000與自然對話」兩科,讓同學透過閱讀和討論經典,一同反省理想社會與美好人生,探索科學與知識世界。

兩個科目由2009年起試行,至今修讀兩科的學生已達一千人。任教老師在課堂內外的觀察,每學期末進行的學生焦點訪談,都讓我們更深入了解學生在這兩科的學習經驗及體會。是次聚會由負責開發這兩個科目的趙茱莉博士和王永雄博士主講。兩位將介紹課程的設計及目標,以及學生的反應與學習成果,期望讓不同部門和單位的同事,對課程有更深入的了解。

Brief Description

After reading the writings of Plato and Confucius, Newton and Darwin, Huang Zongxi and Adam Smith, what changes will our students undergo in their life and study? Starting from this academic year, all students admitted under the new curriculum will be immersed in the world of classics, pondering issues in the sciences and humanities in a small-class setting. The General Education Foundation (GEF) programme consists of two courses, “UGFH1000 In Dialogue with Humanity” and “UGFN1000 In Dialogue with Nature”, in which students, through the study of classics, together reflect on ideal society and good life, and explore the world of science and knowledge.

The two courses have been piloted since 2009. Up to now, as many as 1,000 students have completed the courses. To attain better understanding of students’ learning experience and outcomes in the GEF, we do not only rely on teachers’ observations in and out of the class, but have conducted focus-group interviews at the end of each semester. Dr. Julie Chiu and Dr. Wong Wing Hung, the two teachers in charge of development of the two courses, will give a presentation on the design and objectives of the two courses, and share observations and findings on students’ response and learning outcomes. Through such sharing, we hope that colleagues from different units and departments will better understand what their students have experienced and acquired, or will experience and acquire, in the GEF programme.
