講者簡介 About the Speaker

崔佩怡博士(Dr. Apple Chui)於香港中文大學獲得環境科學碩士及生物學博士學位 ,並於2016年加入中大生命科學學院任職講師。崔博士自2008年開始, 在香港進行珊瑚研究,其研究興趣包括珊瑚成長初階段研究,幼苗入添量調查,及利用有性繁殖培育珊瑚等復育工作。崔博士多年來熱心參與香港海洋及珊瑚保育的公眾推廣和教育活動,當中包括為學校,綠色團體,政府部門等不同團體擔任專題講者,以及為香港珊瑚礁普查擔任隊伍科學家。崔博士透過不同公開演講累積經驗,善於通過穿插故事,深入淺出的介紹與講解科學知識。崔博士認為,教學不僅僅是知識的傳承,還應帶出態度和習慣上的改變。 近年,她推出了外展項目「珊瑚學院」,透過不同類型活動推廣香港水底世界,以培養及深化學生及大眾對海洋生態保育的意識及行為。

Dr. Apple Chui obtained her M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Science and Biology programs from CUHK, and has been with the School of Life Sciences as a lecturer since 2016. Since 2008, Dr. Chui has been studying corals in Hong Kong. Her research interests include coral larval ecology, coral recruitment dynamics and reef restoration using sexually reared corals. Apart from research, Dr. Chui has been actively engaged in public outreach and education activities on marine and coral conservation in Hong Kong. Throughout the years, she has been invited to speak at public seminars on marine and coral conservation for various organisations, including schools, green groups, and government departments. She has also been actively involved with Reef Check Hong Kong as team scientist. With practice and experience in public speaking, she has learnt to become a storyteller of science, making science easier to understand. Dr. Chui believes that teaching is not only about transmitting knowledge, but changing attitude and transforming habit. She has recently launched the outreach programme “Coral Academy”, to raise student and public’s awareness and inspire action in marine conservation through various activities.

簡介

同儕輔讀計劃 (PASS) 是一種被廣泛應用的同儕學習方法,能有效提升學生的學習。在中大的通識教育基礎課程兩個必修科目中,學生可自由選擇參與PASS,在每周一小時的共修中互相幫助。每節的PASS各有輔讀員帶領,他們都曾在該科目取得佳績,並了解同學在該科常遇到的困難。PASS 提供輕鬆、互相支援的學習環境,學生在當中整理學習所得,加強對關鍵概念的理解,同時建立有效的學習方法。

講者將在是次的通識午餐聚會分享PASS在通識教育基礎課程自2010年推行以來的實踐經驗,並以定期的評鑑為例,作出解說。講者亦將闡述PASS在通識教育基礎課程的發展,當中包括:輔讀員及管理人團隊的擴展、「資深輔讀員」的參與、PASS 作為閱讀工作坊的實踐,以及輔讀員如何在PASS應用蘇格拉底式反詰法。受邀輔讀員亦將在是次通識午餐聚會分享他們第一身的輔學經驗。講者最後將闡述PASS作為一種教學法,如何應用到不同的學科,以推廣有效的同儕學習。

Brief Description

Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS) is a widely adopted peer learning model with proved effectiveness in enhancing student learning. For the implementation in the two required courses under the General Education Foundation Programme (GEFP) at CUHK, PASS consists of weekly one-hour, voluntary group study sessions led by “PASS Leaders” who excelled in the specific course in the past and also understand the struggles typically faced by students enrolled in the course. In PASS, students work together in a relaxed and supportive learning environment to consolidate understanding, reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies.

In this GE lunch seminar, the speakers will share their experience of implementing PASS in the GEFP since its pilot stage in 2010, with the illustrations from its regular evaluation. The speakers will explain how PASS has been developed in GEFP, including the expansion of the PASS Leader team and the PASS Supervisor team, the involvement of “Senior PASS Leaders”, the implementation of PASS in the form of reading workshops, and the application of the Socratic method by PASS Leaders. Invited PASS Leaders will also share their first-hand experience of leading PASS sessions and facilitating students’ learning. This seminar will also illustrate how the general PASS model can be adapted to target courses to promote effective peer learning.
