簡介

批判思維對學生是否很重要?大家提供的課程能有效提升學生的高階思考能力嗎?「敘說質性評核」研究小組由「通識教育基礎課程」的老師組成,目的為探究中大本科生回應開放議題的思考模式。小組採用Wolcott-Lynch的評核方法,分析通識教育基礎課程兩個「對話」科的期終論文,以五階分類和文字敘說方式,評鑑學生展現的思考能力。結果發現,約八成學生的思考模式可歸類為「困惑搜證型」或「偏頗定論型」;部份論文題目的設計局限了學生可發揮的思考水平;老師在參與研究的同時,也檢視了對學生的要求和改善了論題的設計。

是次研討會將報告研究所得,概述學生運用高階思考的特質,及其與學科整體表現的關聯;會上將分享具代表性的老師文字敘說和相關的學生論文選段。研討會也會介紹一個相關的延伸教學活動,其目的為探究學生如何應對具爭議性的科學議題。初步結果顯示,學生辨識議題「不確性」的能力較弱,但若老師運用適當的教學設計,利用「搭棚式誘導題」,鼓勵同儕協作,能夠提升學生高階思維的表現。該研究部份內容已在Teaching and Learning Innovation Expo 2017發表,詳情可參閱https://www.elite.cuhk.edu.hk/expo2017-papers

Brief Description

Is the ability to think critically important to students? How effectively do our courses help them develop high-level thinking? The Narrative Qualitative Assessment (NQA) research was conducted by teachers of the General Education Foundation Programme (GEFP), aimed to examine CU undergraduates’ thinking patterns when addressing open-ended problems. Applying the Wolcott-Lynch Model to selected term papers of the two “Dialogue” courses under GEFP, the team assessed students’ thinking performance by narrative description as well as categorization. It was found that some 80% of the students were “Confused Fact Finders” or “Biased Jumpers.” Students’ performance patterns seemed in a way pre-determined by the question design. Participating teachers gained new understanding of student learning and a chance to review what they expect of students and how they may redesign the questions.

The seminar will begin with findings on the characteristics of students’ high-order thinking, and their correlation with students’ overall performance in the “Dialogue” courses. Illuminating excerpts from teacher narratives and student writings will be shared. This will be followed by a look at an extended project, which studied how NQA-inspired question design may help students respond sensibly to a science-related controversial issue. Preliminary findings show that students were weak in identifying “uncertainties”; their performance could be enhanced or maximized by the use of appropriate “scaffolding questions,” and by engaging them in peer collaboration. Some key features of the project were reported in "Teaching and Learning Innovation Expo 2017" and can be downloaded from https://www.elite.cuhk.edu.hk/expo2017-papers.

講者簡介

趙茱莉博士(通識教育基礎課程署理主任)、林吐金博士(通識教育基礎課程老師)和彭金滿博士(通識教育基礎課程老師)皆任職大學通識教育部,為通識教育基礎課程「敘說質性評核」 (Narrative Qualitative Assessment)研究小組核心成員。小組自2014年開始,透過敘說(narrative)方式評核中大本科生的高階思考模式,分析學生的學習能力特徵,從而設計合適的學習活動,提高學生的學習成果。

Speakers' Bio

Dr CHIU Chu Lee Julie, Deputy Director of GEFP, and Dr LAM To Kam and Dr PANG Kam Moon, teachers of GEFP in the Office of University General Education, are core members of the Narrative Qualitative Assessment research team of GEFP. Since 2014, the team has been dedicated to qualitatively accessing the high-level thinking of CUHK undergraduates adopting a narrative approach and to analyzing their learning patterns so as to inform design of effective teaching and learning activities and hence to enhance student attainment of GEFP’s intended learning outcomes.

簡介 Brief Description

悲劇之於俗世,一般人是避之則吉。焉知於古代西方,希臘人對悲劇卻甘之如飴。就有關議題,尼釆論悲劇的「誕生」之論點固膾炙人口,但尼采此外其實還言及希臘悲劇的「死亡」,甚至其「再生」!其所指者何?我們對尼釆這一說法應如何解讀?要回答這些問題,我們或可循既充滿矛盾,但又最能概括人生的「哀樂」二字稍予探求。
