簡介

是甚麼讓我們可以無窮盡地發現新知識的呢?自十七世紀以來,科學發現的速度不斷增加,時至今日,「DNA:生命的秘密」已被發現並人人耳熟能詳,希格斯粒子幾乎已確定存在,而人類已能操控最微細的物質。在不久的將來,例如說,在一個世紀內,我們是否會走到知識窮盡的一日?在達爾文、居禮夫人、愛恩斯坦之後,站在今天的我們,還可以希望發現些甚麼呢?

晨興書院院長兼諾貝爾經濟學獎得主莫理斯教授將與我們分享這個他深感興趣的問題。

Brief Description

What makes new knowledge possible? With “DNA: the secret of life” discovered and read, the Higgs boson almost certainly identified, and matter manipulated at the smallest possible scale, will we soon -- in a century, say -- exhaust everything there is to know? The world has witnessed an accelerated rate of scientific discovery since the 17th century. Standing here and now, after Darwin, Curie and Einstein, how much more can we hope to discover?

Professor Sir James A. Mirrlees, Master of Morningside College and Nobel Laureate in economics sciences, will share with us his thoughts and insights on this intriguing topic.

Speaker: Prof. Pang Hai Shao (Associate Professor, School of Education, BIT)

簡介

通識教育作為人類美好的教育理想,在很多國家和地區引起了諸多關注。在中國大陸,通識教育不僅引發了教育理念變革,而且帶動了教育內容、人才培養模式乃至大學組織結構、管理制度的變革,各個大學的實踐探索精彩紛呈。是次聚會的講者龐海芍教授近年在中國大陸積極推動通識教育的發展,她將從國際比較的視野與我們分享通識教育在中國面臨的理念和實踐困境與出路。

Brief Description

As an education ideal, General Education has aroused high interest across different countries and regions. In mainland China, General Education has not only triggered changes in the education philosophy, but also contributed to reforms in various areas: from the teaching contents to the models of cultivating students, from the organizational structure of a university to its management model. Different universities have taken different paths in realizing these reforms. This seminar takes an international comparative perspective to examine the difficulties universities in China are facing and the possible way-outs.
