簡介 Brief Description

全球氣溫過去三年連續破歷史最高紀錄,全球暖化的事實和人為成因毋庸置疑。雖然颶風卡特里娜和桑迪的可怕記憶逐漸淡忘,但是颱風天鴿的威力令我們思考下一個颱風溫黛是否和何時再蹂躪香港,特別是隨著越來越多的科學證據證明全球暖化將導致極端天氣及其產生的水文氣象災害更為頻繁和嚴重,因此,討論氣候變化的最新科學發現及其在全球、區域和地方層面的自然災害影響甚為及時和必要。本講座將首先回顧過去十多年來世界各地發生的巨大自然災害事件,並同時強調諸如颶風/颱風、風暴潮和洪水等水文氣象災害的普遍性。然後,通過討論氣候變化下自然災害對人類社會的破壞,從而揭示脆弱性和反彈性隨著人口增加、經濟發展和技術進步的演變。在香港的區域和本地層面,本講座將通過探討颱風、風暴潮和洪水災害,分析氣候變化的潛在威脅,並從減緩和適應對策、基礎建設和社會意識等方面評估如果一旦「溫黛」式的超級颱風襲港,我們是否已經作好了準備。最後,本講座將呼籲社會各持份者應通力合作和及早行動,共同對付全球暖化和應對巨大災害的風險和威脅。

簡介

為開展討論及推行果效為本的評核模式,學能提升研究中心主任秦家慧教授獲邀主持是次通識午餐聚會,就成績等級描述的製訂作分享。講者將簡介大學引用果效為本教學法及標準參照評核的背景和脈絡,並就不同類型的課業,解說製訂相應成績等級描述時的考量。講者將援引學能提升研究中心的成績等級描述範例,以及一些通識老師現正或行將採用的成績等級描述作解說。各個教學單位及書院的老師及行政同事均歡迎出席是次的通識午餐聚會,參與討論。

Brief Description

To start off the discussion and the process, the Director of the Centre for Learning Enhancement And Research (CLEAR) is invited to conduct this GE lunch seminar on devising grade descriptors for the implementation of the OBA to assessment.  Apart from outlining the general background and context of OBA and criterion-referencing at CUHK, the various factors to be considered in devising suitable grade descriptors for different types of assessment components will be discussed. Reference will be made to the sample grade descriptors put up by CLEAR, as well as to some examples of grade descriptors already adopted or to be adopted by some GE teachers. Teachers and staff members of the teaching departments/units and of the Colleges are most welcome to attend this seminar and join the discussion.

背景

配合大學教務會2016年12月有關實施新修訂的大學評核政策之議決,大學各科系須自2017/18學年起全面推行果效為本(Outcome-based Approach, OBA) 的評核模式,伴隨而來的措施,包括在所有科目中引用標準參照及成績等級描述。

教務會通識教育委員會考慮到全面推行標準參照及成績等級描述可能面臨的困難,遂議決於2017/18學年採用標準參照及常模參照並行的評核模式作為過渡安排。近日大學通識教育部已請求各教學單位及書院同仁為現有的通識科目訂立成績等級描述,為邁向全面落實標準參照評核踏出一步。

Background

In line with the revised University Assessment Policy approved by the Senate in December 2016 for implementation with effect from 2017-18, the outcome-based approach (OBA), accompanied by criterion-referencing and grade descriptors, shall be in place for course assessment across the University from the 2017-18 academic year.

The Senate Committee on General Education (SCGE) reckons that full implementation of criterion-referencing and grade descriptors at once would be difficult and thus supports that a mixed model of criterion-referencing and norm-referencing would be adopted during the interim year of 2017-18. To pave the way for full implementation of criterion-referencing in General Education (GE), teaching units and Colleges are recently invited to develop grade descriptors for their existing GE courses.
