通識午餐聚會 GE Lunch Seminar

通識教育與學生成長
General Education and Student Growth

簡介

通識教育程是香港中文大學本科生的必修課程,學生有不同的學術背景,如何教授通識科是教師的一大考驗;人文與理工類通識科有何效能?教師在設計課程時又有什麼需要注意,在傳遞知識之餘,又如何能幫學生成長?

是次通識午餐聚會,我們邀得梁卓恒博士和劉智軒博士擔任講者。梁卓恒博士將分享講授大學通識教育基礎課程UGFH1000「與人文對話」及新亞書院通識課GENA1113「學生為本的教學與研討」的經驗,探討人文與社會議題具有的通識教育效能,並分享兩套關於研討課的教學策略,討論通識教育如何有助學生成長。劉智軒博士則會與我們分享教授理工科類通識科的教學經驗。面對數學難題,部分學生會焦慮或恐懼,他們或曾在數學方面感到沮喪,因此缺乏信心解決數學問題。劉博士任教的UGEB2530「博奕和策略思想」讓學生從非技術層面出發,從簡單遊戲到現實生活中遇到的經濟、社會心理學、生物及商業問題,帶領學生認識博奕論,當中會以簡單的數學術語去學習著名的「納什均衡」(Nash equilibrium)。劉博士其中一個教學目的,是讓所有學生能以多種方法認識數學,並以數學方法去解決日常生活遇到的問題。

Brief Description

General Education (GE) is a compulsory study programme in the undergraduate curriculum of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. One of the challenges that all GE teachers faces is how to teach a course with students from different academic background. Besides, what are the influences in the GE courses of humanity- and science- field? Apart from imparting knowledge, what should teachers be aware when they are conducting GE courses to facilitate student growth?

In this GE lunch seminar, we have invited Dr. Leung Cheuk Hang and Dr. Lau Chi Hin to share their teaching experience in respect of student growth. Dr. Leung would introduce his experience in teaching UGFH1000 “In Dialogue with Humanity” and GENA1113 “Student-Oriented Teaching and Seminar”, with a focus on how GE elements are infused in humanity and social issues. Dr. Leung would also share two different teaching pedagogies when conducting discussion-based lessons, followed by a discussion on how GE will help to facilitate student growth. Meanwhile, Dr. Lau Chi Hin will share with us his experience in teaching GE courses related to the science fields. Some students are described as having mathematical anxiety or math phobia. These students usually have a lot of frustrating experience in mathematics and they are lack of confidence in solving mathematical problems. Dr. Lau’s GE course UGEB2530 “Games and Strategic Thinking” provides students with a non-technical exploration of game theory. It starts with very simple parlor games to more realistic problems in economics, social psychology, biology, and business. The celebrated “Nash equilibrium” are explained and studied in simple mathematical terms. One of his goals is to make all students understand that mathematics can be used in many different ways and everyone can use mathematics to solve problems related to daily life.
