Starting from 2004, all University General Education (UGE) courses have been categorized into 4 Areas:  Area A Chinese Cultural Heritage, Area B Nature, Science and Technology, Area C Society and Culture, and Area D Self and Humanity. With the supports from over 40 teaching departments, 248 UGE courses are offered by the University of General Education. In the 2013/14 academic year, over 290 classes of UGE courses were offered, and more than 15,000 students enrolled.
This seminar targets at departments and teachers interested in proposing new UGE courses or in revising existing ones in 2015/16 academic year. We will

  1. introduce the design of the UGE programme as a whole,
  2. go through the procedures and criteria of UGE course approval,
  3. introduce the GE Course Proposal and Inventory System (GECPI), which is a web system for the submission of UGE course proposals and the inventory of UGE course materials, and
  4. briefly discuss the UGE course review and archive arrangements.
