Proposing or Revising a University General Education Course

Speaker: Dr. Wong Wing Hung (Associate Director, Office of University General Education)

Language: English

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 support from over 40 teaching units, 256 UGE courses are offered by the University of General Education. In the 2015/16 academic year, 312 classes of UGE courses were conducted, 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 2017/18 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.
