Starting from 2004, all University General Education (University GE) courses have been categorized into Four 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, more than 300 University GE courses are offered. In the 2019/20 academic year, 367 classes of University GE courses were conducted, and more than 16,000 students enrolled.

This seminar targets at departments and teachers interested in proposing new University GE courses or in revising existing ones for implementation from 2021/22 academic year. We will 1) introduce the design of the University GE programme as a whole, 2) go through the procedures and criteria of University GE course approval, 3) highlight and conduct a concise demonstration of the GE Course Proposal and Inventory System (GECPI), a web-based system for the submission of University GE Course Proposals and the inventory of University GE course materials, and 4) briefly discuss the University GE course review and archive arrangements.
