面對愈趨複雜的全球挑戰,大學似乎需要適時地檢視通識教育課程。作為大學策略計劃的一部分,中大通識 4.0 (GE4.0) 將會是怎樣的面貌?

Brief Description

From the founding of CUHK in 1963, General Education (GE) has been a cornerstone of the University’s undergraduate curriculum. Starting as a College-based programme, it grew into a University GE curriculum comprising seven study areas in the 1980s, before reaching its third and current incarnation in 2012, with two carefully crafted Foundation courses, selected modules in four areas, as well as College GE.

In the face of complex global challenges, a review of the CUHK GE curriculum seems timely. As a part of the University’s new strategic plan, what might CUHK GE 4.0 look like?

講座簡介 About the Talk

Is Food really Safe in the EU, and do consumers perceive it to be Safe?

The outbreaks of SARS and avian influenza, antimicrobial resistance and Bovine Spon-giform Encephalopathy (BSE) highlighted the need to mitigate emerging health risks using a One Health approach, as these are multifactorial diseases involving different disciplines and thus different perspectives.

During the 21st century, challenging global health threats have emerged, linked to zoonotic and (re)emerging infectious diseases (e.g. COVID-19, Ebola, MERS), climate change and environmental sustainability. These health threats are complex and cannot be solved by one sector alone. A comprehensive strategy and transdisciplinary collaboration on all aspects of health for people, animals and the environment is required, also referred to as the One Health approach.

As a medical doctor he worked shortly in a slum-area near Manila (the Philippines), and in 1997 he moved to the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome (IT), as project manager of an EU-project on communicable diseases. From 1998 to 2002 he worked in the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands, where he helped establish the European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (EARSS).
