認識自己,這就是通識教育的目的。通識教育是痛苦的,因為它要求我們誠實面對自己的本相;但通識老師絕不是旁觀者,他更要先踏出第一步,帶領學生一起離開洞穴,儘管他們不一定願意。

王永雄博士畢業於香港中文大學,主修物理學,獲理學士、哲學碩士及哲學博士學位。王博士對神學有濃厚興趣,於2004年取得信義宗神學院基督教研究碩士學位。他的學術興趣包括理論物理、通識教育、科學與宗教的對話。

自1996年起,王博士留校於物理系執教。2009年,大學組織團隊,為將於2012年全面推行之「通識教育基礎課程」做準備工作,其中包括課程設計、試行、推行;王博士於是年調任至大學通識教育部。通識教育基礎課程由兩科目組成:「與人文對話」及「與自然對話」。王博士現時擔任通識教育基礎課程副主任,負責設計及推行「與自然對話」一科。課程現已試行幾次,學生的反應十分理想。

“Know myself!” This is the purpose of general education. General education is painful because it requires us to face our true self, but by no means is the teacher a spectator—he should take the first step and lead the students to leave the cave, even they may be unwilling.

Dr Wong Wing Hung received his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He has a deep interest in theology. In 2004, he was awarded a Master degree of Christian Studies by the Lutheran Theological Seminary. His academic interests include theoretical physics, general education and the dialogue between science and religion.

He began teaching in Department of Physics, CUHK in 1996. In 2009, he transferred to the Office of University General Education, when the core team was being assembled to design, pilot and implement the General Education Foundation (GEF) Programme for the new curriculum to all new students starting 2012. The GEF Programme consists of two courses, namely In Dialogue with Humanity and In Dialogue with Nature. As one of the two Associate Directors of the GEF Programme, Dr Wong is responsible for the course In Dialogue with Nature (now affectionately known as DIANA). The course has been piloted several times, receiving very positive feedbacks from the students.

Dr Wong has contributed a lot to the general education of CUHK since he taught in Department of Physics. Apart from course development, he has also great involvement in general education activities beyond the classroom, such as giving talks and writing books on popular science. Dr Wong was awarded the first Exemplary Teaching Award in General Education in 2006. In 2008, he was granted the Vice Chancellor Exemplary Teaching Award.
