簡介

通識教育程是香港中文大學本科生的必修課程,學生有不同的學術背景,如何教授通識科是教師的一大考驗;人文與理工類通識科有何效能?教師在設計課程時又有什麼需要注意,在傳遞知識之餘,又如何能幫學生成長?

是次通識午餐聚會,我們邀得梁卓恒博士和劉智軒博士擔任講者。梁卓恒博士將分享講授大學通識教育基礎課程UGFH1000「與人文對話」及新亞書院通識課GENA1113「學生為本的教學與研討」的經驗,探討人文與社會議題具有的通識教育效能,並分享兩套關於研討課的教學策略,討論通識教育如何有助學生成長。劉智軒博士則會與我們分享教授理工科類通識科的教學經驗。面對數學難題,部分學生會焦慮或恐懼,他們或曾在數學方面感到沮喪,因此缺乏信心解決數學問題。劉博士任教的UGEB2530「博奕和策略思想」讓學生從非技術層面出發,從簡單遊戲到現實生活中遇到的經濟、社會心理學、生物及商業問題,帶領學生認識博奕論,當中會以簡單的數學術語去學習著名的「納什均衡」(Nash equilibrium)。劉博士其中一個教學目的,是讓所有學生能以多種方法認識數學,並以數學方法去解決日常生活遇到的問題。

Brief Description

General Education (GE) is a compulsory study programme in the undergraduate curriculum of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. One of the challenges that all GE teachers faces is how to teach a course with students from different academic background. Besides, what are the influences in the GE courses of humanity- and science- field? Apart from imparting knowledge, what should teachers be aware when they are conducting GE courses to facilitate student growth?

In this GE lunch seminar, we have invited Dr. Leung Cheuk Hang and Dr. Lau Chi Hin to share their teaching experience in respect of student growth. Dr. Leung would introduce his experience in teaching UGFH1000 “In Dialogue with Humanity” and GENA1113 “Student-Oriented Teaching and Seminar”, with a focus on how GE elements are infused in humanity and social issues. Dr. Leung would also share two different teaching pedagogies when conducting discussion-based lessons, followed by a discussion on how GE will help to facilitate student growth. Meanwhile, Dr. Lau Chi Hin will share with us his experience in teaching GE courses related to the science fields. Some students are described as having mathematical anxiety or math phobia. These students usually have a lot of frustrating experience in mathematics and they are lack of confidence in solving mathematical problems. Dr. Lau’s GE course UGEB2530 “Games and Strategic Thinking” provides students with a non-technical exploration of game theory. It starts with very simple parlor games to more realistic problems in economics, social psychology, biology, and business. The celebrated “Nash equilibrium” are explained and studied in simple mathematical terms. One of his goals is to make all students understand that mathematics can be used in many different ways and everyone can use mathematics to solve problems related to daily life.

簡介

2020–21年是充滿挑戰與改變的一年,因應疫情,教師及教學部門都付出了大量心力進行網上教學,其中以討論為本的課堂特別困難。網上教學限制了師生之間及學生之間的自然互動交流,令討論課難以如常進行。另外,實踐學習是理工科不可或缺的部分,當中包括機械人、電子、電機及再生能源等通識科,怎樣處理實驗室元素的教學是網上/遙控學習的一大挑戰。是次疫情中,大學多個資訊科技支援團隊為網上教學提供了不少協助,解決師生遇到的問題,未來又會不會有進一步的支援?

是次通識午餐聚會邀得張恆鏘博士、韓東昆博士、羅翠嬋女士分享網上教學的經驗和支援策略。

張恆鏘博士將分享UGFN1000「與自然對話」一科的ZOOM課堂設計,重點解說如何提升學生在網上課堂討論的參與度。除此以外,張博士亦會介紹促進學生自主學習的學習支援工具。

韓東昆博士則會展示三種網上教學方式以解決不同類型的體驗式學習問題。首先是在是UGEB1307「能源與綠色社會」一科運用的 “Flipped Online Laboratory”:學生透過事先(即不同步)在網上學習實驗視頻,然後在網上實驗室(同步)製造太陽能汽車。韓博士與團隊進一步開發了改良版本 “Flipped Online Laboratory Plus”,並於UGEB2303「動感機器人」一科應用。“Flipped Online Laboratory Plus”由具有遙距控制技術的真實機器人去建構網上實驗室。為求精益求精,韓博士團隊之後更推出專業版本的“Flipped Online Laboratory Pro”,主要特色包括:1. 構建無人的機器人實驗室;2. 配備自動評估技術,評估學生的實驗室表現;3. 提供以人工智能為基礎的學習支援和個人化教育,讓學生從大數據分析中學習電腦程式。韓博士亦會分析在現有通識科中應用相關教學方法的成效。

羅翠嬋女士將闡述教師在疫情期間任教通識網上實時課堂經常遇到的挑戰,並分享資訊科技服務處(ITSC)現有幫助老師和學生解決問題的支援資源和服務。除了ZOOM,ITSC亦計劃引入一些新的資訊軟件(如Respondus Monitor, Gradescope, Piazza, Proctorio, Examsoft)以供教師試用,羅女士將於是次講座中稍作介紹。

Brief Description

2020–21 has been a year of challenge and change. Teachers and teaching units in CUHK have put tremendous efforts in adapting to online teaching and learning during the pandemic time. Discussion-based lessons are greatly challenged in respect of interaction between teacher and students and communication among students. Apart from that, hands-on skills training is of essential importance in many science and engineering related general education courses, like robotics, electronics, mechanics and renewable energy. A major concern in online/distance education is how to overcome the problems associated with laboratory components. Besides, various IT support teams in the University have been providing a lot of assistance to both teachers and students on online teaching during the pandemic. What new instruments will be introduced in the future?

In this GE Lunch Seminar, we invite Dr. Cheung Hang Cheong Derek, Dr. Han Dongkun, and Ms. Judy Lo to share their experience of online teaching. Dr. Derek Cheung will share his ZOOM lesson design, which attempts to enhance students’ engagement in the ZOOM discussion of the General Education Foundation course UGFN 1000 “In Dialogue with Nature”. Learning support tools that can facilitate students’ independent learning will also be introduced.

Dr. Han Dongkun will demonstrate three eLearning pedagogical approaches he introduced to address the issue of hands-on skills training at different levels. Firstly, flipped online laboratory is proposed and implemented in UGEB1307 “Energy and Green Society”. The basic underlying idea is that an online (synchronous) laboratory could be conducted with the help of flipped (asynchronous) laboratory instructions for students to make solar powered cars. Secondly, based on the flipped online laboratory, an improved version flipped online laboratory plus is developed and implemented in UGEB2303 “Robots in Action”. The main modification is that the online lab is constructed based on a real robotic laboratory with real robots under remote control technique. Finally, a further polished version, flipped online laboratory pro, is generated. The key distinct features are: 1. It makes unmanned robotic lab possible; 2. It incorporates automatic assessment technique on students’ performance in the lab; 3. AI-based learning assistance and personalized education are provided for studying computer programming based on big-data analysis. Dr Han will also demonstrate the effectiveness of the three versions of flipped online laboratory in the existing general education courses.

Ms. Judy Lo will go through a few common challenges GE teachers face when they deliver real-time online classes during COVID-19 and share some support resources and services available to help teachers (and students) cope with the challenges. In addition to ZOOM, a few new IT solutions have been or will be offered for teachers to try during COVID-19. Ms. Lo will briefly go through these new IT solutions (e.g. Respondus Monitor, Gradescope, Piazza, Proctorio, Examsoft) with the audience and share how teachers can try out these new solutions if they are interested.
