The main theme of GE Seminars for the year 2023-2024 is “The Pursuit of Knowledge”. Confucius once remarked, “Is it not a pleasure, having learned something, to try it out at due intervals?” The quote is about learning methods and attitudes towards the pursuit of knowledge. If students can grasp effective methods and cultivate positive attitudes towards learning, their learning would not only be effective but also a source of joy. However, for most people, these methods and attitudes are not innate, but need to be learned from teachers. Esteemed scholars will share their profound ideas and personal experiences in their pursuit of knowledge in this year’s GE Seminars.
