About the Award
Ever since the founding of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), General Education (GE) has been a key part of the undergraduate curriculum which aims at nurturing students as educated persons with the intellect and inclination to appreciate broad issues concerning humanity and modern society.
Over two hundred teachers offer GE courses at CUHK, all of whom are dedicated and many, outstanding. In recognition of their contributions, the Senate Committee on General Education (SCGE) resolved in 2006 to launch the Exemplary Teaching Award in General Education. The Award is presented annually by the SCGE to normally up to four teachers in recognition of their exemplary contribution to teaching and learning in GE.
Nominations are invited from members of the Senate Committee on General Education (SCGE), teaching units, Colleges, General Education (GE) teachers and undergraduate students. The nominations are reviewed by the SCGE Standing Committee based on the course design, teaching and learning effectiveness, tutelage and Course and Teaching Evaluation results of the GE courses they offered in the past two academic years.
