Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

香港高校自2012年起推行四年新學制以及新的課程架構,其特點為:(1)課程理念與目標已經超出傳統學術與智性發展範疇,開始融入與共通能力、態度有關的元素。(2)課程架構以必修課與分佈選修結合為主要特徵。分佈選修的範疇圍繞人文與藝術、社會與文化、科學與技術三大知識領域展開,必修科目的內容存在明顯差異,有的大學圍繞智性探究,有的大學還在智性探究範疇之外增加語言溝通、共通技能、統整融合的元素。(3)課程內容超越知識探究,關注當代社會重要議題以及未來生活需具備的能力與素質。(4)課程發展採取成果為本方法。(5)建立完善的質素保證機制,對通識課程進行定期檢討,從不同管道搜集持份者意見,對通識課程、教學做出持續改進。
