|Title:||General education program in a new 4-year university curriculum in Hong Kong : findings based on multiple evaluation strategies||Authors:||Shek, DTL
|Issue Date:||2015||Source:||International journal on disability and human development, 2015, v. 14, no. 4, p. 377-384||Abstract:||Since the 2012-2013 academic year, undergraduate programs in Hong Kong have been changed from 3 years to 4 years, with the additional year focusing primarily on general education. A new general education framework entitled General University Requirements (GUR) implemented at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) was examined in a 5-year longitudinal project. Based on different evaluation strategies, including objective outcome evaluation, subjective outcome evaluation and qualitative evaluation (focus groups, case studies, and document analyses), findings consistently showed that students had positive perceptions of the subject content, teachers as well as teaching and learning methods in GUR subjects. A large majority of students perceived that the GUR subjects were effective in promoting the five desirable graduate attributes defined by PolyU (i.e. problem solving, critical thinking ability, effective communication, ethical leadership, and lifelong learning).||Keywords:||Chinese adolescents
