Details

Have universities forgotten their educational role in guiding students to grow up? With specific reference to Hong Kong, the university structure was a three-year program before the 2012/13 academic year that was modeled after the British system. However, with the introduction of higher education reform the university structure was changed to four years, with the additional year devoted to general education. At The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), the general university requirements (GUR) were designed to promote the holistic development of the students. In this book, the authors summarize the evaluation and research findings, answering the question of how well the desired graduate attributes were achieved. It is their modest wish that through this book, there will be a better understanding for implementing a general education program in Hong Kong. (Imprint: Nova)
