Other information
AbstractTo facilitate classroom flipping, we have developed a suite of micro-modules for 5 of the 11 classics taught in the course UGFN1000, In Dialogue with Nature, under the Micro-Module Courseware Development Grant Scheme 2, 2015-16. This course is a compulsory general education foundation course for all students in the Chinese University of Hong Kong which requires students to read science-related classics on their own and to discuss the core questions brought up by the classics that are enduring in the history of human civilizations. Students often reported that the 1-hour lecture is insufficient to provide necessary background knowledge for them to handle the specific classic text on their own. With the help of this suite of micro-modules, students can watch a variety of materials at their own pace and at their own will at home. These materials include: 1) introducing the historical background of the text and the author, 2) explaining any applications or the issues raised, and 3) discussing the core questions raised in each text. KEEP (Knowledge & Education Exchange Platform) was used as the platform to present these materials to the students. In this presentation and poster, we will share our experience in how we developed this micro-module website on KEEP and how it is integrated into the teaching of the course.
