General Education Student Seminar
Organized by Office of University General Education since 2010, the annual GE Student Seminar celebrates the achievements of outstanding students in General Education Foundation Programme. It aims at gathering both former and current GEF students who share passion for reading classics to discuss their peers’ good works and ponder about life. At the GE Student Seminar, awardees were invited to present their papers, share the main ideas as well as their experience of composing the papers with their teachers and fellow classmates.
“1st General Education Student Seminar – Critical Reading of Natural Philosophy, Science and Technology” is the first General Education Student Seminar at the CUHK which aims to provide a platform for academic exchange. GESS focuses on Natural Philosophy, Science and Technology. Nine students have been invited from UGB2412 (Science in Classics: Exploring the Universe and Life( or UGE2806 (Technology and Life) to share their papers. University General Education not only focuses on knowledge but also emphasizes student reflection. As a result, students are able to reflect and explore more through sharing their views and papers.
The award-bearing essays of S.H. Ho students are listed as follows.
