Chao Kuang Piu College visits USCET Office

June 9, 2016

On Thursday June 9th, longtime friends of Ambassador Chang's, Professor Chuansheng Liu and Dr. Jingyi Liu visited the USCET office, along with three graduate students. Professor Liu is the founding Master of University of Macau’s Chao Kuang Piu College.  CKPC emulates the British Oxford/Cambridge University model where professors and students live in close proximity to foster close teaching and mentoring relationships. 

 

Professor Liu also designed the college’s curriculum to give students a balance between the sciences and the humanities over the four year period. The diverse student body encourages the appreciation and respect of different cultures, as students learn how people from different cultural backgrounds complement and enrich each other. One of CKPC’s featured programs is the “Inspiring Talk” series. The seminars enable students to interact with renowned scholars, researchers, and experts in small and informal discussions. These talks range from psychology and entrepreneurship, to photojournalism and history. At CKPC, students are encouraged to form interdisciplinary study groups to address critical issues—current or historical, local or global.

 

The small delegation is visiting several universities in the U.S. to learn more about the American education system as well as cooperative opportunities in academic matters. 

曹光彪书院代表参观USCET办公室

 

六月九日,张之香大使的老朋友刘全生教授和洪静怡博士,与他们的三位研究生一同参观了USCET的办公室。刘全生教授是澳门大学曹光彪书院(CKPC)的创始人。曹光彪书院效仿牛津剑桥的教学模式,教授、学者与学生共同住宿生活学习社区,有助于师生间建立更加紧密的学习和指导关系。

 

刘全生教授亲自设计了书院的课程表,让学生在四年的学生生涯里能够体会到科技与人文的平衡。多元化的学生团体促进大家学会欣赏和尊敬不同的文化,学习来自不同文化背景的人如何互相学习补充。曹光彪书院的其中一个特色项目叫做“博雅讲座系列”,这些研讨会使学生有机会与知名学者专家进行非正式的讨论互动。讲座涵盖了从心理学到创业,从新闻摄影到历史的广泛主题。同时书院鼓励学生组成跨学科学习小组,共同讨论解决古今中外的重大议题。

 

代表团一行此次来美参观数所美国大学以学习美国教育系统,并寻求学术方面的合作机会。
