Diverse Learning Experience

A Holistic Education for Physics Study


The aims of the project are to develop a new 4-year Physics undergraduate programme for the 2012 and subsequent cohorts; to introduce the Student Response System to class teaching; and to design new experiments and review existing ones for enhancement of laboratory work. The existing programme structures and course syllabuses have been revised following the adoption of outcomes-based approach to student teaching and learning, with diverse learning and assessment activities.
