Chan Kwan Ho (Teddy)BEd&BSocSc, Year 3

    I am interested in education and psychology, and that is the reason why I have chosen the program BEd&BSocSc. Having Common Core, from my perspective, is an intriguing policy in HKU. Unlike other courses under different faculties, Common Core is to widen students’ horizon, to gain extra knowledge that is, perhaps, outside their study field that is related to society and a globalized world. Being a student under the Faculty of Education, I would like to investigate how different courses are designed and constructed in the first place. Investigating the discrepancy between the ideal and the actual implementation of Common Core Courses is with my greatest interest. It is hope that I can contribute to a better implementation of the common core courses such that common core can become more interesting and, most importantly, more meaningful to students.
