It is said that ‘knowledge can change one’s destiny’, but does ‘destiny’ refer to getting a good job or simply being an educated person? One of the purposes of education is to stimulate and cultivate students’ curiosity and desire to learn, and to make it a lifelong enrichment. But under the limitations of institutionalisation, how can we go towards realising the ideals of teaching and learning? In this forum, we will explore what are the core values of university education, and the challenges in upholding such values today.
