講者:美國史丹福大學Jonathan Osborne教授



在本港,教育局去年亦提出STEM為未來教育課程的發展重點,而為了讓教育界人士能進一步瞭解STEM的原理及應用,「STEM教育行動」非常榮幸邀請到美國STEM教育框架的核心始創成員、美國史丹福大學的Jonathan Osborne教授親臨香港,於620主持講座「科學教育新方向及於622主持另一場講座「評估科學素養和能力:PISA及新世代科學標準的經驗之談。講座及報名詳情請見下文。

現誠邀 貴校校長及老師參與是次講座,歡迎填妥以下的回條並交回給我們,惟因場地有限,每間學校的名額只有三個,並以先到先得的形式分配。





講者:美國史丹福大學Jonathan Osborne教授

地點:九龍塘達之路72號創新中心地下Chambers 1A及1B
內容簡介:為了推行STEM 教育,美國已在十六個州份引入新世代科學標準(Next Generation Science Standards,簡稱NGSS),革新過往以探究科學基礎知識為主的教學模式,改為結合一系列學科核心知識、科學應用實踐及共通概念的論證式教學。講座將會探討改革背後的理據、有何優勝之處及對科學教育的意義。

Dear Sir/Madam,

STEM Initiative Hong Kong
Invitation to Seminars
Global Education Trend – How to implement STEM Education
Speaker: Prof. Jonathan Osborne, Stanford University
on 20th & 22nd June 2016

STEM has been advocated across the globe and regarded as the future trend of education. Originated from the US, this innovative curriculum blends four specific disciplines – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – into an integrated approach of analytical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students are equipped to apply their knowledge in real-world applications in order to prepare for the changes and challenges brought by the global development of economy, science and technology.

Last year, the Education Bureau highlighted STEM as the focus of future curriculum development. In hopes of further promoting the principles and applications of STEM to local educators, STEM Initiative Hong Kong takes pleasure in inviting Prof. Jonathan Osborne of Stanford University, a key author of the STEM framework in the US, to host a seminar entitled “New Directions in Teaching Science” on 20th June and another on Assessing Scientific Literacy and Competency: Lessons from PISA and NGSSon 22nd June. Please refer to the attached for programme and registration details.

You are cordially invited to the seminars. Should you be interested, please complete the enclosed reply slip and send it to us at your convenience. Due to the popularity of the seminars, seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Thank you for your kind attention and we look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Nisa Leung

New Directions in Teaching Science

Date: 20th June 2016 (Monday)
Time: 4:00pm
Venue: Chambers 1A & 1B, InnoCentre, 72 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong

Abstract: The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are currently implemented in 16 states in the US to promote STEM education. These standards represent a change from teaching science core ideas with a focus on inquiry, to a focus on scientific practices where argumentation is a core feature. The seminar will explore the rationale for this change, why it is seen as an improvement, and the implications for science teaching.


Assessing Scientific Literacy and Competency: Lessons from PISA and NGSS
(With a panel discussion moderated by Prof. Lap-Chee Tsui)

Date: 22nd June 2016 (Wednesday)
Time: 4:00pm
Venue: The Leighton Hill Community Hall, G/F, 133 Wong Nai Chung Road, Happy Valley

Abstract: Under the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), the learning outcomes are defined in terms of what students are able to do, not just what they know or can recall. Hence a new system of assessments is needed. The seminar will discuss how to design a system to meet the vision of NGSS, review the existing items and their suitability for NGSS, measure the scientific practice of arguing from evidence, as well as the issues and challenges for the field.
