1. 學生可以通過MOOC 學習獲得全球學習經驗
3. 幫助學生選擇適合的 MOOC 學習是非常重要
時今，人們需要面對更複雜及模糊的國際問題。因此，我們需要提升學生理解國際的能力，並培養他們的全球公民意識。然而，傳統的全球教育主要依靠昂貴的國外遊學團，在疫情期間亦不能舉辦。香港大學近年為四間背景不同的中學推出大規模開放線上課程 (MOOC) 。
1. MOOC 的起源
2. 在四間中小學推行MOOC 學習經驗
3. 即席體驗 MOOC 學習模式 - 參加者將在導師帶領下探索3600 MOOC 課程

From the workshop:
1. Students can gain global learning experiences through MOOC learning.
2. Students with average language proficiency could complete MOOCs.
3. Supporting students in identifying relevant MOOCs is essential.
Nowadays, people have to thrive in a fast-paced world full of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity and have to respond to emerging and development needs of the community. Therefore, global citizens with generic skills (e.g. critical thinking, communications, creativity) and attitudes (e.g. global citizenship, lifelong learning, self-directed learning) are in huge demand today. There are need to help students to develop these skills and attitudes in an experiential manner. Although extracurricular activities and service learning in the K12 curriculum can facilitate students learning of these skills, we believe there are limited opportunities in local secondary schools in Hong Kong for students to enrich further.
The workshop will cover
1. Introduction to MOOC
2. MOOC learning experience in primary and secondary schools
3. Hands-On MOOC Experience - Participants will be given time to explore 3600 MOOC offered by Coursera under the supervision of the instructors.
