They think that apart from teaching knowledge, the most important task of a teacher is to cultivate a sense of curiosity in students. It is essential for a good teacher to let students explore for themselves and find answers through their own efforts. In this way students will develop interest in different disciplines of knowledge and become lifelong learners. Just as what Prof. Swati Jhaveri, one of the awardees, said, ‘Teaching is not just about developing knowledge but also about helping develop a real interest in knowledge.’ When talking about the challenges of teaching, they agreed that the difficulty is to tackle the difference in the pace of learning among students. A total of 23 teachers and postgraduate students were presented the Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award, the Young Researcher Award and the Postgraduate Research Output Award by Prof. Lawrence J. Lau, Vice-Chancellor of the University on 1 June. The recipients had been subjected to a stringent process of review and assessment. They were some of the most respected teachers on campus, the most rigorous researchers in their fields, and the most accomplished postgraduates. The Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award has been offered since 1999, and the nine recipients this year take the total to 73 outstanding educators. The Young Researcher Award was first presented in 2003, and the eight new awardees increase the elite group of recipients to 39. The Postgraduate Research Output Award (previously Award for the Best Research Output by Research Postgraduate Students) has been presented to a total of 37 students. 校長模範教學獎 Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award 2008 師生教研出色獲表揚 Honoured with Exemplary Teaching and Research Awards 劉校長(左五)頒獎予九位模範教師,左起:文學院哲學系鄭宗義教授、工商管理學院市場學系鄺玉儀教授、教育學院教育心理學系鄭佩芸 教授、工程學院機械與自動化工程學系王昌凌教授、法律學院 Prof. Swati Jhaveri、醫學院矯形外科及創傷學系古明達教授、理學院生物 化學系梁國南教授、社會科學院心理學系梁永亮教授、政治與行政學系周保松教授 Professor Lau (5th left) presenting the awards to (from left) Prof. Cheng Chung-yi (Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Arts), Prof. Jessica Y.Y.
