PGDE (Liberal Studies)
This subject study equips pre-service and in-service teachers with the rationales, concepts, and competencies required for the development and implementation of the senior secondary Liberal Studies curriculum. In addition to promoting interdisciplinary studies through issues-based inquiry, the subject study also develops course participants' generic skills, pedagogical content knowledge, and assessment literacy so that they can provide rich opportunities for their students to make connections among different disciplines, examine issues from multiple perspectives, and construct personal knowledge with the learning experiences. The student-centred, activity-based, inquiry-based, experiential and constructivist approaches to teaching and learning are adopted. In regard to assessments, they are mainly authentic, performance-based and process-oriented with the aim of providing feedback for course participants' continuous improvement in the process of learning.
