GE Retreat: Towards GE Capstone: Connect. Integrate. Engage.

GEO & Local Events


The new GE Programme has been implemented in this academic year and now we are at the important stage to develop courses/projects for the Level 3 GE Capstone. During the semester break, the GE Office would like to invite to you to the GE Retreat.


The GE Retreat will provide an opportunity for the participants to explore the development of interdisciplinary Level 3 GE Capstone:

  • establishing connections with colleagues from different disciplines and the NGOs in their network;
  • exchanging ideas and experience of designing, teaching or supervising interdisciplinary courses/projects;
  • discussing how to integrate their current courses/projects into new GE Capstone courses/projects;
  • sharing views on how to engage students in service-learning, service-leadership or experiential learning to achieve the intended learning outcomes.


All colleagues are welcome. Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to enjoy the tranquility and scenery of the Academy while mingling with friends from HKBU!
