Description

在过去二十年,全球入读高等教育数目有显著增加以及许多高等教育系统已经由精英转为普及化体制。当大学毕业生的供应持续增长时,毕业生失业和就业不足已成为全球许多国家面临的主要社会,经济和政治问题。本文针对上述问题,从更广泛的政治经济背景出发,批判性地考察亚洲的博雅教育的角色和贡献。本文以亚洲十大博雅大学之一香港岭南大学为例,讨论了博雅教育如何培养能关怀社会又具备全球视野的领袖,使学生准备好去适应在不确定的未来中的急速社会经济变化。

In the last two decades, higher education enrollments have increased significantly across globally and many higher education systems have been transformed from elite to mass systems. When the supply of university graduates is on consistent increases, graduate unemployment and underemployment has become major social, economic and political issues confronting many countries globally. This paper sets out against the wider political-economy context briefly outlined above to critically examine the role and contributions of liberal arts education in Asia. Making reference to Lingnan University, Hong Kong, one of the Top 10 liberal arts universities in Asia, as example, the paper discusses how liberal arts education contributes to nurturing caring leaders with global vision that would prepare students for uncertain futures with knowledge and skill sets adaptive to rapid socio-economic changes.
