光學設計概論教學相長影音教材TEDVoicetubeIntroduction to Optical Design
另外，在專業科目”光學設計概論”的學科上，成績前段學生提攜成績中後段學生。從此門課程成績高低分布來看，此讀書會明顯的發揮了正面作用。This study group is formed in hopes of encouraging and/or helping classmates to learn English through the processes of speaking, reading and listening to English weekly or even daily. One or two weeks before the midterm and final examinations, we’ll switch from the English meetings to review sections on the professional courses, and our discussions will be handled with the belief that “teaching others teaches ourselves”.
Every week, one or two students would be asked to prepare relevant audio/video materials, such as those from TED and Voicetube websites. Students who are in charge of preparations and pre-study would first share with other members about the motivations of their choosing materials and the related comments. And then, other members would take turns to express their viewpoints about the materials. All of these presentations and communications, along with some guidance from professor Ying Te Lee, are undertaken in English. A week or two before the major examinations, students with better academic performance would lead the whole group to study and discuss some critical topics choosing from the professional courses.
One semester after the study group was founded, students who were used to be shy in speaking English are now, regardless of the level of their English proficiency, feeling more comfortable or confident to speak in English. It’s obvious that their interests in learning English has been enhanced. In addition, there are evidences that our discussions on the professional subject of “Introduction to Optical Design” have made positive impacts on every member. The benefits are even more obvious for those members with poorer grades before the final exam, cause they all made great progresses on the final exams and impressed the course instructor, Prof. Ma.
