Classics in Motion

The syllabus of In Dialogue with Humanity covers a wide range of classics from the Western and Eastern traditions. Experience tells us that they also have difficulties in comprehending texts from the East. On the one hand, most of the students know little about the conceptual and historical background of Confucius; on the other hand, the Buddhist concept of emptiness is difficult to understand. With the MMCDG grant, we produced three brief explainer videos and corresponding PowerPoint presentations. The developed courseware aims at enhance students' understanding of the classics, and it is designed as flipped-classroom activities to enable students to learn at home or wherever they have access to internet. In the poster session, we are going to present the explainer videos and PowerPoint presentations, and share the experience we made and difficulties we met with other participants.
