我是大學生嗎?

人 路

-- 專訪梁偉賢教授 (本文內容摘錄於 2012 年迎新講座的內容。)

記:《恒人路》記者 梁:梁偉賢教授 (恒生管理學院通識教育部主任)

我是大學生嗎? 記: 去年為什麼要講一個「Am I a University Student?」的迎新講座呢? 梁: 不少同學以為修讀大學課程就是大學生了, 但他們的行為模式、心態和價值取向都不是一個大學生。新同學若不明白中學和 大學兩者的分別,將會行很多冤枉路,甚至白白浪費一生人得一次的 4 年大學生 活。 成為八大的強勁對手 記: 自資院校的同學一般都比較擔心畢業後的競爭力,教授對此有何看法? 梁: 沒錯,同學畢業後要跟八大的畢業生競爭,所以我希望同學能改變一下想法,不 要看輕自己,不要當八大是自己的強勁對手,而是把自己成為八大的強勁對手。 恒管希望成為最佳的大學,成為私立大學的少林寺,每個畢業生都經過「木人 巷」、「十八銅人」,出到社會「好打得」。四年裡面令同學擁有良好的兩文三 語、分析能力、組織能力和寬闊的視野。然而,“Learning doesn’t happen without you!”,單靠教授的努力不能成事,需要每一位同學努力參與教和學的 過程,師生一同付出才能達成。

P. 7


中學 vs. 大學 記: 教授強調要做真真正正的大學生,其實大學和中學有什麼分別? 梁: 大學和中學的分別主要在於「知識範疇」和「時間管理」上的差別。 什麼是「知識範疇」呢?中學教育較著重既定範疇,有標準答案, 中學教育主要 教同學如何答問題;然而大學就截然不同,大學講求知識的多元範疇,大學是知 識的搖籃,沒有標準答案,同學的答案可以跟老師的不一樣,我們鼓勵同學發 問,知識就是從「已知」尋求「未知」。 「時間管理」方面,大學要提供一個自由環境,同學沒有密密麻麻的上課時間 表,沒有固定課室,時間表可以自己安排,同學要學做 自己時間的主人。關於時 間管理方面,我特別想強調:自由很可貴,所以更需要大家悉心去安排、善用。我 曾在中大教學 28 年,看到不少同學經常返兼職,甚至連上堂都無精神。的確,返工 可以賺取生活費、可以買到新手機、可以幫輕父母負擔。但大學生活是人生中寶 貴的四年,改變你人生的關鍵四年,決定你未來四十年的生活如何過的四年, 所以我衷心奉勸同學,最好不要做兼職,可以做一份的話不要做兩份,目標就是要 切切實實善用這人生中的四年大學生活。

P. 8 A Survival Guide for New HSMCers


強化四大能力 記: 大學生經常寫論文,有什麼建議給大家呢? 梁: 很多同學都很害怕寫論文,甚至找幾篇文章抄取節錄,敷衍了事,實在

可惜。其實寫論文是一個極佳的訓練。首先,寫論文要參考其他著作、材 料,因此要判斷哪些能支持你的觀點,資料的重要性如何、相關性如何

;之後要將不同論點、材料、數據組織起來,要考慮哪些重要、哪些次 要;接著要執筆寫出來,如何遣辭用字,如何將你的論點鋪陳出來。每一 個步驟都訓練同學判斷能力、組織能力、溝通能力、分析能力,不論同學 將來做什麼工作,做買辦、金融、行政主任,甚至做特首也需要這四大能 力,對吧?

梁教授給新生的錦囊: ● 有問題要即時解決,一有問題,立即找人幫忙,大學裡有太多人可以幫到你! ● 克苦、勤勞、克服困難,是年青人必須具備的心態。 ● 時間把握在你手裡,掌握它,運用它,做時間的主人,不要成為時間的奴隸。 ● 世上無難事,只要有決心,克服自己,問題一定能夠解決。

Am I a University Student? — An Interview with Professor Kenneth Leung (Extracted from the Orientation Seminar 2012.) R: Reporter L: Prof. Kenneth Leung (Professor and Chairperson, Department of General Education) Am I a University Student? R: L:

Why was the Orientation Seminar titled Am I a University Student? Many students think that enrolling in a university programme directly translates into being a university student, but they have overlooked the behaviour, the mindset and the values one must have as a university student. If they are not clear about the differences between a secondary school and a university, freshmen may fail to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime university experience and waste these four years. P. 9


Be the rival of the graduates of the eight UGC-funded universities R: L:

Students of a self-financing institution tend to worry about their competitiveness after graduation. What do you think? It is true that our students have to compete with those from the eight UGC-funded universities. Instead of underestimating themselves and seeing those graduates as strong opponents, students shall become the other’s biggest rivals. HSMC upholds its vision to be one of the best universities, an academic boot camp. To become the elite of the society, all of our students are to take on different challenges in the four-year study, which aims at equipping them with excellent trilingual, analytical and organizational ability, and broadening their horizons. The efforts made by professors alone are insufficient to achieve all the above; students need to make their own contribution as “learning doesn’t happen without you!” Therefore, on the road of education, students and professors are to walk every step together.

Secondary schools vs. Universities R: L:

You stress on being a true university student. What are the differences between a university and a secondary school? The major differences lie on knowledge coverage and time management. What is knowledge coverage? Secondary education focuses on specific coverage that every question comes with a model answer and on the ways of answering a question. University education, however, is a total different story; it covers different disciplines. University is a cradle for knowledge, which has no model answers. Students may have viewpoints different from those of the teachers and are encouraged to ask, because knowledge is enriched through pursuing the unknown from the known.

P. 10 A Survival Guide for New HSMCers


For time management, students shall become the master of their time. They are not restricted by packed timetables and fixed classrooms as universities give students lots of freedom in learning. I would like to stress that freedom is valuable, so students shall plan their time and use their freedom wisely. During my 28-year teaching in the CUHK, I noted that many students had so many part-time jobs that they were not energetic in class. Working as a part-time could definitely earn you some extra cash for new mobile phones, and help to ease the burden of your family. However, these four years will also bring vital changes to your life, changes that determine your life 40 years later. This is why I strongly advise students to take no part-time jobs, if possible, or to take only one job instead of two, if they can. They shall use these four years wisely for growth and development.

恒 人 路

Strengthening four major capabilities R:

L:

University students have many academic papers to write. Do you have any suggestions? Many students are afraid of writing academic papers; some may just copy or extract chapters from other articles, which is a pity. Indeed, writing papers is an excellent training for students. You first get to refer to other works and collect information, and you get to judge which piece of information supports your argument and how important and relevant it is to your paper. Then you have to organise the arguments, the materials and the figures you have collected, and consider which are more important. Afterwards, it comes to the writing in which you have to consider how to write and how to present the arguments. Every step in writing a paper could train your judge mental, organizational, communicational, analytical capabilities, which are necessary in every sector including procurement and finance. Even if you want to be an administrative officer or even the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, you need these four major capabilities, don’t you?

Survival Tips for New HSMCers: (I) Handling Stress Given a new study environment, new curriculum, and new classmates under a new learning pattern, it is normal for freshmen to feel stressed and frustrated in adapting the new university life. Nevertheless, if you felt tense or anxious, suffered from insomnia and loss in concentration, or even tried to avoid social activities recently, you might be showing signs of stress reactions . All these mean that you get to know some stress management techniques.

ć ’ äşş 衯

Do not avoid stress. Address and manage it. Here are some stress management techniques that you may want to try. Maintain a balanced diet and take enough rest

Problems cannot be solved by a lack of rest and food. Maintaining a balanced diet and taking enough rest would help.

Exercise regularly

Regular exercise leads to a healthier lifestyle, brings joy and satisfaction, and helps in coping with stress.

Set a reasonable and achievable short-term goal Manage your time

Prepare a step-by-step plan to pursue your goal. A small step today results in a big leap tomorrow.

Build a social network

We can always learn from others. A good social network could be the biggest support, as you might gain insight while spilling your problems and stress to your friends.

Think positively

Focusing on the gloom side only magnifies misfortune. Therefore, think about something positive once a day to be happy.

Smile more from the bottom of your heart

Smiles more to make the world a better place.

Plan your daily schedule to allocate time on study, on family and social life.

If you continue to feel more stress, you shall seek help immediately. You may also come to the Student Affairs Office (SAO) for professional counseling.

新恒管人的求生指南: (II) 建立友誼

不論去到什麼地方,當人面對新的生 活、新的環境時,我們都希望能認識新 朋友,好讓自己能透過新朋友而獲得 精神上及實則的支持。如何與新朋友 建立友誼呢? 以下是一些建立友誼之法,不妨參考一下: ● 第一印象: 有禮、主動、友善,是第一印象的必要條件。 ● 學會欣賞: 每個人都願被欣賞,你能欣賞別人,朋友自然願意和你相處。 ● 認識自己: 了解自己多些,你會更容易認識到能和你相處的朋友。 ● 做回自己: 不要心急,建立友誼需要時間,千萬不要因想得到別人的喜愛而刻意 改變自己。 ● 爭取機會: 多參加課外活動,不但學到更多知識,更加透過這些場合認識更多志 同道合的朋友。 ● 主動聆聽: 初 認 識 新 朋 友,切 忌 口 若 懸 河,應 多 聆 聽,從 對 方 觀 點 看 問 題, 多了解不同人的想法。 ● 保持聯絡: 當認識到新朋友,應主動保持緊密聯絡,不要等別人找你才聯絡。 ● 接受不同:「若要人似我,除非兩個我」,最投契的朋友也有意見不合的時候, 應尊重彼此的不同。 ● 提升能力: 如自問社交能力不濟,其實能 力 是 可 以 提 升 的,何 不 參 加 溝 通 能 力、社交能力的工作坊呢。

Survival Tips for New HSMCers: (II) Develop Friendship When entering a new phase of life or facing a new environment, wherever we are, we always hope to meet new friends, who bring us support, either spiritual or real. How shall we make new friends then?

恒 人 路

Here are some ways to develop a friendship:

● Give the first impression: Being polite, active and friendly are essential for a good first impression.

● Learn to appreciate: Everyone wants to be praised. Friends could get along with you easily if you know how to appreciate others. ● Get to know yourself: Knowing yourself better help you to meet friends who could get along with you.

● Be yourself: It takes time to develop a friendship, so be patient and be yourself. Do not change yourself for others. ● Fight for chances: In addition to learning more, you could meet more friends who have similar hobbies by participating in more extra-curricular activities.

● Listen actively: Avoid being too talkative in your first meeting. Instead, you shall listen more and put yourself in other’s shoes to understand different viewpoints.

● Keep in touch: Instead of waiting others to take initiative, you shall step out to contact new friends.

● Accept differences: “There is no another me except there are two.” Even your best friends would have different views, so you shall learn how to respect the differences between each other.

● Enhance social skills: Indeed, social skills could be improved. If you are not confident of your social skills, then why don’t you join the workshops to enhance your communication and social skills?

新恒管人的求生指南: (III) 時間管理 同學入大學後其中一樣要適應的是如何安配自己 的時間,大學跟中學不同,沒有密密麻麻的課堂時 間表。可是,提交報告、考試及功課均設有一定期 限,同學應及早分配時間,以免被一個接一個的 「死線」所困擾。及早了解可如何有效地分配時 間,將成為你大學生涯成功與否的關鍵!以下是 一些助你掌握時間的辦法: 評估自己使用時間的習慣 試試紀錄一星期所做的事情和所需之時間,一星 期後看看是否需要因應目標及優先次序而作適當的調節。 趕走「時間竊賊」 相信你也曾試過有「這麼快就一日了,還有很多事未做呢?」的感覺,時間在不知不覺間 被「時間竊賊」偷走了,例如:上網閒聊、過量上莊事務、工作分心、不懂拒絕別人的打 擾等等。我們應自覺有「時間竊賊」的存在,並利用「預先計劃,即時行動」來應付「時 間竊賊」。 「應做的事」和「想做的事」 在有限的時間下,應學會分辨什麼是「應做的事」,什麼是「想做的事」,並羅列必做清 單,排好你心目中的優先次序,按步就班根據擬定的時間表行事,你會發覺時間在你掌握 之下更見充裕,不但能準時完成工作,更能安心休息和玩樂!

P. 18 A Survival Guide for New HSMCers


Survival Tips for New HSMCers: (III) Time Management One thing that students have to master in their university lives is managing time. Unlike secondary school, universities do not have tight timetables. There is, however, always a time limit for submitting reports, sitting examinations and turning in assignments. Students shall plan their time to avoid being overwhelmed by one deadline after the other. Knowing how to manage your time as early as possible is critical to your university life. Here are some ways for time management:

恒 人 路

Evaluate your habit of using time Try to record what you have done in a week and the time required. At the end of the week, check whether you need adjust the time for each task according to your goals and priorities. Get rid of “time thefts” You might have the same experience that “the day is ending but I have done so little?” Time is stolen by “time thefts” such as online chat, excessive extra-curricular activities, distraction during work and failure of rejecting others’ interruptions. We shall be aware of the “time theft” and deal with it with the strategy of “plan early and act now”. “Things I should do” vs. “Things I want to do”. With limited time, we need to distinguish “things I should do” from “things I want to do”. Compile a to-do list and arrange your priorities. Stick to the schedule and you will find out that far more time is in your control. Completing your work on time, you can rest and enjoy your leisure time without any burden.

P. 19


新恒管人的求生指南: (IV) 有效學習 學習是一個漫長的旅程,即使進入大學的你已經歷過無數次考試,但進入了不同的階段, 就需要調節不同的心態及方法。大學的上課時間較中學少,但並不意味大學生可以減少學 習時數,而是學習模式改變了。大學教育要求同學更主動、更自主地參與學習的過程。以 下的學習策略,同學不妨參考一下。 自主學習 大學課程每星期一般只上課約 18 小時,但期望同學每上一小時的課,用大概兩小時作為 備課及溫習之用。功課要求會較中學時更有深度和寬度,不少更需要以小組形式完成,故 同學應學懂如何及早籌謀、分工合作。 自我期望 新階段開始,可為自己定立一個明確的學習目標、期望,然後努力去實現。然而,同學不 必太執著於跟同學比較,所謂「勝人者力,自 勝者強」,能夠不斷自我成長、自我完善即可, 無須為自己添加太大壓力。 主動求教 每位同學來自不同成長背景、不同性格及能 力,學習上有差異是正常不過的事。因此, 當學習上遇到困難,應主動向教授或指導 老師 (Personal Tutor)請教,我們的教授十 分樂意跟同學傾談,並提供合適的方法,讓 你盡快適應大學的學習模式。你亦可向你 的師兄師姐請教,聆聽一下「過來人」的經 驗 ; 朋 輩 間 亦可 以 組 成 學習 小 組 (Study Group),互相交流學習心得。

P. 20 A Survival Guide for New HSMCers


Survival Tips for New HSMCers: (IV) Effective Learning Learning is a long journey. Although you had experienced countless examinations before entering university, you need to change the attitude and approach as you enter a different phase. The time spent in class in university is less than that in secondary school. It does not mean that students can reduce their study time, students should beware that the way of learning has changed. University education requires students to be more active and independent learners. Here are some learning strategies for your reference:

恒 人 路

Self-learning University programmes, in general, require around 18 hours of class per week. Nevertheless, students are expected to spend about 2 hours for preparation and revision for every hour they spend in the classroom. Compared with those given in secondary schools, assignments require more depth and width of knowledge and many of them need group work. Therefore, students shall learn how to plan, divide the workload and cooperate with one another. Self-expectation In the beginning of a new phase, you may want to set a clear academic goal and strive to fulfill your expectations though you need not to be too keen on comparing with your classmates. “It is only force you show when you defeat others; but strength when you overcome yourself.” It only matters whether you show improvement. There is no need to push yourself too hard. Ask for Help It is common that students from different backgrounds and with different characters and abilities perform differently in study. When you face any problems, you shall seek help from professors or personal tutors. Our professors are more than happy to discuss with you and give you suggestions to help you adapt to the way of learning in university. Meanwhile, you may also ask senior students for their experiences. Forming a study group with your peers can also facilitate the interchange of learning experiences.
