在2016/17上學期,本站提供兩類輔助課堂(大部分以廣東話及普通話教授,亦將推出英文課堂)。
  (1)文本三至五(牛頓、達爾文、華生):短片專為缺乏物理、化學、生物背景的同學而設,補充一些相關的基礎知識。
  (2)文本七至十一(龐加萊、坎德爾、李約瑟等):短片就文本背景、特別專題、趣味課題進行延伸探討。

這些網上輔助課堂都是《與自然對話》的老師精心設計,他們有見同學和老師往往反映一小時的講課並不足以完整地交代文本的相關背景,同學自行閱讀文本時亦常遇上困難。因此,老師經常會使用了導修的大部分時間來解釋文本內容,而未能把時間有效投放於討論核心問題。與自然對話 – 網上輔助課堂就每一經典篇章製作了一系列短片,補足文本的相關背景,以助同學充分理解文本。老師和同學得以善用寶貴的導修時間,來深入探討及反思核心問題,連繫自身及當今處境。

UGFN1000, In Dialogue with Nature, requires students to read science-related classics on their own and to discuss the core questions brought up by the classics that are enduring in the history of human civilizations. As a 3-unit course, each week, a 1-hour session of lecture and a 2-hour session of interactive tutorial are dedicated for each of the 11 classics within UGFN syllabus. However, teachers and students often reported that the 1-hour lecture is insufficient to provide necessary background knowledge for the students to handle the specific classic text on their own. It is common that most of the time in the 2-hour interactive tutorial is used not for the discussion of the core questions but for the comprehension of the textual meaning of the classics.

The “In Dialogue with Nature – Supplementary courseware” website contains a suite of micro-modules for each classics. The basic idea is to have the micro-modules to give further background knowledge to the students in various aspects related to the comprehension of each specific classic text in addition to the corresponding 1-hour lecture. This allows freeing up the 2 hours invaluable face-to-face teacher-student interactive tutorial for deeper discussions and reflections on the core questions and be able to relate them to modern issues and themselves.

As of 2016/17 Term 1, the website includes: two types of materials:
  1) In Text 3-5, the materials are designed to give extra help on students with little prior knowledge on Physics, Biology and Chemistry.  
  2) In Text 7-11, there are videos on further explanations of the background, special topics, interesting issues that are related to each text.
