In Dialogue with Nature – Supplementary

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. However, students and teachers often reported that the 1-hour lecture is insufficient to provide all the necessary background knowledge, which might hinder students’ understanding of the texts when they read them on their own.

The “In Dialogue with Nature – Supplementary courseware” website contains a set of video clips to address this situation. These clips are made by the teachers of In Dialogue with Nature to provide background information on each text, in order to enhance students’ understanding of the classics.

The website has two aims:
1) To provide additional help for non-science students
2) To deepen the understanding of the historical background of each text and its related issues in modern context
