Abstract

What are the goals of Gateway Education? How are Gateway Education courses related to Gateway Education programmes as well as programmes in the major areas of study? What characteristics define effective Gateway Education programmes?

The new season of STEP started with an update of the progress of GE at CityU. Our GE coordinator and colleagues with expertise in GE development attempted to answer the above and other questions by sharing the expertise and experience they gathered in the GE Institute. Some of the “best practices” in GE found across the United States were showcased in this overview session.
