This course aims to inspire the students to discover the link between human achievements at the highest level and their personal lives. At one level, by citing the Nobel Prizes, the students will learn the multi-disciplinary nature of human endeavours. At another level, by using the current Nobel Prizes as examples, we aim to use the selection process of these awards to illustrate and critique how human endeavours are evaluated. Our objective is to stimulate the students to question the process of defining and judging human achievements. In this course, students will be guided to perform a number of activities, including (but not limited to) the organisation of guest lectures on selected Nobel Prizes, the election of the most significant Nobel Prizes in the history, voting for one question to ask a real Nobel winner, and the selection of one human achievement worthy of a Nobel Prize. Through these activities, students will learn the spirit of the Nobel Prize as an award for human achievements at the highest level.
