  • Dr Susan GANO-PHILLIPS, Visiting Fulbright Scholar in Gateway Education


What are the goals of Gateway Education? How are Gateway Education courses related to Gateway Education programmes as well as programmes in the major area of study? What characteristics define effective Gateway Education programmes? Dr Susan Gano-Phillips, our Visiting Fulbright Scholar in Gateway Education, will attempt to answer these and other questions by briefly tracing the historical roots of Gateway Education and presenting “best practices” in GE found across the United States in this overview session. As CityU proceeds with the implementation of its Gateway Education programme, this session is designed to stimulate thinking and discussion about programme goals, pedagogy, and intentionality in the curricular design of the Gateway Education programme.
