Guidance and resources to support HKBU faculty developing and teaching GE courses



The liberally educated person is one who is able to resist the easy and preferred answers, not because he is obstinate but because he knows others worthy of consideration.

Allan Bloom 1930–92 American writer and educator: The Closing of the American Mind (1987)


Hello and welcome! The purpose of this guide is to highlight resources from the University Library and beyond that may be of potential use in the development of GE courses by faculty at HKBU.

These lists are not meant to be exhaustive, but are instead intended to serve as a starting point. I do hope that you draw some inspiration for your teaching from the material provided here. Please also feel free to let me know if you have recommendations for resources to include in this guide.
