摘要

在現代社會,風險管理的概念主要應用在經濟和金融事務上,亦有應用在醫學、工程及其他危險性高的工作上。它是利用統計學和或然率計算某些事情出現的機率,以及出現之後所產生的影響。風險管理的概念可以應用在教育範疇上,為師生的安全和學生的學習成果提供更大保障。本文提出風險矩陣工具,幫助學校在實踐風險管理時,能更有效推行學生事務的管理工作。風險矩陣可以幫助學校計算學生以至班級層面所面對的風險,讓校方及早作出適當的安排及對策。文章亦列舉了兩個例子,解釋風險矩陣如何幫助學校處理學生事務問題。

Abstract

In the modern society, concepts of risk management is mainly applied to economic and financial spheres, and the concepts have also been applied to medical, engineering, and other high-risk areas. Risk management employs techniques in statistics and probability to calculate the chances of occurrence of certain events, and the impacts when the events actually occur. Concepts of risk management may be applied to education, to provide better assurance of the safety of teachers and students, as well as the learning outcomes of students. The present article uses a risk matrix tool to help schools carry out student management more effectively. Risk matrix enables schools to assess the risk faced by students or classes, so that schools can provide appropriate supports and interventions to the concerned parties at an early stage. This article uses two examples to illustrate how risk matrix is applied to manage student affairs issues.
