Abstract

In spite of widespread discussion and criticisms, the Target Oriented Curriculum (TOC) is destined to be implemented in many Hong Kong primary schools. This paper aims to make an attempt in exploring the multifaceted roles of teachers under this curriculum change. A review into the related papers and documents, the principles of learning under TOC and the ways how this initiative is to work in actual practice will be made. By looking critically into the above aspects, some objective criteria concerning the professional qualities and expertise required of TOC teachers are deduced. Some implications of TOC for teacher education are also addressed.

摘要

儘管本地教育界對「目標為本課程」的推出和執行提出不少疑問與批評,此新課程在小學實施已是勢在必行。本文通過回顧有關文獻,探討「目標為本課程」背後的學習理論原理與重點,並分析課程在實際運作時將面對的問題,旨在釐清教師在此課程改革所肩負的多面角色。引伸出若要成功推行新課程,教師必須擁有有別於傳統教學的某些專業特質,從而帶出當前以「目標為本課程」為焦點的教師培訓應注意的地方。
