建議中的香港課程改革:充滿矛盾、欠缺專業

The Proposed Curriculum Reform of Hong Kong — Full of Contradictions, Short of Professionalism

林智中(Chi-Chung LAM)

摘要

因應教育統籌委員會提出的教育改革訴求,課程發展處宣佈了一系列的課程改革方案。本文指出部分改革措施,如學習範疇的劃分、目標藍圖的制定與校本課程等,均欠學理基礎,同時有些措施是矛盾的,在實施上也有很大的問題,例如:資源的配套與考試改革的配合等。作為一個專業的課程發展機構,課程發展處應在設計課改方案時,詳細考慮改革措施的學理基礎與可行性等問題。同時,這些有問題的改革措施並未經驗證成效,貿然推出是有不道德之嫌。本文最後指出課改的速度應減慢,宜先作小規模嘗試,當確定效能後,才再全面推行。

關鍵詞:課程改革;香港;教育改革

Abstract

The Curriculum Development Institute has announced a series of curriculum reform measures to realize the aims of educational reform as put forward by the Education Commission. This paper points out that some of these curriculum reform measures are problematic from both the design and the implementation perspectives. The issues discussed include the problem of designing curriculum targets, the implementation of curriculum integration, school-based curriculum development, and the resource support for curriculum reform. The Curriculum Development Institute, being the professional curriculum development agency, should have seriously considered all these design and implementation problems before putting them forward. Promulgating problematic reform measures without extensive trial run could be seen as an immoral move. It is argued that the pace of current curriculum reform should be slowed down so that the measures could be thoroughly tried out before they are implemented on a territory-wide scale.
