Abstract

In recent years, our staff have noticed that most year-one students were not competent to perform experiments. One of the reasons might be due to the discontinuation of the previous A-Level Practical Examination after adopting the Teacher Assessment Scheme (TAS) in secondary schools. In order to compensate for this deficiency, a three-day "Bridging Workshop" was proposed for the year-one biology students. In this workshop, the students had a chance to expose themselves to basic practical skills through a series of learning activities, such as brief lectures, practical classes, demonstrations and field trip. At the end of the workshop, an assessment was carried out to measure the learning outcome of the students.
