Georgetown Pre-College Online Program

Posted by heo

Georgetown University

Georgetown University is a strong believer the value of mentorship

Mentors are an essential part of Georgetown University’s new Pre-College Online Program.

At Georgetown, we believe high school students should be supported as they explore their interests. When they enroll in one of our new online, pre-college courses, each student is assigned a mentor who helps guide the learning experience. Mentors are Georgetown students and alumni who are well-versed in the subject area of the course.

Mentors also answer questions about majors and careers in the field. They help with brainstorming and assignments.

This commitment to providing support for students is at the heart of the Georgetown approach. We follow the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis—care for the whole person—and our goal with this new program is to provide a holistic experience. Students deserve the opportunity to develop their own talents and dreams, and this program will help them do that.

Please share this link with your students.

Current courses offered:

Law: How to Think Like an Attorney

High school students are given an inside look at the profession. They practice creating evidence-based arguments, analyzing information, and discerning fact from opinion. Topics covered offer a good background for potential college majors and career paths related to law.

Medical Research: Clinical Trials Resulting in Medical Discoveries

High school students learn the processes researchers use to formulate and conduct studies, as well as evaluate the evidence gathered. Topics covered offer a good background for potential college majors and career paths related to STEM, medical research, pharmacology, and biostatistics.

 

Two Key Advantages for Students
  • Flexible learning: Course lessons are delivered by renowned professors through dynamic videos, allowing students to study anytime that fits their schedule.
  • Certificate of Completion from Georgetown University: High school students earn this recognition when they finish the course successfully.

[HKU] ‘A New Animal Welfare Law for Hong Kong’ Talk Invitation

Posted by heo

http://147.8.205.55/edm/images/admin/164186933_2772454189638908_8550716310004992948_n.jpg
Dear Student,

In 2010, Associate  Professor Amanda Whitfort of the Law Faculty and Dr Fiona Woodhouse of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA HK) published the HKU-SPCA Review of Animal Welfare Legislation in Hong Kong, recommending a new Animal Welfare Law with a duty of care in replacement of the existing Cap 169, the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Ordinance.

In response to the report, the government amended Cap 139B to introduce a duty of care for dogs in commercial breeding. Nevertheless, Whitfort’s research continues to indicate that only with the full replacement of Cap 169 with a new Animal Welfare Law will Hong Kong be in a position to adequately address the instances of cruelty and poisonings which have continued over the last decade.

The Hong Kong government is now acting on Whitfort’s research again and is in the process of amending Cap 169. Whitfort will present the implications of a new duty of care for Hong Kong’s animals, and, together with former HKU student Aaron Tong, explore why welfare standards form the baseline for effective animal protection in any jurisdiction where animal cruelty is taken seriously.

Join our talk in May to ponder over the importance of a new animal welfare law for Hong Kong.

 

Date: May 14, 2021 (Friday) 

Time: 1630-1730

Language: English

Speakers: Amanda Whitfort and Aaron Tong
