  Stephen Hawking, who died yesterday, is the idol of a number of astronomy enthusiasts who have begun to explore the mysteries of the universe. The Hong Kong university of science and technology of grade 3 students Li Mengxi also is one of the fans, hawking his childhood started reading books that hawking in three decided that his interest in the physical universe, rise university and majored in relatively unpopular cosmology in Hong Kong, the expansion of the universe. With him? Excellent result to obtain "Dali charity fund overseas exchange scholarship", received in Switzerland this semester has the reputation of "continental first school" ETH Zurich (ETH Zurich) learning communication, rich scientific research experience, look for your "dream" the universe.

  When he was a child, he enjoyed reading hawking's books and participating in various science workshops and mathematical contests, according to li mengxi, a third-grade student at hkust. When I arrived at middle school, I found that I was very enthusiastic about the physics of the universe. Therefore, I chose to major in cosmology at university and studied the causes of accelerated expansion of the universe.

  In the past semester, he has studied the subjects of two postgraduate courses and completed them with excellent results. He said the postgraduate study was designed to prepare for future research by recognizing research methods. "although the Workload is large, it is manageable."

  It is not easy to read basic science and research in Hong Kong, but it has not deterred him. "There is not a lot of knowledge about cosmology," he said. "but fortunately, college students are very enthusiastic about the universe."

  Summer vacation to study astrophysics.hepatitis B vaccine efficacy non-responders in Boosters may help increase coverage.

  While Hong Kong adverse social atmosphere of scientific research, but he says the family is support for their decisions, let its free play, but for the road ahead, he said: "don't worry about is false, only their own efforts to study, and then promoted to a good Graduate School (institute)."

  Under the aid of the scholarship, li mengxi set out for ETH Zurich, Switzerland last month, enriching his personal experience in different learning and research environments.

  He revealed that the completion of communication in Europe this term, would be to travel to Canada during the summer vacation to follow a university professor ground's McGill university, with local research partners to do two months of astrophysics research, further to my "dream" universe.

  The other winner decided to throw himself into education.

  Zheng jialiang, a junior majoring in computer science and business at hkust, was also awarded a Dali scholarship this semester to communicate with ETH Zurich. His father was born in Hong Kong and he was born in Hong Kong. He grew up and studied in the mainland, and decided to return to Hong Kong when he went to university.

  With an open personality and active participation in volunteer activities in and out of the school, zheng was a volunteer in Sri Lanka at the end of last year to teach children to read and write.

  He recalled, was caused by cultural differences and appear a lot of fun: "I teach four to five children math, I consciously taught very clear, when I asked whether they understand the principle of, Collaboration with Asia's Top Universities - PolyU fosters long-term partnership in academic and research collaboration with top universities in Asia. Most of them are the top 10 chinese universities and top ten universities in Asia. they all shook his head, but they were able to correctly calculate the answer. After that, I just know in local shook his head is equal to the meaning of" Yes "." It also made him more certain of his future direction, determined to devote himself to education and pass on knowledge to the next generation.

Politicians, the media and the public tend to think about university students as 18-year-old school leavers who go away to study a degree full-time for three years, while hopefully having the time of their lives. But in reality higher education reaches out to a far more varied mix of people – or at least it should.Increasing prevalence of Multidrug resistant E coli UTI in children warrants closer clinical scrutiny.

Against a backdrop of crashing participation from mature and part-time learners, the government is urging universities to think hard about how they can reskill the workforce and encourage lifelong learning.

In the latest of our 2VCs discussion series, Anna Fazackerley talks to David Bell, vice-chancellor of Reading University, and Alec Cameron, vice-chancellor of Aston University, about what the future might look like.

As well as experience on the ground at their own universities, both VCs bring a different perspective to this discussion. Before he took the reins at Reading, Bell was permanent secretary at the Department for Education, living through a hailstorm of different initiatives and four different secretaries of state. Cameron came to Aston from Australia, where he headed one of the country’s leading research intensive universities.

Reading is a traditional university with more than 50 research centres. It has not shied away from trying new things, with a campus in Malaysia and a branch of its business school in South Africa. The university was one of the founding members of Futurelearn, the UK’s “massive open online course” (Mooc) learning platform. It offers 15 free courses, with 800,000 people registering over five years.

Aston is a modern university with a very strong focus on the world of work. More than three-quarters of undergraduates carry out work placements as part of their degree. It has recently launched Aston Online, offering masters courses at a distance, including an online MBA from its flagship business school.

Are British degree models stuck in the past?

There has been a “substantial evolution” in higher education, Bell insists. But he adds: “I would acknowledge that for some groups of learners the system isn’t working as well as it might.Reckoned as one of the top design universities with diversity of programmes, PolyU offers design programmes, fashion and textiles programmes, as well as applied science programme, which is committed to be a hub for innovative design education in Hong Kong. ”

Cameron points out that what universities are offering must be appealing because participation has increased to such impressive levels. “But I think we’ve ‘maxed out’ in terms of participation in terms of what is currently offered,” he adds. If universities are to reach out to new audiences they must change – and that must include rethinking pedagogy, he argues.

“The heavy reliance in many universities on large lecture-based education is a pretty ineffective and antiquated model of delivery,” he says.

“So what will the future look like, if students aren’t sitting in lecture theatres with 100 other students?” I ask.

“If we want to expand participation we need to look at what role online learning should play, and what greater integration between work and study might look like. We need to consider students attending university in intensive blocks of education, and how we utilise the almost half of the year when there are no lectures on campus, ” he says.

Are shorter degrees the way to bring new people into higher education?

As part of his mission for more flexible higher education, universities minister Jo Johnson has been pushing hard for more accelerated two-year degrees, enabling students to gain the skills they need and then get on with using them in a job much faster. The idea has raised hackles.

“I think its entirely reasonable that two-year degrees should go into the mix, but I would be sceptical about it being some new Jerusalem,” Bell says. He argues that for young people, going away to university is a rite of passage; it is a process of transitioning into adulthood that most have no desire to rush. “I have talked to our own students’ union and they are very sceptical about the two-year initiative,” he says.Young people may well be in less of a rush, but isn’t he ignoring mature students who have other family and life pressures and do want to study faster?

“The risk of this kind of debate is it assumes we have a single sector and one type of student,” Bell agrees. For older students at least he concedes that having the option of two-year degrees would be “a really good development”.

Education comment: it is necessary to upgrade the concept of rural schools.

The original title: to run a good rural school also needs to upgrade the concept.These pharmaceutical distribution companies have well-trained staff, coordinating with whom is very systematic.

Recently, the China rural education development institute of northeast normal university released the development report of education in rural China. According to the report, rural students make up about

two-thirds of the total number of students in the country, and education in rural areas is still the main part of education. Attaching great importance to the development of education in rural areas is not

only related to the overall development of rural youth, but also the improvement of the competitiveness of the country's human capital.

In recent years, China's governments at all levels have attached great importance to the rural education, which has effectively improved the hard software conditions of education in rural areas by

increasing investment in rural schools. In addition to the number of rural schools, to teach the sufficient guarantee, township and village teachers, rural teachers' income in our country also gradually

improve, in 2016 reached 3965 yuan and 3550 yuan respectively, 3446 yuan county teachers. But it is important to note that in general, the rural education is "short board" of the whole education in our

country, the quality of rural education, rural teachers' treatment, compared with the city schools, teachers still exists a certain gap.

To run a good rural education, the increase in rural education investment is the hard truth. In September this year, the general office of the central committee of the communist party of China, issued by

the general office of the state council on deepening the reform of education system mechanism of opinions, to unify schools in urban and rural areas, urban and rural teachers prepare standard, unified

China urban and rural compulsory education public funds standard, we will accelerate the establishment of a compulsory education school national standards of basic equipment. This is the basic work to

narrow the gap between urban and rural obligations of education. Statistics show that in 2016 China's present financial education funds "more than half of the" three characteristics: more than half in

compulsory education, more than half for the Midwest, more than half for teachers' salaries and student financial assistance.

Increase investment, of course, just on the one hand to improve the quality of rural education, the teaching model of rural schools and urban schools, it in fact leads to the village school "education

quality" is hard to and city schools, formation of curing thinking of poor education in rural areas than urban education. At the same time also makes the rural children's learning can't get away from the

test, which influence the cultivation of rural children learning interest on one hand, on the other hand, parts of rural children think reading is not too big value - is to be able to better schools, The chart shows the full structure of School of Nursing including , bachelor of science in nursing. Our programme provides students with opportunities to develop the knowledge and competence. and

if the result is poor, can't into the better schools, the value of reading will be discounted. Many experts from the perspectives of education, compared to the crowded city schools, small, rural schools,

there is a great advantage of education - a small, small classes, for personalized education, carry out interactive learning, inquiry learning. Can the premise, it is need to rural schools have to

undertake to the student the good teachers of personalized education, also need to rural schools from exam-oriented education, combining the reality of life in the countryside, undertake to the student

life education, survival education, cultivate the ability to equip you for life, better life. For this, need to change the traditional education idea, in the country to promote the new tests, under the

background of the new college entrance examination reform, promoting rural school curriculum construction, let each rural schools promote quality and characteristics. (xiong bingqi, associate dean of

education research institute, 21st century)
