澳門理工學院“第十一屆ALICE三維編程比賽”頒獎禮

為助力粵港澳大灣區國際科技創新中心的建設,提升本地資訊科技人才的科研興趣及應用能力,澳門理工學院舉辦“第十一屆ALICE三維編程比賽”,吸引超過300人組成的100支團隊參加,他們來自本澳30所中學及高等院校外,還包括來自社會的在職人士。參賽團隊圍繞特定主題,運用其計算思維、綜合技巧和解難能力,開發編寫相關的電腦3D動畫故事或遊戲。

比賽頒獎禮於7月10日在澳門理工學院舉行,主禮嘉賓包括:國家教材委員會科學委員會專家北京航空航天大學教授熊璋、郵電局行政委員會委員葉頌華、倫敦大學瑪麗皇后學院教授Laurie Cuthbert、教育暨青年局組織暨資訊處處長黎玉燕,以及澳門理工學院公共行政高等學校校長謝丹嬋。

今年,比賽主題為“慶祝澳門回歸祖國20周年",參賽團隊以不同形式表達對澳門回歸祖國20年來,澳門經濟急速發展和社會文化轉變的感受,例如:港珠澳大橋的順利開通、澳門市政建設的進一步完善、澳門融入粵港澳大灣區的前景、參與“一帶一路"建設等,充分反映了其對澳門回歸祖國的喜悅之情,以及對未來發展的美好期望。

成為熱門編程比賽推動科創發展

自2008 年起,澳門理工學院每年均舉辦“全澳資訊科技大賽——ALICE三維編程比賽”,參加人數至今已累積超過3,000人次,成爲了本地最熱門的電腦編程比賽之一。澳門理工學院喜見中學生因參賽而對電腦編程產生更大興趣,升學時選擇修讀電腦編程相關專業,比賽亦對持續提升市民對資訊科技的興趣及應用能力,以及推進資訊科技在澳門的發展和普及,發揮積極的作用。

在電腦動畫製作過程中,參賽團隊需要對主題背景有充分的研究,並具備美術創作、配樂、敘事等技能,才能順利地完成作品。通過比賽,能培養學生在科學丶科技丶工程丶藝術、數學(STEAM)技術領域的綜合能力。參賽學生靈活應用了ALICE軟體平台的各種模型資料庫來編寫3D電腦程式,並通過團隊合作,提高其解決複雜問題的能力。從今屆比賽中可見,參賽團隊準備充足,在比賽中以話劇、舞蹈、遊戲等多元形式,生動展示其作品,其認真的學習態度值得讚賞。

提供培訓體驗增長專業知識

在歷屆比賽中,澳門理工學院電腦學課程均會提供免費的培訓課程,讓參賽者在學習比賽相關技術的同時,體驗澳門理工學院的學習環境,拓寬視野。有參賽中學的指導老師表示,該項比賽提供了良好的交流平台,有助提升學生對資訊科技的興趣。澳門理工學院還邀請外地權威專家,對參賽者的程式演示進行評審,以提高其專業知識,從而使其獲取更多寶貴的參賽經驗。

今屆比賽的中學組大奬得主為聖保祿學校司徒俊明、饒駿賢及姚懿航,作品是《你可知Macau不是我真姓》;二等奬由聖羅撒英文中學黃曉妍、陳曉嵐及湯汶穎獲得;最具創意獎由勞工子弟學校吳詠熙、黃寶儀及鄧洋洋獲得。今屆新設的明日之星奬,則由菜農子弟學校施柏賢、梁嘉敏及洪偉豪獲得。優異獎分別由嘉諾撒聖心英文中學、廣大中學、勞工子弟學校及聖保祿學校的參賽團隊獲得。公開組大奬得主為梁駿豪、周曉峰及張嘉宏,作品是《傅承》;二等奬由盧偉科及許妮達獲得。兩組大獎得主分別在頒獎典禮現場,演示了其得獎作品,獲得在場人士的讚賞。

Our teachers presented their research achievements in the 10th Higher Education International Conference on Innovation and Developments in Teaching and Learning Quality Assurance

In order to explore the development in teaching and learning in countries along the Belt and Road countries and other regions, to share the developments in higher education quality assurance and facilitate the enhancement of quality in higher education in Macao, Macao Polytechnic Institute once again joined forces with the Asia-Pacific Quality Network (APQN) to organise the 10th Higher Education International Conference on Innovation and Developments in Teaching and Learning Quality Assurance. Over 40 experts and scholars in higher education coming from the United Kingdom, Portugal, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, the Philippines, Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao and other countries and regions gathered in Macao to explore factors affecting the quality of higher education, and share the trends and developments in the quality assurance in teaching and learning. 
Our two teachers presented their research achievements in the conference and the details are as follows: 

An Assessment of the Effectiveness of an Integrated Outcome-based Curriculum for Developing Research and Project Skills in Computing

While project-based learning (PBL) is an established teaching method to cultivate engineering students, many students have encountered difficulties. This is particularly serious in the Final Year Project commonly found in the last year of study of undergraduate degrees. To better prepare our students to take up the FYP challenge, the Computing programme of Macao Polytechnic Institute has implemented an integrated outcome–based curriculum for developing research and project skills. In this paper, we evaluated the effective of this curriculum using a semi-structured exit interview. Two major research questions are (1) what were the challenges that the recent cohort had actually encountered? (2) What are the factors contributing to the effectiveness of this curriculum? Using stratified sampling, 12 out of 46 students were invited to participate and a thematic analysis was made on the interview transcript. The findings show that the curriculum has supported the students the most in technical reading and writing. The FYP has also strengthened the technical knowledge acquired in previous courses. However, more efforts are required to improve students’ self-study and time management skills.

An Evaluation of the Year Tutor System in the Computing Programme at the Macao Polytechnic Institute

The transition from high school to higher education is a dramatic experience for students. In order to assist students to adapt themselves for their college lives, the Computing Programme at the Macau Polytechnic Institute (MPI) has organised a year tutor system for them. In the very beginning of Year 1, each computing student is assigned to a member of academic staff, i.e. a year tutor, for the duration of the 4-year programme. The objectives of the year tutor system are to offer students support with their academic development and personal guidance, including scheduled and ad hoc meetings; monitoring of progress; personal assistance; and directing students to seek additional support if necessary.
The study focused on the factors that influenced the year tutor system experience. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the year tutor system and discuss the essential factors for success.

Computing Students’ Cultural and Educational Visit in Singapore

During the 4-days visit in Singapore, which took place in November 15-18 of 2018, students from the 2nd and the 3rd year of the Computing Program had the opportunity to tour the campus and the research facilities of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore polytechnic. A visit to a world-class university such as NTU has widened the horizon of the students, particularly in terms of the entrepreneurial spirit and the advancement of information technology fostered by the university and the government of Singapore. The students were also well received by the local representative of NTU and Singapore polytechnic, who expounded the rationale of the Singapore education system and addressed issues regarding professional development and studies in Singapore.

Following the visit to Singapore universities, the students then had the opportunity to visit other cultural places, such as the National Museum of Singapore and the Merlion Park. The overall experience has been both rewarding and valuable for our students in shaping their global-wise technological visions and furthering their studies in information technology.

“中國青少年科技創新獎”是內地青少年科技創新領域最崇高的榮譽獎項,目的為激發青少年的創新精神,培養創新人材。經全國各地區推薦,並經評審委員會嚴格審定,最終一百名在科技創新實踐方面取得優異成績,並彰顯了熱愛科學、樂於探究精神的優秀青少年學生獲此殊榮。

澳門唯一獲獎人、澳門理工學院電腦學學生林彩月表示,能從全國評審中脫穎而出,成為六名港澳台及海外地區獲獎學生之一、澳門唯一的獲獎學生,感到光榮和興奮。林彩月曾多次代表理工學院參加本地及國內外科技大賽並屢屢獲獎,包括第七屆全澳資訊科技大賽─ALICE三維程式設計比賽公開組二等獎、2015年泛珠三角大學生計算器作品賽總決賽銅獎、2017年獲總決賽銀獎、第二屆中國“互聯網+”大學生創新創業大賽全國總決賽銀獎、克羅地亞發明家協會舉辦的第十二屆學生發明和原型展示商業計劃競賽金獎等。林彩月認為,自小對科學知識及電腦軟體創作有濃厚興趣,而澳門理工為自己提供了深度學習和實踐的平台。林彩月感謝理工學院的老師對其諄諄教誨和栽培,讓她在良好的學習環境和優質教學中,不斷提升自身的專業能力。

澳門理工學院堅持以學生為本,質量立校,為學生提供與國際接軌的優質課程,辦學定位準確,學科專業具有顯著的競爭力。理工電腦學課程已通過英國工程技術學會(IET)的學術評審,是為培養理論與實踐並重的科技專才而設的優質學位課程。除修讀課程設置的“企業資訊系統”、“電腦教育”等大量專業科目外,學生還可透過參加機器翻譯、電腦動畫、機器人、IPv6、三維編程等科研項目進行創作和實踐,從而掌握不同範疇的專業技術,參加地區及國際級比賽,成為資訊科技行業的專才,服務澳門社會同時,並助力國家及粵港澳大灣區的發展,努力成長為推動新時代科技創新的棟樑之才。
