【從生物之海到心智之海】
      曾經為了全國唯一的潛水課,選擇了中山大學海洋資源系就讀,誤打誤撞開啟了對研究熱情的焦傳金老師,被問到「如果當時沒有成為學者,會想從事什麼工作」時,饒有興味地回答:「我會去當導遊。因為導遊可以接觸有趣的新事物,還可以引領別人接觸這些東西!」抱持著永無止盡的求知精神與教學上的使命感,焦傳金老師執教十年來,三度榮獲傑出教學獎,焦老師於101學年度開設的「腦與心智」通識更是有300名學生選修的熱門課程。雖然未能成為遊山玩水的導遊,焦老師引領莘莘學子進入海生世界的「學術導遊」功力卻總令學生折服。
 
“If you did not become a scholar, what would you like to do for living?” we asked Prof. Chuan-Chin Chiao, who chose to study Department of Marine Biotechnology and Resources in NSYSU because of the only diving course in Taiwan, and accidentally developed his enthusiasm about research. He interestingly replied, “I would be a tour guide because a tour guide can explore many intriguing things and lead others to find them as well!” With endless desire of knowledge and a mission to teach, Prof. Chiao has been awarded the excellent teacher of NTHU three times in the past ten years. The course, Brain and Mind, was one of the hottest classes and was taken by 300 students in 2012. Although he cannot become a tour guide, his students cannot help but admire his guiding ability to lead students to the world of ocean.

 
 
 
 

【用「機關槍」啟動大腦神秘之鑰】
      如果資源無限,最想知道的問題,果然還是「大腦如何運作!」從海洋生物學到腦神經系統的學術殿堂,焦傳金老師秉持著對研究的終極關懷,開設的通識課「腦與心智」,主要帶學生探討腦與心智(Brain and Mind)的關連性。課程逐週從感覺與知覺開始、包括注意力與情緒、決策與執行,以及理性與感性、選擇&決策、智力與創造力、發育&可塑性等議題。課前先播放一段主題影片及理論,再帶入每週議題,即使無相關知識背景,也能透過影片及科學人雜誌等期刊論文逐步入門。充實的課程內容,加上老師有邏輯的講課風格,總讓學生趨之若鶩。

    每到期末教學意見調查時,關於老師內容充實、講課嚴謹有效率的好評總是蜂擁而至,然而也有同學覺得老師講課速度太快,簡直就像機關槍一樣,條理分明、每槍都能快狠準地正中要害,讓學生以最有效率的方式吸收知識。焦傳金老師也坦承,基礎課程的範圍很廣、發展得快,剛開始備課的確辛苦、壓力很大。透過不斷的修正與進步,偏快的講課速度不僅成為焦傳金老師的個人特色,也印證了焦老師將增進教學內容和教課方式視為新的挑戰,兢兢業業的態度。
 
If resource was infinite, what people want to know would still be the operation of brain. From marine biology to neuroscience, Prof. Chiao is always strongly concerned about his research. His GE course, Brain and Mind, mainly focuses on leading students to explore the relation between brain and mind. The course will begin with Sensation and Perception, including Attention and Emotion, Decision-making and Execution, as well as rationality and sensitivity, Option and Decision-making, intelligence and creativity, development and malleability. The teacher will play a video and introduce a theory at first, and then discuss the issue of the week. Even those who have no biological background can also be gradually involved in the lesson through videos and journal articles from Scientific American. Substantial lessons and the teacher’s logical teaching style always attract a sea of students.


 
 
 
 
【課後園地:科普好書推薦】
      焦傳金老師的課程除了態度與熱情外,還有一大特色,就是每堂課後由老師嚴選的優質好書推薦。雖然說是「好書」,但可不是冷硬的專業書籍,也沒有磚頭般的厚度,而是從科學人等雜誌中取材,以平均4-9頁輕鬆好讀的科普題材,揭露環繞著大腦機能發生的種種有趣知識。包括眼睛如何看得更清楚、如何挽救新生腦細胞、顏色如何造成錯覺、甚至連「費洛蒙溝通的氣味」都能透過閱讀老師的好書推薦一一解謎。老師認為,大家都該讀讀這些資料,不僅可揭開大腦構造神秘面紗,亦能瞭解如何保護及訓練我們的大腦。先行瞭解大腦老化的過程並做好準備的我們,才能優雅、有尊嚴的老去。
 
In addition to Prof. Chiao’s attitude and enthusiasm, Prof. Chiao’s course features selected nice book recommendation. Those best books are not the cold professional text books as thick as breaks but the materials from Scientific American, which are 4-to-9-page easy articles in associate with a variety of knowledge of brain operation. Students will find the secrets of science by reading the recommended books of which topics include how to see more clearly, how to save newborn brain cell, how colors cause illusion, and even how creatures communicate by pheromone. The teacher believes that students cannot only reveal the veiling of brain but also realize how to protect and train our brains. Those who have understood the ageing mechanism of brain and been prepared can elegantly mature with dignity.
