共膳教育 Communal Meal Education

共膳教育津貼 Communal Meal Participation (CMP) Subsidy

書院與學院協同育人,書院系統以體驗式課程規劃提供全人教育的環境,書院生活的同宿共膳、師友互動的氛圍,扮演着十分重要的育人角色。書院宿生來自不同專業背景,營造了充滿啟發性的環境,讓大家得互相學習,增廣見聞,並且學習如何與不同專業的人共存、合作。書院教育環境鼓勵住在書院的師生一起用膳和交流。爲了實踐 “同宿共膳” 的共膳參與教育理念,大學特意爲書院學生提供定額定量的共膳參與津貼(“Communal Meal Participation” Subsidy 簡稱“CMP” 點數)於指定的書院食堂内使用,學生可以下載 UMRC APP登入個人戶口使用自己的共膳參與津貼,若餐飲費用超過津貼額度,學生需自行直接向食堂膳食服務供應商支付差額。大學希望學生可以善用共膳參與津貼,以達其在書院共膳參與教育之要求及期望(受加建工程影響而沒有書院食堂之院生可向所屬書院辦公室了解有關共膳教育之特別安排)。“共膳參與津貼” 乃教育津貼,學生不可以把自己的津貼變賣、轉贈其他人或利用自己的津貼替他人付款,如發現以上違規情況,書院將按院規嚴肅處理。學生可享受跨書院共膳體驗安排自費用膳。

注意: “共膳津貼” 乃教育津貼,書院住宿費並不包括日常膳食費用。每年的書院住宿費及“共膳津貼” 安排及點數都可能調整,詳情另行公佈。

The collaboration between the residential colleges and the faculty aims to provide a holistic educational environment through experiential curriculum. The communal dining and interactive mentorship atmosphere in residential college life play a crucial role in student development. As residential college residents come from various academic backgrounds, it creates an inspiring environment where everyone can learn from one another, broaden their horizons, and learn how to work and collaborate with individuals from different disciplines. The educational environment of the residential colleges encourages both students and staff living in the college to dine together and engage in conversations. To implement the educational concept of “communal meal participation”, the university offers a designated subsidy called the “Communal Meal Participation Subsidy” (CMP Subsidy) to eligible undergraduate students to use within specified college dining halls (To access to your CMP points, please download UMRC app). If the meal cost exceeds the subsidy amount, students pay for the difference directly to the dining hall service provider. This subsidy is provided to meet the requirements and expectations of communal dining education in the residential colleges. (For residential college residents affected by construction and without access to their own college’s dining hall, they can inquire about special arrangements for communal dining education at their respective college offices.) The CMP Subsidy is an educational allowance, and students are not allowed to sell, transfer, or use their subsidy to pay for others. Any violation of these regulations will be dealt with seriously according to the college rules. Students are responsible for covering their own expenses when participating in inter-college dining experiences.

Note: The CMP subsidy is an educational subsidy and the RC accommodation fee does not include daily meal expenses or other expenses. The RC accommodation fee and the CMP subsidy arrangement are subject to reviews and changes.

澳大住宿式書院鼓勵書院的師生一起用膳和交流。爲了實踐“同宿共膳”的共膳參與教育理念,大學除了特意爲書院院生提供定額定量的共膳津貼 (“Communal Meal Participation Subsidy”  簡稱 “CMP Subsidy”) 外, 還為院生舉辦高桌晚宴(HTD)。高桌晚宴是具有悠久歷史富有教育意義的正式晚宴。在高桌晚宴中,書院成員們穿著正式服裝在書院膳堂參加正式晚宴,書院會邀請學者或擁有傑出人生經驗的嘉賓作為尊貴的演講嘉賓,與書院院生分享他們的成功故事或對社會備受關注的主題發表。作為書院共膳教育的一個重要環節,高桌晚宴這是一種儀式與文化投入相結合的教育方式,大學希望書院院生能夠嚴肅地參與高桌晚宴,熟悉社交和用餐禮儀,提升溝通及交流技巧, 在體驗過後作出學習反饋, 為日後在社會工作作出最好的準備。高桌晚宴是一個重要的書院教育活動,高桌晚宴一般每學期舉辦兩次, 所有書院院生都必須在其本科生涯至少參加一次。

The University of Macau encourages students to have regular exchanges with academic staff members through having meals together in RC dining hall. To implement the communal meal participation education of “living together and eating together,” the university not only provides a fixed amount of “Communal Meal Participation” (CMP) Subsidy for college resident students, colleges also organize High Table Dinner (HTD) for their students. HTD is a formal dinner with a long and significant history, carrying educational significance. During the HTD, members of the college wear formal attire and gather in the college dining hall to partake in a formal dinner. The college extends invitations to scholars or distinguished guests with remarkable life experiences to serve as esteemed keynote speakers, sharing their successful stories or delivering speeches on socially relevant topics. As an integral component of collegiate dining education, the HTD combines ritual and cultural immersion to provide students with a valuable educational experience. The university aims for college residents to actively participate in the HTD, familiarize themselves with social and dining etiquette, enhance their communication and interpersonal skills, and reflect on their learning experience, thus preparing them for their future endeavors in the professional world. The HTD holds great importance as a college educational event and is normally organized twice per semester, with all college residents required to attend at least once during their undergraduate studies.
