這報告旨在匯報香港中文大學和澳洲墨爾本大學在合作發展計算機科學的“離散優化建模”慕課過程中所用的創新教學法和相關經驗，概括而言，這個慕課的特點就是一個故事為本的學習模式，也就是把難題為本學習安放在連貫的故事情節內的形式。 自2017年起，這幕課已反覆在Coursera上播出，我們會匯報一些統計數字和反應，也會詳細講解香港中文大學在翻轉課堂的環境里采用網上教材的經驗和初步觀察。 這個嶄新的教學法旨在提升學生的學習動機以及把學生放置在一個連貫的學習語境中，除了編寫劇本、制作動畫和把教材融入故事情節外，這項目的另一個挑戰就是兩所參予大學之間的遙遠距離以及可能出現的文化差異。另外，所有教材都要制作成中文(普通話) 和英語版本以滿足不同地域的學習需要。 每一課的視頻都是以基于中國經典小說“三國演義”制作的動畫為開端，故事的主角會遇上難題，需要通過神仙賜贈的神奇法板，向兩位現代教授尋求協助。
Jimmy Lee received both his BMath (Hons) and MMath degrees at the University of Waterloo, and completed his doctoral studies at the University of Victoria. Upon graduation, he joined The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), where he is now Assistant Dean (Education) in the Faculty of Engineering and Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. His research focuses on the theory and practice of constraint satisfaction and optimization with applications in
scheduling, resource allocation, and combinatorial problems. During 2017-18, Jimmy joined hand with Peter Stuckey to develop and launch a series of MOOCs on Coursera in both Chinese and English on modeling and solving discrete optimization problems using the Fantasy-based Learning approach, and received good feedbacks from the learners' community. Jimmy is a two-time recipient (2004 and 2015) of the CUHK Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award and was bestowed in 2017 the CUHK University Education Award, the highest honour in education at CUHK.
Jimmy is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research and on the editorial boards of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research, the Artificial Intelligence Review, and Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning. He was on the editorial board of the CONSTRAINTS journal and of the Journal of Discrete Algorithms. He was a founding editor of the Constraint Programming News, an elected member of the Executive Committee of the Association for Constraint Programming during 2006-09, and the Secretary of the Association from 2006 to 2012. He is a Program Vice-Chair of the Sub-Conference on Learning Science and Computer-Assisted Collaborative Learning of GCCCE 2019, a Senior PC member of 28th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2019), and a PC member of the 25th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2019).
