|Abstract:||本文主旨探討將品格教育融入英語為外語學習(English as a foreign language—EFL)的大學課程之相關議題。學習英語為外語的教學目標應修正為不僅僅是語言本身的學習，更應是社會、情緒、及道德等各項能力的學習。品格教育的理念在於培養學生個人及公民素養的各種美德，最終目標冀能養成廣納知識、自我負責、與關懷社會的好公民。對進入大學殿堂的大學生而言，個人品格的持續成長應是刻不容緩的事，將品格教育納入大學英文的課程內容中，不僅僅在提昇學生的英語程度，更重要的在於培養學生對社會的關懷、對自我情緒的觀察與管理、對思維方式的鍛鍊、以及建立能納百川的世界觀，這種種能力的培養，都與外語教學中重視跨文化瞭解與欣賞的理念不謀而合。本文將透過文獻回顧，呈現品格教育在傳統課程中的課程設計，並進一步檢視將品格教育運用於EFL教學的必要性與適切性，文中並提出教學實務上的各項建議。|
The current paper addresses the issues of incorporating character education into the college English coursework in the EFL (English as a Foreign Language) context. Character education stems from a mission for all schools and teachers to foster in their students personal and civic virtues. The ultimate goal of character education is to help learners become informed, responsible, and caring citizens. Continuous character growth is all the more necessary for young adults in the university. It is argued that introducing moral education into the EFL curricula would help language learners develop not only their linguistic skills, but also their social awareness, emotional well-being, critical thinking, and a tolerant world view, all of which are congruent with the philosophy of language teaching to promote intercultural appreciation and empathy. This paper will examine the existing literature of character education in mostly primary education contexts and argue for the pressing need of such curriculum in the university EFL settings. Pedagogical guidelines and suggestions concerning the implementation of the university EFL coursework are also included.
