Series of Service-Learning (S-L) Workshops for Academic Staff

Description: Being highlighted in the CUHK 2025 Strategic Plan, Service-Learning (S-L) is a three-win situation for the university, students, and community. Service-learning allows students and teachers to apply their knowledge and skills to meet the community’s needs and gaining further understanding of course content and improvements in the pedagogy design in return. As credit-bearing service learning courses is one of the major foci in the upcoming university policy and will be put into the compulsory undergraduate requirement in the long term, equipping teachers and faculty members with sufficient S-L knowledge is of utmost importance in promoting S-L as well as putting different enormous ideas of S-L into practice.
