This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the inauguration of Service-Learning at Lingnan. To celebrate the fruits of Service-Learning and further promote this pedagogical tool, the University will organize a series of symposiums focusing on faculty, community, students and regional partnership respectively.
With the support from Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Business and Faculty of Social Sciences, the Service-Learning Symposium 1 with the theme “Faculty Engagement and Service Learning” was held on 27 October. It attracted around 100 participants from local tertiary institutions, overseas universities and regional organizations, and successfully created a platform for exchange of experience in Service-Learning.
Prof Robert Bringle, a renowned Service-Learning scholar from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, delivered an impressive keynote speech on “Enhancing Faculty Work through Community Engagement”. His speech gave participants valuable insight into how faculty members implement Service-Learning and empower their students and the community.
