Access the Course Syllabus

What is the course about?

This is an Experiential Learning Course.

In this course, students identify a social problem facing our local/global society and conduct research to develop insightful and persuasive arguments on this issue. They will share their findings with stakeholders (e.g. the HK government and the public) by writing letters and opinion pieces in the media, submitting reports to the government, and engaging members of the community through online and offline outreach activities. Experiential teaching and learning activities in this course, such as flipped classrooms, seminar discussions with leading figures across HK society, and field trips, will guide and inspire students to become highly motivated researchers/activists, working towards the betterment of society and the public good.
