Education Studies scholars obtain Quality Education Fund for Intergenerational Learning Community project

教育學者獲優質教育基金撥款推動社區跨代學習社群

Professor Atara Sivan, Head of the Department of Education Studies and Associate Head Professor Vicky Tam received a HK$1.9 million grant for their Quality Education Fund (QEF) project entitled: “Promoting Positive Youth Development through School-University-Elderly Learning community”. 

The two-year project, involving active participation of HKBU students and staff, secondary school students and teachers and older adults in the community, aims at promoting youth development and cultivating their sense of belonging and positive social values through collaborative intergenerational engagement in issues of healthy living and well-being. 

The QEF project builds on the success of an earlier project, namely “Building learning community through a transdisciplinary multi-layered approach”, which has been carried out since 2013 and supported by HKBU’s Strategic Development Fund. Drawing on its unique learning community model, the project integrates action learning and service learning approaches. 

In view of the keen competition for QEF, Professor Sivan and Professor Tam view their successful application as recognition from the Government of the intergenerational learning community model developed at HKBU. They regard it as a great opportunity to further enhance HKBU’s mission of whole person education and wish to thank the Faculty of Social Sciences and the University for their support, making this important and invaluable undertaking possible.

教育學系系主任蘇秀冠教授及副系主任譚肖芸教授獲優質教育基金撥款港幣190萬元推動項目「建立學校、大學、長者學習社群 促進青少年正面發展」。

這個為期兩年的項目,獲浸大學生、教職員、中學生、教師及長者的積極參與,透過一系列跨代參與的健康生活項目,以推動青少年發展、培育其歸屬感及正面社會價值觀。

項目是根據蘇秀冠教授於2013年推展的「長幼同樂計劃」基礎發展而來。「長幼同樂計劃」將行動及服務學習的精粹結合,成為獨特的學習社群模式,並獲浸大策略性發展基金支持。

優質教育基金申請競爭激烈,蘇秀冠教授及譚教授認為能夠成功爭取撥款,不但是政府肯定浸大在推展跨代學習社群的成就,更是一個難得的機會強化浸大全人教育理念。她們感謝社會科學院及大學的大力支持,使計劃得以實踐。
