HKBU students shine in higher education research symposium


Three HKBU student teams scooped the Championship, Award of Merit, and Participation Award for their outstanding performance in the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) Symposium held in August. They were selected among 11 competing teams from seven higher education institutions to receive the awards.

In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, the HERDSA Hong Kong Branch launched an award scheme for students. Through the process of proposing and carrying out projects under the theme of “Redesigning Student Learning Experience in Higher Education”, students gained an opportunity to share their needs, ideas and views on optimal arrangements of university education.

A team of eight HKBU students won the Championship with their service learning project entitled “Promoting Integrative Learning through Gansu Sustainable Service”. Using an e-portfolio, they presented their learning experience in a two-week Gansu service programme. The Award of Merit went to another group of HKBU students. The four members studied the global issue of street sleepers in their project entitled “More Love and Care for the Homeless (Street Sleepers)”. Meanwhile, the project “Safe to Survive: Nuclear or Others?” which was carried out by six HKBU students received the Participation Award. They drew up a series of learning activities aimed at inspiring today’s youngsters and cultivating a global mindset.

The Symposium was co-organised by HERDSA Hong Kong Branch and the Educational Development Centre at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. For details, please visit:
