浸大學生參與跨世代學習社群啟導中學生

“Promoting Positive Youth Development through School-University-Elderly”, the learning community project organised by the Department of Education Studies (EDUC), has entered into its second action learning cycle. Earlier, EDUC hosted a kick-off ceremony to welcome more than 100 participating students and teachers from eight secondary schools.  
 
Funded by the Quality Education Fund and led by Professor Atara Sivan, Acting Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Professor Vicky Tam, Acting Head of EDUC, the project aims at enhancing positive youth development through shared engagement in issues of healthy living and well-being and active participation in a tri-party intergenerational learning community.  
 
Over 10 HKBU students from different faculties and countries served as mentors to participating secondary school students. Through this project, HKBU students played a significant role in conducting a series of mini-workshops for the youngsters. 
 
Representatives of the project team and participating elderly community centres induced students to learn about the action learning principles and work with older adults. The event concluded with a sharing by HKBU and secondary school students about their learning experience with older adults and their aspiration to continue their community engagement and knowledge transfer activities.

教育學系推動的「長幼同行成長路計劃」經已踏入第二屆,早前特別舉行開展儀式迎接來自八所中學、百多名參與計劃的學生及教師。
 
「長幼同行成長路計劃」由社會科學院署理院長蘇冠秀教授及教育學系署理系主任譚肖芸教授帶領,並獲優質教育基金資助。計劃為長者、大學生、中學生共建三代的學習平台,使各方能積極討論,並參與以健康人生為題的活動,促進青少年正向發展。
 
浸大十多名不同學系及不同國家的學生在計劃中擔任「大哥哥、大姐姐」角色,為中學生舉辦了一連串的小型工作坊。計劃團隊成員及參與計劃的老人社區中心代表向學生介紹行動學習原則、為老年人設計活動時需要注意的事項,而參與計劃的浸大同學及中學生亦分享向長者學習的體驗,並表示未來會繼續參與社區服務及相關的知識轉移活動。
