Course Description

For students entering Year 2 or above, this course intends to offer students the fundamental concepts of service-learning – an approach in which students could utilise their academic knowledge and skills to address community needs. Throughout the course, students would be equipped with the essential skill set and mindset to prepare for their upcoming service-learning project (SLP). Apart from designing their service plans, students would become civically informed and engaged citizens of the community.

Learning Outcome

Upon completion of this course, students are expected to be able to:

  • build a better understanding of the community’s needs and real-life situations, particularly those related to the selected SDGs of No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Reducing Inequality, and Climate Action;
  • demonstrate the ability to evaluate, synthesise and create new knowledge and ideas in response to real-world challenges;
  • raise self-awareness in expressing their own emotions, feelings and experiences; enhance their sense of empathy, social responsibility, and commitment to caring for other stakeholders in the community;
  • exchange insights and knowledge through multi-disciplinary group work
