Community of Practice for Service-Learning in Hong Kong Higher Education (CoP-SLHE)
Cross-institutional Capacity Building for Service-Learning in Hong Kong Higher Education Institutions is a UGC-funded project (Project No.: PolyU4/T&L/16-19). It adopts a multifaceted approach that will fill in the gaps and build up capacity in Service-Learning (SL) in Hong Kong Universities. Participating institutions includes The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), The Education University of Hong Kong (EduHK), and Lingnan University (LU).
Led by HKBU, Community of Practice for Service-Learning in Hong Kong Higher Education (CoP-SLHE) on SL is formed to promote sharing of experiences among SL practitioners and interested staff from all UGC-funded institutions to support social, collective learning opportunities.
Mission and Aims
CoP-SLHE aims to establish a network of staff with a common interest in SL to:
a. Encourage and support SL practitioners in HK higher education to further develop their understanding of and competence in SL;
b. Foster inter-institutional collaboration on SL projects and sharing of expertise among the institutions;
c. Provide a platform for members to discuss relevant issues, to develop insights and good practices, and to put enhanced ways of SL into practice;
d. Provide a platform (in the format of symposia) to disseminate resources produced in CoP-SLHE ; and
e. Manage and store knowledge generated by CoP-SLHE in a regular and sustainable way.
Core members of CoP-SLHE are responsible for setting directions and driving CoP-SLHE, and recruiting and engaging other members.
