Abstract

The Office of Service-Learning, Lingnan University partnered with the Discovery and Education Department, Ocean Park (a theme park in Hong Kong) to develop a Service-Learning project. Along with the traditional goals of Service-Learning (enhance undergraduate student learning, provide useful service for community partner), we added an additional goal of promoting [1]The educational services (narration services at the exhibits and interactive games) aimed to fulfil Ocean Park’s goal of providing a richer visitor experience, as well as promote the message of marine conservation. This study provides information on how including elders as service providers in a Service-Learning project can facilitate reciprocal learning between age groups and promote intergenerational harmony.
