Investigating the impacts of intergenerational collaboration on Service-Learning Projects

Research output: Other Conference ContributionsPresentation

Abstract

Intergenerational Service-Learning (SL), a new form of S-L projects, benefits both undergraduate students and elders by changing the role of elders from service receivers to service providers. The action research approach is applied in this study for investigating the impacts of intergenerational S-L on students and elders in an S-L project in the Ocean Park in a cluster course entitled “CLD9008: Life Sciences: The Way Life Works” in term 2 of 2018-19 and term 1 of 2020-21. A mixed-method approach is adopted in this action research study for collecting quantitative (pre-test and post-test questionnaires) and qualitative (focus groups) data.
