Abstract

A total of 48 University students from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Peking University and Xi’an Jiaotong University responded to a 45-item subjective outcome evaluation scale after they had participated in a 21-hour intensive service leadership course incorporated in the Silk Road Youth Leadership Program (SRYLP). Both quantitative and qualitative results showed that students generally had very positive evaluation of the course regarding its content, lecturers and benefits, with approximately 90% of the students indicating that they were highly satisfied with the course. As predicted, ratings on different aspects of the course were significantly and positively correlated with each other. While perceived course content significantly predicted perceived course benefits, perception on lecturer quality did not. Overall satisfaction was also predicted by course content and perceived benefits.
