Abstract

The present study reports the evaluation findings based on 37 students from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University who enrolled in a service learning subject entitled ‘Promotion of Children and Adolescent Development’ in the 2012/13 academic year. The Student Feedback Questionnaire (SFQ) was used to gauge the views of students on the subject and the teaching performance of the staff. Both qualitative and quantitative results showed that students generally had positive perceptions of the subject and teachers, with many participants regarding the subject as helpful to them as a future professional, a citizen in the Hong Kong society and for their personal growth. Overall, the study confirms the effectiveness of the service learning subject in Hong Kong.
