Abstract

The present study reports the evaluation findings based on 37 university students who enrolled in a service learning subject entitled “Promotion of Children and Adolescent Development” at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The Student Feedback Questionnaire (SFQ) was used to gauge the views of students on the subject and the teaching performance of the teaching staff. Both qualitative and quantitative results showed that the students generally had positive perceptions of the subject and teachers, with an overwhelming majority of the students perceiving the subject as helpful to the development of their professional competence, citizenship, and personal growth. Overall, the study underscores the effectiveness of service learning in promoting holistic development in university students.
