Project Introduction

Different from introducing via lectures, this project developed the learning and teaching materials on local religious buildings by incorporating core elements of the experiential learning pedagogy, including designing learning activities in authentic settings at religious buildings wherever applicable. More than “learning about religion”, the idea of “learning from religion” are also adopted.
