Becoming a Courier of Marine Stewardship – A Model of Service-based Learning for Environmental Sustainability

 

Presented by

Dr CHEANG Chi Chiu  (Lecturer, SES)

ABSTRACT

This presentation is to report the experience of project holder in organizing a field-based co-curricular education programme for the students of the University to promote their change in knowledge, skill and attitude for marine conservation. This programme could serve as a model of the service-based learning for environmental sustainability, integrated with the practical experience of scientific research and the transfer of knowledge. A diving team of seven undergraduate students, which entitled Courier of Marine Stewardship at the EdUHK (Courier MS EdU; formerly known as Courier MS IEd), were trained up with the knowledge about marine conservation and protection; and skill to conduct underwater ecological studies. Upon the completion of the training, the team assisted in various activities for enhancing their field experience and community exposure, which include conducting underwater research through Hong Kong Reef Check 2015, experience sharing in educational talk to secondary and primary students and carrying out seabed cleanup. All the activities aforementioned, which could be regarded a complete process of knowledge transfer through our students, contained various degree of service-learning component. For example, the Hong Kong Reef Check is a citizen scientist programme that allows students to collect first-hand dataset for the monitoring of coral reefs under a global monitoring network. The seabed clean-up is undoubtedly a service for the community, which could not be achieved easily by the general publics. The education talks in local schools could help advocating the importance of marine conservation and delivering the most updated knowledge and information about marine ecology to the primary and secondary students. Our students have benefited much from the programmes in all knowledge, skill and attitude aspects. Those benefits, as well as, the difficulties in organizing such unconventional programme will be discussed in the presentation.
