Student Projects: design and delivery

 

 

Project design and implementation are two key indicators to show students’ knowledge, understanding, skills and leadership in the field of engagement with Chinese community.

 

Project design

  • All registered students will be divided into a number of groups in Workshop 1 (Session 5) according to their interests and themes of projects
  • The themes of projects will be proposed, discussed and selected by all students according to their objectives, resources and feasibilities;
  • Once a theme determined, the leader of the proposal will become a chairperson to the group and ideally, group members are from a range of disciplines and nationalities background at various levels.
  • Each registered student must select and join a group as formal member to participate in project design and implementation.
  • A deputy chair and a secretary will be appointed or voted, and all meetings and activities should be taken into recordings or minutes as part of project documents/evidences for assessment.
  • At the end of the Autumn semester (Session 10), a written proposal and action plan will be submitted and presented at the second workshop in which a group of external experts and stakeholders’ representatives will be invited to assess and approve the projects.
  • Written proposal will contain, but not limited to, following information: project background, rationale, justification, objectives; available resources, constraints and ethical issues; health safety and risk assessment; timetable of project implements, expected outcomes and social implement.
  • Nonetheless, it should also state clearly about job division or description for all members.

 

Project Implementation
