During the last week, the students would be led to a migrant children school. Through service learning experience, you would be asked to study on the distinctiveness that the migrant children have in their way of living, behaving and thinking. You are required to reflect on education, social issues and cultural differences; observe the changes that are taking place on those being served before and after the services; furthermore think about the roles and responsibilities which should be taken by the government as well as the citizens in order to revitalize the education of this vulnerable group.
Service learning is beyond the limitations of traditional way of learning. It provides you opportunities to learn and experience in real situations to enhance your self-confidence, cross-cultural communication skills, self-management skills. In this process, you will perceive China in a real and profound way, and will also get a brand new understanding about the nature of "education".
