Course Title: BASC2001 Essential skills for undergraduates: The Leadership Development Course on Culture, Science and Society (ES4L)

The goal of this course is to prepare HKU students for a lifetime of engaged, responsible and active community involvement and leadership on- and off-campus and after graduation. Leadership is explored as an integral component of a student’s career and life plan, focusing on the theory of relational leadership along with the importance of interpersonal skills and group dynamics. The methodology employed in this course will be one of knowledge acquisition, practice, and reflection through the exploration of theory, case study analysis, and active design of a performance-based leadership experience. The course is designed around the principles of team and organizational leadership, intercultural leadership, community leadership and personal leadership development.

Purpose of this Session

On this day the two sections of the BASC2001 course will be meeting together and will be doing final presentations on their Fieldwork projects. Students were organized into small groups (2 to 4 students) to complete a fieldwork project that centred on creating a ‘product’ which promoted knowledge and understanding about a specific focus of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in Hong Kong (Learn more about ICH here). Each group will give a 4 minute presentation followed by 6 minutes of Q&A. The goal of the fieldwork project, in the design of the overall course was to (i.) provide students with groupwork experiences in which to apply theoretical leadership and teamwork concepts presented in the course into a real life situation, and (ii.) increase the cultural awareness of student participants and explore ways to apply leadership skills in a culturally relevant manner.

Role for Observers

We are hoping that observers that choose to participate will engage in two ways, (1.) by asking questions during the Q&A section following each of the 8 groups presentations, and (2.) complete a short feedback from (on Google Forms) for each presentation, which will provide valuable feedback to each group of students.
