Does Service-Learning project enhance civic learning in media students?...

Playwright and screenwriter Sir Tom Stoppard once said, “I still believe that if your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon.” To train media students in ethical knowledge, moral and/or societal responsibility to achieve public goods and make positive impact in society can be daunting. One pedagogy that holds promise to achieve that end is Service-Learning (S-L).

 At the School of Humanities & Social Sciences (HMS), students taking the S-L module News Reporting & Feature Writing in the Chinese Media Communications course in October 2016 and October 2017 semesters participated in a study that examined civic outcomes.
