Venue: Run Run Shaw Building Room 321, The University of Hong Kong
Speaker: Dr. Angela Leung (Assistant Professor, School of Nursing, HKU)

Life Review, a thought-provoking project in Gerontological Nursing Course, challenges students with the occasions meeting and chatting with senior citizens and identifying the important life events. These life events can be influential to their ego, their health behavior and perception about their relationships with friends and relatives. With the agreement from older adults, nursing students captured all the valuable memories and wrote up commemorative booklets. These booklets serve as gifts to the beloved relatives or comprehensive records of all achievements in lives. In this seminar, the speaker will focus on how to guide a project-based learning and integrate it into a curriculum. Discussion will emphasize the role of teachers, collaborators and students in experiential learning.
