Ecology Field Course 2009
Date: October 12-16, 2009
The Ecology Field Course 2009 was a huge success, held at Po Leung Kuk Pak Tam Chung Holiday Camp. The field course this year was a special one as we had staff and students from The University of Johannesburg, South Africa and Xiamen University, China joined staff and students from the University of Hong Kong. The 20 undergraduates from XMU have taken this field course as one of their BSc courses. They completed field and class tasks with the HKU undergraduates under the supervision from postgraduate demonstrators and staff from the three universities. Through the sharing of different knowledge and culture backgrounds, an interactive learning environment was maintained during this 5-day field camp. While learning through hands on experience was top priority, everybody involved was able to meet new people and have a great time.
In coming years, we hope to maintain this tight collaboration between different universities so as to provide more academic and cultural exchange opportunities for the students.
