October 19, 2023, Gang Yang
Throughout the seminar series, students at Ocean University of China were actively engaged in data collection, sample analysis, and collaborative research projects. This hands-on approach allowed them to apply their knowledge and develop critical scientific skills. Additionally, interactions with each other provided a broader perspective on the importance of estuaries and coastal regions to both the environment and society.
In conclusion, Professor Xiao Hua Wang provided a transformative learning experience, combining classroom instruction with hands-on fieldwork to foster a deeper appreciation and comprehension of estuarine and coastal environments in Jiaozhou Bay. Students emerged from the course not only with enhanced scientific expertise but also with a heightened sense of responsibility towards preserving these vital ecosystems for future generations.
