China’s education system is undergoing a transformation, as manifested in
the creation of many more colleges and universities and secondary schools
across the country. The percent of the population that enroll in higher
education has doubled every five years over the last decade.  Yet, many
students remain unable to access in China due to a lack of space.

This faculty led program is intended for advanced undergraduate (Juniors and
Seniors) and graduate students to deeply understand the education system in
another country, specifically China. The global nature of our society and
the impact of globalization on education within the United States requires
teachers, faculty, students, and educational administrators to have more
knowledge of other educational systems. An in-country experience allows for
immersion in a different culture and a better appreciation of the context in
which education is conducted outside of the US.

The course content reflects a need to understand the historical and
socio-cultural context under which education systems evolve. Students will
read both fiction and non-fiction texts to learn more about the history of
the China educational system, the reform efforts, and the political climate.
Assignments are reflective in nature with a culminating creative critical
project that addresses the implications of other education systems on the US.

Visits to multiple schools and universities will be supplemented by cultural
programs and visits to nearby sites. Examples include: tour of Tian’anmen
Square, Forbidden City Great Wall trip, visit to Olympic Green and Bird’s
Nest, and a visit to Ming Tombs. Additionally, we will attend a Chinese
cultural class, watch an acrobatic show, and eat at several traditional
Chinese restaurants.

Participants will get an opportunity to interact with students from two
other American Universities – William & Mary and Central Michigan University
– as well as Beijing Agricultural University, Beijing Normal University,
Middle School Chartered by National Chinese University of Technology, and
the National Chinese University of Technology.
