Chinese Professors Study American Teaching Methods

Asian American Press, Posted: Aug 11, 2008

ST. PAUL, Minn. Thirty-two Chinese professors studied American teaching methods at Century College in St. Paul, reports the Asian American Press. The professors teach English at Soochow University, a highly selective school in Suzhou, China with 100,000 students and six campuses. From July 10 to Aug. 1, the professors learned how they can use service learning (community service), group dynamics, research papers and lectures to teach students. To incorporate more active learning into their courses, the professors were advised to give shorter lectures and divide the class into smaller groups for student-led discussion or projects. Quanming Zhu, chair of the Soochow English Department, said that his professors were impressed with the "vitality and vigor of [the American] culture."
