and High School, Shanghai
The seminar was designed to help university administrators and faculty to more effectively integrate Chinese international students onto U.S. campuses. Participants developed their own general intercultural competence, as well as a deeper understanding of modern Chinese culture. Moreover, participants gained a greater knowledge of Chinese educational culture, as influenced by both ancient traditions and more recent historical events. Finally, participants discovered tools and activities to respond to linguistic and cultural challenges in the classroom and in the wider campus community.
Corcoran will provide a fuller report when the fall semester begins, and he will also provide presentations during the fall semester to the HPU community on the results of the seminar.
