Holland College staff participate in symposium in China
August 5, 2013
Charlottetown, PE – Holland College staff participated in the fourth Educational Joint Venture Best Practice Symposium in Anyang, China recently, jointly hosted by Anyang Normal University and Holland College. The symposium is for post-secondary institutions in China that participate in Educational Joint Ventures with Holland College.
For more than a decade, Chinese technical schools and universities have participated in Educational Joint Ventures with the college. The primary objective of these ventures is to share educational methodology and to create educational and career opportunities for students both in China and in Canada.
All of the programs are three-year programs. The first year includes English language training and courses that are mandatory to obtain a Chinese college diploma. The second and third years are devoted to the delivery of a number of two-year Holland College diploma programs. Each program is delivered in English, and enables students to earn a Holland College Canadian credential without leaving China.
Sixty administrators and faculty from Chengdu Technological University, Zhenjiang College, Changzhou Institute of Technology, Hainan College of Vocation and Technique, Xuchang University, Anyang Normal University, Jiangxi Institute of Science & Technology and Shangrao Normal University, and five staff from Holland College participated in the symposium.
The event, which takes place every two years, provides the participants with the opportunity to network and collaborate with other institutions involved in EJV initiatives. One of the highlights of this year’s symposium was a presentation by Ms. Yang Xinxin, Vice President of Anyang Normal University, who shared her results on the Chinese Provincial Competence-Based Education Research Project. The research project demonstrated her understanding of the importance of applying CBE in vocational training, as well as her leadership and commitment to the EJV partnership with Holland College.
