Contemporary Chinese education by Ruth Hayhoe( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Education is seen by the Chinese as a key element in the modernisation of their country and in maintaining socialism. This book, first published in 1984, examines the nature of modern education in China since 1976, and looks at different parts of the system, the content of teaching and teaching styles. It considers how far the Chinese educational system has been affected by foreign powers and changing political ideology and is unique in that, using empirical data, it places the Chinese system in a world perspective."--Provided by publisher

Crossing borders in East Asian higher education by David W Chapman( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines issues that have emerged as higher education systems and individual institutions across East Asia confront and adapt to the changing economic, social, and educational environments in which they now operate. The book's focus is on how higher education systems learn from each other and on the ways in which they collaborate to address new challenges. The sub-theme that runs through this volume concerns the changing nature of cross-border sharing. In particular, the provision of technical assistance by more industrialised countries to lower and middle income countries has given way to collaborations that place the latter's participating institutions on a more equal footing. At the same time, there is a greater number of partnerships that link higher education systems in the East Asian region to one another. Even as boundaries become more porous and permeable, there is growing acceptance of the view that cross border collaboration, if done well, can offer mutually beneficial advantages on multiple levels. There is a new recognition that the intensified international sharing of ideas, strategies of learning, and students is not only of enormous value to systems and institutions but essential to their long term survival. To this end, the chapters in this volume examine various motivations, goals, mechanisms, outcomes and challenges associated with cross-border collaboration in higher education. [Publisher website]

Canadian universities in China's transformation : an untold story by Ruth Hayhoe( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book documents and reflects on the ways in which Canadian universities contributed to China's economic and social transformation from the early 1980s to the early 2000s, through a CIDA program that fostered linkages between the countries' universities. In 1982, China began an engagement with the World Bank that resulted in loans to the university and college system, a portion of which enabled higher education scholars to go abroad for study purposes and visiting experts to advise on curriculum development and research. The only other actor in terms of major development aid for China's universities and colleges in this early period was Canada. An agreement signed between the two countries in 1983 opened the way for a range of CIDA projects that focused on all aspects and levels of education in China, with $250 million being granted between 1983 and the late 1990s. To maximize the benefits of funding, the Trudeau government made a decision to focus on people-to-people relations through various partnerships that would foster learning in areas needed for modernization. This book takes up the story of three major university linkage programs: the Canada-China Management Education Program, the Canada-China University Linkage Program which embraced projects in medicine, agriculture, engineering, law, urban infrastructure, environment, education and minority cultures, and the subsequent Special University Linkage Consolidation Project. While all these projects went through a technical evaluation of their short-term achievements, no-one has looked at their longer-term consequences or at how they may have contributed to China's social and economic transformation. This book aims to fill that gap by bringing together senior scholars in both China and Canada who were directly involved in the leadership of these projects. They were asked to reflect on four key questions. In what ways did their project contribute to China's economic revitalization and rapid transformation? How far did their project foster the spawning of new ideas to address crucial issues of democratic governance, social justice, and environmental sustainability? What organizational or contextual features of the linkage itself were important in enabling the project to be effective and what serious challenges or hindrances arose? What lessons for current and future collaboration between Canadian and Chinese universities may be drawn from this past experience? The book is organized into four parts. Part 1 describes the political and socio-cultural context; Part 2 considers the role of management education; Part 3 looks at various collaborations in engineering and environmental research, and their scientific and social impacts; Part 4 includes chapters on education and equity (ie. a project for the training of judges in China that has expanded into a network of cooperation in legal education; another on the issue of gender equity in the linkages, a priority for CIDA)."--

Education and global cultural dialogue : a tribute to Ruth Hayhoe( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a tribute to Ruth Hayhoe. As a figure of outstanding influence in the field of comparative education, Ruth Hayhoe has nurtured a unique scholarship over the years. First and foremost, she adopts a distinctive historical culturalist approach to comparative education, which stresses "the integration of specific historical-cultural contextual details into the analysis." Second, Ruth has been at the forefront of scholars advocating deep philosophical reflection about epistemology and the ways in which people know and learn in different cultural traditions. Finally, by modeling inter-civilizational dialogue as a theoretical and practical approach to comparative education, Ruth has provided the field with an invaluable response to the center-periphery dynamic of knowledge, which comparativists often criticize but rarely act to reverse
