Overseas training program participants share experiences online


On the afternoon of June 12, a meeting was held online in the University of British Columbia (UBC) to review ECNU’s 11th Overseas Excellent Teacher Training Plan.

The review meeting is held online.

The meeting started with a video about the three-week life of 40 ECNU undergraduates in UBC from January 12 to February 1 this year. Headed by four teachers, the students spent 21 days at UBC, studying education and teaching theory, getting trained in classroom teaching skills, exchanging ideas with local educators, and visiting local schools.

Teachers and students share their three weeks at UBC.

ECNU launched the Excellent Teacher Training Plan Program in 2009, aiming to internationalize its teacher education and build a cooperation platform for high-quality teacher training. So far, a total of 352 undergraduates have been sent to study to in the Columbia University in the U.S., the National University of Ireland, London University, and UBC. This year marks the seventh year of cooperation between ECNU and UBC on the program.

The program, which aims at cultivating outstanding teachers and great educators with advanced educational concepts and broad international visions, is an important measure ECNU has taken to improve its education talent training mode and incentive mechanism, as well as the quality of its outstanding teacher training. It has become a brand of ECNU in its effort to internationalize its undergraduate education.
