Intercultural Learning in Higher Education in China: Global, Local and Glocal Perspective
Preparation for intercultural engagement, whether in China or beyond, is now an important aspect of young people’s education. As students in higher education seek opportunities for study abroad and/or study alongside their international peers in their Chinese institutions, they need intercultural communication resources to support their learning and engagement. Employers also need interculturally competent graduates who can operate in increasingly globalized and intercultural contexts. Furthermore, national policies have highlighted intercultural learning in Chinese higher education, and intercultural learning has been mandated by the Chinese Ministry of Education within its English language teaching guidelines.
This 2-day conference aims to gather researchers, teachers, administrative and management staff in higher education, commercial providers of educational products and services, and policy makers for workshops and presentations on intercultural learning in higher education in China. By advancing dialogue between researchers and practitioners, building bridges between global and local perspectives, and reflecting on theories and practices of intercultural learning in higher education, a deeper understanding of intercultural education in Chinese higher education can be gained. In addition to invited and selected papers and posters (see below), the conference will offer workshops for teachers and trainers based on the intercultural learning materials developed within the RICH-Ed project.
