On May 11, we were pleased to host the 1st session of Asia Education Leader 2023 Summer Course Pre-study Series. It was our honor to invite Prof. Jungcheng Chen, Vice Dean, and Professor of College of Education, National Chengchi University (NCCU) to provide a lecture at the Graduate School of Education, Tohoku University. Before the pre-study session started, Prof. Hideki Kozima, Vice Dean of the Graduate School of Education met with Prof. Chen and had a conversation about the Asia Education Leader Course. Prof. Kozima and Prof. Chen also exchanged souvenirs as a symbol of the strong and friendly ties between the Graduate School of Education, Tohoku University and the College of Education, National Chengchi University.
We were also pleased to welcome 8 students from NCCU to join this session on-site. They had face-to-face communication and exchange with 7 students from Tohoku University. Moreover, 10 participants from Nanjing Normal University joined online. The students were divided into five groups to have discussions about rural life study, challenges for rural school principals, and the quality of education in rural areas after Prof. Chen’s talk.
This pre-study session was an inspiring event for all participants to absorb the knowledge of Education and Social Changes in Taiwan. Also, it was the first time that AELC was held in a hybrid style. We believe it has achieved a new milestone in the history of AELC.
Thank you very much for your participation!
We look forward to having you join the next session on June 14!
