Welcome Shenzhen Polytechnic Delegation

In January 2014, The Global Education Institute hosted visiting department deans and administrators from Shenzhen Polytechnic College. During their visit, the delegates learned about U.S. higher education, such as the importance of technology in the classroom, higher education administration and higher education trends. These modules had given the delegates a number of new ideas on developing the education quality in their departments in Shenzhen. The group also visited various higher education institutes in North Carolina such as the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, Duke University, Peace University, Wake Tech Community College and Durham Tech Community College. Looking at these institutes with a more critical eye had deepened the delegates’ understanding of U.S. higher education in the 21st century. The delegates also had opportunities to discuss current educational issues with representatives from these institutes, and propose future partnership ideas
