Theme: Research on Learning and Educational Change in China from a Global Perspective

  • Guangzhou
  • Shanghai
  • Beijing
 

Introduction

This series of conference activities to be held in three major cities in China is planned to build on the theme Connecting CSCL research to education policy and practice of the CSCL 2011 Conference in Hong Kong. It aims to draw on national and global exemplars of synergistic advances in CSCL and learning sciences research and educational policy and practice to explore and discuss the current state and the way forward for education developments in China.

Social, economic, and technological changes have prompted educational reforms in many countries and educational change has become a major focus of educational research. Advances in technology and in CSCL and Learning Sciences research provide tools and insights that help to address many of the educational change goals. However, it is widely recognized that these potential benefits are far from being fully realized. This series of post-conference activities in Mainland China is an attempt to bring together researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers within China and internationally to identify ways to better leverage the potentials that research on learning and learning technologies bring to educational change and improvement. The program in each of the three cities addresses one of three related subthemes as listed in the table below.
