Event description

Description

Globalization and Technological Innovation have been transforming the world dramatically. During the past three decades, with the development of economy and life, the understanding and practice of “Education” have been changing in both China and the U.S. Quality-oriented Education, Liberal Education, International Education, Lifelong Learning and Online Education —— such concepts have become tide of the times. Moreover, the interaction and fusion of eastern and western educational systems also make the concept “education” richer yet more vague.

Education plays a significant part in the foundation of national development. What is the role of education in the construction of modern society? How should education help individuals in realizing personal value and social value? Which educational methods are commendable? How does one interpret the relationships between education and other fields? What challenges and opportunities does contemporary education face? Furthermore, what experiences, lessons and thoughts would educational practitioners like to share?

To find answers for these questions, the Penn China Education Summit came into being. We will invite leaders in four fields of education, including K-12 Education, Education and Technology, Higher Education and Professional Education, from both China and the U.S. to the summit and let wisdom be revealed by the interaction among renowned scholars and innovative practitioners. PCES hopes to promote deeper communication and collaboration between the two countries as well as provide guidance and inspiration for their educational reforms. Let’s enjoy the extraordinary educational experience in the university which modernized American education! See you this fall at Penn!

全球化与科技创新正在飞速改变世界,过去三十年间,随着经济生活的发展,无论中国还是美国,对“教育”的理解和实践都在不断发生变化。素质教育、博雅教育、国际教育、终身教育和在线教育等理念已成为时代潮流,而东西方教育体系的碰撞与交融也让“教育”这一概念本身变得愈加丰富而莫测。

作为国家发展的基础之一,教育在现代化建设中究竟扮演着怎样的角色?教育应该如何帮助个体实现个人价值与社会价值?怎样的教育方式才是值得称道的?教育与其他领域的关系该怎样解读?现代教育所面临的挑战和机遇都有哪些?教育者们又有哪些经验、教训和思考想要与他人分享?

带着这些问题,宾大中美教育峰会应运而生。我们希望邀请两国教育界的领军人物,让知名学者和创新实践者碰撞出智慧的火花,并借此深度促进中美交流合作,为双方的教育改革提供指导与启发。今年秋季,让我们在开创美国现代化教育的高等学府共飨智慧盛宴!
