Chinese Teaching Training University Talks To Wintec
Senior staff from Hebei Normal University in China will spend the day at Wintec next Tuesday to explore the possibility of widening the scope of opportunities for educational exchange between the two organisations.
Wintec CEO Mark Flowers said Hebei University is one the earliest Universities in China to work internationally. Located on a sprawling campus of over 122,000 acres the University has more than 1100 staff and 36,000 students. He said the institute has a strong focus on educational research, primary and intermediate teacher training, adult education and IT provision.
The university has moved quickly to incorporate IT into its teaching practices and while it has strong educational alignments internationally, it has no major partners in New Zealand.
Mr. Flowers said Wintec representatives had visited the university to discuss possible areas of co-operation in the field of teacher training, collaborative research and pathway opportunities for students.
“They are interested in a wide sector including business training, Media training, English Language and Agriculture,” he said.
