The 5th International Conference on Reciprocal Learning between Eastern and Western Education & Conference on Deep Learning and Classroom Research was successfully held at Changchun Northeast Normal University (NENU) from May 18 – 20 2018. Organized by the Canadian government–funded Partnership Grant project entitled “Reciprocal Learning in Teacher Education and School Education between Canada and China,” the conference was attended by more than 270 attendees representing 39 universities and 11 secondary and primary schools in Canada, Singapore, the United States, Mainland China and Hong Kong. Different from previous years, this year’s conference began with a series of pre-conference activities hosted by three local schools in Changchun — the Primary School Attached to Northeast Normal University, Jiefang Road Primary School and the High School Attached to Northeast Normal University. These pre-conference activities featured a series of presentations and lessons delivered by Canadian and Chinese school educators who were participating in the Reciprocal Learning Partnership Grant project. They provided a chance for conference attendees to understand Chinese schools and classes, and experience how Canada-China reciprocal learning in teacher education and school education actually felt like in concrete school settings.
