Call for Papers


Envisioning Reciprocal Learning between Canada and China

University of Windsor, Canada

April 7-8, 2014

We live in an age when education is at the heart of social policy and public discussion and when education is a world-wide topic. Education is personal, specific and concrete but increasingly this concreteness is shaped by international considerations. China is first among our newcomer families and children. The recent Program for International Student Assessment results (PISA) show that children in Confucian countries and regions, with Shanghai China leading, top the world in Mathematics, Science and Reading achievements. How different and similar are Chinese Confucian and Western educational systems and practices? What can we reciprocally learn from one another as global concerns come to the fore-front in educational planning and practice?
我们诚邀您参加将于2014年4月7-8日在(加拿大)温莎大学举行的题为“展望加拿大-中国互惠学习”的 首届公开研讨会。当今时代,教育已成为社会政策和公众讨论的中心议题,同时教育也已成为一个国际性的话题。 教育虽是个人的、专门的、具体的,但教育的具体性又越来越多地受到国际因素的影响。中国是加拿大新移民家庭 和孩子的最主要来源国之一,最近一次国际学生评估项目(PISA)的结果显示来自儒家文化国家和地区的学 生,以中国上海的学生为首,在数学、科学和阅读上世界领先。中国的孔子思想与西方教育体系和教育实践究竟存 在哪些异同之处?当国际因素在教育规划和教育实践中日趋重要的背景下,这样的相互学习能为我们带来什么?

The purpose of this conference is to explore these matters in a way that is informative and makes a difference to parents, students, teachers, teacher educators and other educational professionals.
We welcome papers that describe specific situations, and/or make philosophical and social arguments for and against educational forms and practices. We especially welcome empirically descriptive studies that describe practices in the thematic curricular areas.
