Sustainable Development Programme for Sino-foreign Cooperation in Running Schools

Events

Project Background

Sino - foreign cooperative education is a concrete practice of higher education to internationalization. It is also a new exploration in the construction process of high - level universities in our country. It has set up a platform for the exchange of quality education resources. However, the cooperation between Chinese and foreign schools in the construction of the mechanism, quality assurance and regional balanced development is still facing many practical difficulties.

With the background of higher education internationalisation, this training project is based on the practice of XJTLU and the program provides a platform to discuss with participates how to introduce international quality education resources, innovative talent cultivation and university management mechanism, so as to train the leaders with cutting-edge ideas and management capacity, and finally enhance the overall development level and international competitiveness of participating institutions.

Topic

In the context of international strategy, Sino-foreign cooperative education has become an important way and an effective mode for the internationalization of Chinese universities. The selection of cooperation projects, the internal management structure and operational mechanism, the introduction and support of multicultural talents, the support of local governments and the regional policy environment are all topics worthy of long-term sustainable development of Sino-foreign cooperative education projects.
