held its first meetings with the Yuxin Training School
to develop some innovative new programs for learning
and culture exchange with students and teachers from
the United States. The school will design curriculums
for students in a variety of disciplines, although the
initial curriculums will be tailored to those wishing
to gain a deeper perspective on Chinese culture.
initial target audience for these programs will be American
college students wishing to get exposure to China, its
people, and its culture. 30-day programs will be created
for those interested, and a variety of topics will be
covered where they will be introduced to many types
of cultural topics, from exposure to Chinese arts, to
reviews on the Chinese business environment, economy,
and laws. Eventually, specific curriculums may also
be developed for specialized groups such as those wishing
to study mathematics, physics, art, and other physical
and social sciences.
will also be tailored for the families of expats who
live and work in China and who would like to learn about
their new home from experts who have many years of experience
sharing knowledge with others. Furthermore, reverse
student exchange programs will be created that will
allow Chinese student and academic scholars to travel
to colleges in America for learning exchange. These
programs will evolve as the relationship between SATDA
and the Yuxin Training School solidifies, and proven
results and established programs and protocols are enacted.
initial meetings with SATDA's honored guests from the
Yuxin Training School who are taking the lead in this
endeavor, whose combined teaching experience was over
100 years between the three of them, went extremely
well. All parties felt there was a good strategic fit
between SATDA in their school given SATDA's past cultural
and education projects between the United States and
China. We are pleased with the results so far, and anticipate
the actual launch of programs in the very near future.
We promise to keep you informed.
