Global Challenges and Local Solutions: Education for the 21st Century

  Prof. Jane Edwards  (Associate Dean for International Affairs, Yale University) 

  All over the world universities and whole educational systems are striving to respond to the impact of globalization. This has a profound effect on the way in which our institutions are thinking about the education that our young people need, and on our research agendas. As mobility increases, and as we use the new communications technologies to talk and to work across borders we must consider how best to prepare our students, through providing opportunities for education abroad and for reflection and study at home, for lives that will offer unprecedented new opportunities. Are there lessons to be learned from American experience in initiatives of this kind? How can Chinese and American universities use their resources effectively to meet this challenge?  And how can what is useful in the American model be used without sacrificing the virtues found in other education systems? 

  Prior to taking up the new position of Associate Dean for International Affairs at Yale in August 2006, Jane Edwards served for three years as Director of International Studies at Harvard, where she initiated an ambitious program of international experience for undergraduates. Before this she served in a similar position at Wesleyan University, where she also ran a program in the less commonly taught languages, and taught for the department of Romance Languages. She has holds a B.A and an M.A from Cambridge University, and came to the United States to pursue a Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania. Co-author with Humphrey Tonkin of “The World in the Curriculum” she publishes and presents on a wide range of topics in international education. She has held national office in several professional organizations in international education, and currently serves on the Board of World Learning, and chairs the Council on International Education’s Academic Consortium Board.  She is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Studies in International Education. She has taught throughout her career, primarily in Latin American Studies, gender studies, and cultural anthropology.

  北大-耶鲁系列讲座之七  北大教育论坛  全球挑战与本土解决:21世纪的教育 

  Jane Edwards  教授  (耶鲁大学本科学院 副院长) 

  世界各地的大学和整个教育系统正在努力应对全球化的影响。这对我们的院校如何思考我们的年轻人的需要,以及院校的研究议程产生了深刻的影响。由于流动性的增加,以及使用新的通信技术来进行跨越国界的交流与工作,我们必须考虑如何才能为国外学生提供教育机会和为国内学生提供学习的新机会。在这类举措中有一些美国的经验教训应该吸取吗?中国和美国大学怎么利用自己的资源,以有效地应对这一挑战?怎样使美国模式在其他教育体系中发挥作用,而不失去其原有的优点?
