University’s Beijing masterclass broadens high-quality teaching in China

University’s Beijing masterclass broadens high-quality teaching in China

 

A MASTERCLASS hosted by the University of Chichester in Beijing has taught more than 200 teachers on how to develop high-quality education in classrooms with diverse student communities.

The teachers, in groups of 50, spent more than two days learning about improving teaching quality with James Martin, Head of Partnership at the Institute of Education. Chichester is a leading provider of teacher-training in the UK with and a legacy that stretches back to 1839, when it first opened as a teaching institution.

Mr Martin, who has been a teacher for more than 25 years, said: “It was an honour to work with colleagues in China. There was a real desire to learn how to continue to achieve and develop high-quality teaching in classrooms in Beijing.”

The sessions covered topics on planning and developing materials and assessment measures to make sure all students within a classroom can learn effectively, regardless of differences in ability. Masterclasses were interspaced with practical activities which involved participants to allow for discussions and for the teachers to share best practice.

In 2017 the University was formally recognised for the quality of its international teacher-training and development by the Chinese government. Officials in Beijing added the institution to an approved list of overseas learning centres for educating schoolteachers and principals from provinces across the country.
