哈佛中国教育论坛2017年会将于明年4月份在哈佛大学举行。本届年会设有以下分论坛6个,现面向波士顿地区高校公开招募分论坛主席6名:

1. 教育科技与大数据 | EdTech & Big Data

Living and working in the 21st century requires a new paradigm of teaching and learning. By creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources, Education technology, such as ICT (information and communications technology), helps people obtain high quality education in a more effective and accessible way. The big data brought about by technological and methodological advances also allows us to enhance student outcomes through just-in-time, diagnostic data as well as data-intensive research and analysis.

2. 教育体制改革 | Education System Reform

A key component of education innovation is seeking for ground-breaking changes within the current, pre-established systematic framework and policy structure. Working within the system to create change allows the navigation of bureaucratic resources while inspiring agency-driven creativity. Specific examples include The Affiliated High School of Peking University, Shanghai High School Creativity Cultivation Program, etc.

3. 公民教育 | Civic Education

A free society depends on citizens’ knowledge, skills and civic virtues. Civic education is the education preparing citizens to be actively involved in the civic life of societal governance, which requires civic knowledge, intellectual and participatory civic skills as well as civic dispositions of private and public character. Besides family and community groups, schools fulfill this distinctive civic mission through formal and informal education in the earliest years and continuing through the entire education process. 

4. 儿童早期教育 | Early Childhood Education

Early childhood education (ECE), also known as nursery education refers to the teaching of young children up to the age of eight. Infant/toddler education is the branch of ECE, denoting the education of children from birth to age two. Studies in recent decades have proved that ECE help diminish the risk of social-emotional mental health problems and increase children’s self-sufficiency as adults. Furthermore, by providing education in children’s most formative years, it narrows down the educational achievement gap between children of different socioeconomic status (SES) in the very beginning.  

5. 创客与STEM教育 | Maker & STEM Education

Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. It has been a growing concern that the education system should prepare students with 21st century skills, including innovation, critical thinking, communication, math, problem-solving skills, etc. Intended to prepare students with these traits, marker education, a cross-disciplinary educational model based on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering,and Mathematics) begin to prevail in China in recent years. 

6. 农村教育 | Rural Education

At the end of 20th century, although China has basically universalized the compulsory nine-year education and eliminated the illiteracy among young and middle-aged people, rural areas still have limited access to adequate and high quality education. The development of rural education faces the challenges from both supply and demand sides, that is, insufficient funds budget from government, and low demand from students expecting low return to education in labor market.
