Zhao, Fangxia
Online Submission, Paper presented at Chinese American Educational Research and Development Association (CAERDA) Conference (New York City, NY, March 23-24, 2008,)
This study examined the educational beliefs about teaching and learning of Chinese international and American-born graduate students in the disciplines of pure and applied sciences and mathematics at Auburn University by comparing their similarities and differences. The study reported (a) participants' demographic characteristics, (b) the dominant beliefs about teaching and learning of the two groups, (c) the two groups' educational beliefs about teaching and learning. One hundred and fifty-three graduate students who were in pure and applied sciences and mathematics participated in the study. There were 54 Chinese international students, and 99 American-born graduate students. Results indicated there were more similarities in beliefs about teaching and learning between Chinese international and American-born graduate students in the disciplines of pure and applied sciences and mathematics than differences. This study provided a new dimension in cross-cultural comparative investigation. (Contains 2 tables.)
