Liang, Xiao; Han, Xuefen
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v43 n2 p167-180 May 2013
With the rapid development of the social economy, the ideologies, ways of thinking, psychological qualities, and values of contemporary university students have changed significantly. This poses new challenges for traditional teaching administration. Importance has been attached to the humanity issue in university teaching, which attracts wide attention both at home and abroad. This paper, based on the construction of humanity in university teaching, illustrates the essence and necessities of humanity and probes into the inevitable trend of humanity. Based on this, a vital comparison is made regarding humanity in higher education in Canada and China. An analysis concerning insufficiency of humanity in Chinese university teaching is conducted on the basis of hardware and software facilities in universities. In the meantime, reasons for the differences between Chinese and Canadian higher education are explored, thus pointing out the necessity to build a humanity-oriented university system.
