Teaching Information Systems Courses in China: Challenges, Opportunities, and Lessons for US Educators
Fryling, Meg; Rivituso, Jack
Information Systems Education Journal, v14 n6 p14-19 Nov 2016
In Fall of 2014, as a result of a Chinese faculty visit to an upstate New York college to observe American pedagogical techniques in teaching information systems, two US faculty members were invited to teach two separate courses at a vocational college in southeast China. The courses to be taught in China were selected by the Chinese faculty and college administration. The specific courses to be taught were on the topics of computer applications and management and database foundations and applications. This paper is a reflection of the two American faculty members on their experiences teaching information systems courses at a vocation college in southeast China. The objective of this work is to describe their experiences teaching in China, to identify pedagogical differences, and to describe the challenges, rewards, and lessons learned of this type of endeavor.
