Teacher Education and Training in China: Evaluating Change with Chinese Lecturers of English
Lamie, Judith M.
Journal of In-service Education, v32 n1 p63-84 Mar 2006
This article investigates the process of change with reference to Chinese lecturers of English taking part in a one-month intensive teacher training programme. The programme was initiated in response to a government directive that 20% of all university courses in Chinese national universities should be taught in English. The article sets the training programme in its educational context by providing a summary of English language developments in China, before moving on to the presentation of the data itself. The training programme begins with a seminar focusing on change, during which the participants complete and discuss a series of activities. In the final session of the programme participants are invited to suggest ways in which changes in attitudes and practice might occur following the course. The experiences and opinions of the participants, arising from the responses, are discussed, and implications and recommendations are made as a result. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
