Over the coming months thedaxue.org will awaken from its slumber and publish a series of blog posts aimed at clarifying the vast terrain of Chinese Higher Education.
The series of posts will hopefully be of interest to academics, scholars, university administrators, international officers and anyone with a passing interest in the sprawling web of institutions that constitute Chinese HE.
In addition, we'll be looking at some of the major issues facing Chinese HE, including the challenges of enacting meaningful transformation of Chinese HE and issues arising from its continued reform at the national, regional and global levels.
A broad range of topics to be covered will include (subject to some adjustment):
1. CCP and PRC Vision for HE Reform
2. The Elite HE Sector
3. Provincial and Municipal Universities
4. The Private "Minban" Sector
5. Vocational Education
6. Higher Education Law and Regulations
7. Internationalization of Chinese HE: Partnering with Chinese Universities
8. Internationalization of Chinese HE: Recruiting Strategies
9. Internationalization of Chinese HE: The Shadow Int'l Education Industry
10. Research in the Chinese HE Sector
Articles may focus on these issues or cut across several topics. If any readers have specific requests for information or blogposts they'd like to see, they can email Mike Gow at: firstname.lastname@example.org
These posts will aim to demystify the Chinese HE sector and provide some a resource of basic information on the sector. The blogposts are not intended as academic articles, but primarily to serve as an entry point for anyone interested in this field. I also hope that any scholars (especially those who, like me, are at the beginning of their academic careers) can get in touch with a view to working towards a greater understanding of the Chinese HE sector.
Also, any comments, feedback or ideas for blogposts or proposals for guest blogposts, please email me at the above address.
