The place is different. The culture is different. But the educational issues are the same.
This summer, four professors in the College of Education and Human Ecology shared their learning technology knowledge with students and faculty in central China.
Kui Xie, David Stein, Tracey Stuckey-Mickell and Michael Glassman, all faculty in the Department of Educational Studies, traveled to Wuhan, China, to discuss their research in learning technology and distance education and experiences at The Ohio State University with those at Central China Normal University and nearby universities.
For two weeks, the faculty provided insights in technology and online learning in seminars as well as hosting lectures on e-learning, learning analytics and e-learning research trends.
“Our research topics were well-received by the Chinese scholars. Their interest in digital learning raised a lot of critical questions,” said Xie, EHE’s Cyphert Distinguished Professor.
“Students also are very interested in our work. They are especially interested in the research methods and the right questions to ask.”
