Take a look at what’s inside…
  • Feature Article: Designing the Optimal Curriculum for your Joint Program in China
In a competitive market it is important for joint programs to optimize learning by effectively tailoring their curriculum to meet student expectations without sacrificing quality. In light of a 2013 survey revealing that joint programs are failing key regulatory requirements, CHE provides an overview of MoE curriculum and teaching requirements for joint programs and institutes, and explores three existing curriculum design models in China. As the models differ with regards to cost, delivery and regulatory approval, selecting the right model is critical to meeting student expectations and delivering strong results. What is the right balance of foreign and local content? How can barriers of entry affect the quality of the curriculum? How important is a cohort’s language proficiency to curriculum design? This edition answers these questions and more to help joint program providers make informed decisions.

The Policy section in this issue includes:
  • State Council to Create National Standards for Occupational Certification
In a bid to standardize and nationalize the occupational qualifications system in China, the State Council is abolishing hundreds of qualifications, professional standards and certification. In its place, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MoHRSS) will establish a list of occupations that require certification, along with national standards for certification.
