Experiential Learning Program for Visiting Scholars

Part a concerted effort by Ohio State’s College of Education and Human Ecology to foster collaboration and increase college engagement at the global level, this Program hosts scholars from Zhejiang Normal University in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China for two months to explore the topics of American culture, the English language, research methodologies, standards-based education systems, and US workplace context.

Many of the scholars will become teachers or instructors themselves, and previous scholars said that the full immersion in these cultural experiences intrigued them to the point of re-imagining their teaching practices.

The Center on Education and Training for Employment develops and implements student-centered, evidence-based curriculum for these scholars on how to develop assessments for workforce development and career education, the business of education, educational technology, and the DACUM process including a hands-on task analysis workshop.
