[photopress:Harvard_1.jpg,full,alignright]Senior faculty from 18 leading business schools in China and elsewhere in Asia are taking part in a faculty development program at Harvard Business School aimed at raising the standard of management education in China.
The Program on Case Method and Participant-Centered Learning was launched two years ago following requests from the Chinese ministry of education. Participants receive intensive teaching in the participant-centered learning model, case teaching and writing and course development. More than 216 students from the region have already been through the program.
Participants are taught how to design a course, lead discussions and conduct research. Students then meet at a host school in Asia where they receive tuition on case writing and course development administered by Harvard Business School Publishing.
Paul Marshall, one of two chairs of the programme, says that, as participant-centered teaching grows in China, there has been a ‘significant impact on the quality of management education there. By working so closely with the top business schools in China, HBS faculty members are gaining insights into China which will enrich their teaching and research activities in Boston.’
