Chinese education officials learn, share at Medical Center Campus
This month Miami Dade College will host Chinese delegates for two weeks as part of the Vocational Education Leadership Training Program (VELT) on its Medical Center Campus.
"We look forward to hosting the distinguished delegation of Chinese administrators from various vocational and technical institutions," said Dr. Anita S. Kaplan, Medical Center Campus president. "Both our countries’ administrative leaders will be able to learn from each other's best practices."
The delegates, who are presidents and vice presidents of Chinese vocational and technical institutions, will attend lectures and seminars and shadow senior College administrators.
VELT started in 2008 as a joint collaboration between the American Association of Community Colleges and the China Education Association for International Exchange. The program was designed for senior leaders and administrators of Chinese vocational and technical institutions to help strengthen their leadership skills and to provide strategies to develop and improve market-oriented curriculum design and enhance teaching methods. The visiting administrators are also tasked with developing strong relationships with the local businesses and industry of the cities they visit.
The five-year program, which is paid for by the Chinese government, plans to train about 500 administrators nationwide by 2012.
