Teaching in Chinese High Schools

CETI was established in 1997 with Internet related projects at Chinese high schools. Over time the program has expanded to Chinese universities, though CETI still holds two to three high school workshops each summer. Teams of three MIT students spend six to eight weeks at two high schools in China - one in a large city, and the other in a small town. There is also a CETI high school camp held in July at YuanZe University in Taiwan each summer. Each team is responsible for developing its own curriculum and teaching a class of approximately 25-40 students. See Past Participants for details and samples of CETI team reports.

MIT-China - OpenCourseWare Initiative

The goal of this project is to introduce the concept and benefits of MIT OCW to students and educators at universities across mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The MIT-China - OpenCourseWare Initiative ran its pilot project in 2004 at Qinghai University located just outside the city of Xining. Five MIT students spent six weeks at QU working with 60 students on the fundamentals of Computer Science, Biology and Environmental Engineering using materials from the OCW site (See Sal Scaturro article for details). The pilot project was a great success, and since 2004 CETI has sent OCW teams to universities in Beijing, Chengdu,Dalian, Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Kunming, Tianjin, Taiwan, Wuhan, and Xi'an. For more information about the MIT-China - OpenCourseWare projects, see Past Participants and the MIT-China website. For more information about MIT OpenCourseWare, please visit ocw.mit.edu.  

MIT iCampus - MISTI Initiative

In 2005 The MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) launched a collaboration with the MIT iCampus Outreach Initiative. This opportunity is targeted for students who are interested in helping MIT introduce iCampus innovations in educational technology to universities in foreign countries, with an initial focus on China. These projects include:
   - Remote Laboratories Online (iLabs)
   - Online lectures and interactive homework (XTutor)
   - Project-based Engineering Design (RobotWorld)
   - Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL, 8.02T)
   - MIT Online Assessment Tool (iMOAT)

We are particularly interested in sponsoring teams to work with Chinese universities on creating and sharing online laboratories (see information on MIT iLabs) and introducing applications of online materials from 8.02, 6.001, and 6.034. See Past Participants section for sample team reports.
