Building a Bridge between Western and Eastern Worlds: Reciprocal Learning Programmes That Create Reflective Practice, Hope and Prosperity in Education
Howitt, Clara
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v25 n6 p743-751 2019
This paper focuses on the Reciprocal Learning Programmes between Western and Eastern educational systems through a Sister School project as well as, a Reciprocal Learning Programme through preservice programs between a Canadian university and a Chinese university. Benefits of the Reciprocal Learning Programs include reflective practice of "content and pedagogical learning", "cultural and societal learning", "globalisation and emotional and social impact." Qualitative documentation demonstrates that educational, social and cultural dimensions are cultivated and nurtured through the Reciprocal Learning programs and have positively affected the students, educators and leaders involved in the project. Criteria for success in the programs included professional and personal commitment, educator inquiry, vulnerability, organisational commitment and multi-dimensional partnerships.
