Fricke and Skorczewski Visit China’s Northwest Normal University

April 30, 2015

On April 12, 2015, Gretchen Fricke and Bob Skorczewski attended a meeting with university officials and teacher representatives at Northwest Normal University in China. The meeting focused on the universities’ intercollegiate research and training programs, with Fricke representing the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior and Skorczewski representing the Office of Admissions. NWNU teachers who have participated in visiting studies at SIUE shared about their experiences, and the forum provided the opportunity for the next group of visiting scholars to ask questions.

SIUE and NWNU formally established the cooperative partnership on teacher’s research and training programs in 2011. Since August 2012, 21 teachers from 17 different disciplines have participated in the program, and the next group of 9 visiting scholars is set to arrive at SIUE in August 2015.
