UMD: A Globally Connected University

Beijing Int'l Studies University Group Completes Training Program at MCI (08/14) / 北京第二外国语学院培训项目顺利闭幕

Maryland China Initiative was pleased to host Beijing International Studies University (BISU) for a 10-day Global Diversity and Creativity Development program. Despite being a short program, the group hit the ground running, learning key aspects of higher education-specific strategic development and performance evaluation. Taking advantage of the University of Maryland’s rich knowledge in higher education and globalization, BISU trainees gained expertise in key subjects such as University internationalization, academic integrity and University community relations. These lectures were also supplemented with exciting trips and site visits to Georgetown University and the Kissinger Institute, where they witnessed how their newly attained skills were implemented. 

美华中心很荣幸主办北京第二外国语学院为期10天的国际多元化创新人才培养培训项目。虽然培训时间有限,但是团队了解学习到了高等教育发展战略和绩效评估的重点,并充分利用马里兰大学在高等教育及国际化发展的优势,全面深入地获得了有关高校国际化,学术诚信和高校社区关系等方面的专业知识。课程培训之余,团队还去参观访问了乔治敦大学,基辛格研究院,美国国务院外国记者新闻中心等地,亲眼见证了所学知识技能在各大专业机构的实际应用。

培训的第二堂专业讲座讲者是来自马里兰大学语言文学文化学院东亚语言与文化系主任蓝慕西(Robert Ramsey) 教授,蓝教授精通东亚多国语言,问答环节更是直接用韩语和北二外朝鲜语系主任金教授直接交流,两位探讨得甚是投机,旁边的其他团员也只能微笑默默点头,大家装作都能听懂“思密达”。
