  • There are plenty of ideology, experience and pedagogy that Western education can learn from the East. In order to learn from each other, we need to understand the cultural difference first. Western education can try to make the process of class more efficiently and productively via three ways: taking the time and effort to recognize both the differences of mindsets and perspectives of students in advance; making sure a project starts with full understanding; articulating the brief and direction clearly and getting the workforce working together productively and collaboratively. Try to treat students with your loving heart, Western educators will be surprised how much they can learn form their Eastern students and receive much more than you give.
