2014 Maymester in China

Pub­lished on

From May 9 to 22, 2013, the Con­fu­cius Insti­tute co-​sponsored and taught por­tion of the Maymester course to China with 13 Pur­due stu­dents and 8 stu­dents from Copen­hagen Busi­ness School in Den­mark. A true cross-​cultural com­mu­ni­ca­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tive learn­ing, Amer­i­can and Euro­pean stu­dents stud­ied in China about mul­ti­cul­tural orga­ni­za­tions in China, learned basic Chi­nese and cal­lig­ra­phy, enjoyed the tremen­dous foods and tea, and of course, toured the cities exten­sively. The pro­gram has attracted great media atten­tion in Bei­jing when the stu­dents vis­ited Zhang Yiyuan Tea House and prac­ticed tea cer­e­mony as well. The “China in my eyes” photo con­test marks the end of the course. This video pro­duc­tion is a col­lec­tion of the course high­lights and shows the essence of col­lab­o­ra­tive Study Abroad expe­ri­ences between Amer­i­can and Euro­pean stu­dents in China.

The 2014 Maymester course will be once again co-​sponsored by the Con­fu­cius Insti­tute and we look for­ward to Pur­due stu­dents apply­ing for the course.
