Educating a New Generation of Students

Transferring knowledge and norms from Hong Kong to the mainland
Amy Liu Mei Heung and David Zweig
p. 73-86

Abstract

All Hong Kong universities have been actively influencing education in China since 1997. The major methods include: running an independent university in one case, and managing and transforming four colleges in another; training many mainland students in Hong Kong who upon graduation return there; and serving as a home base on the doorstep of the mainland from which academics can influence their colleagues across the border. This paper shows how all these methods transfer a new set of academic norms prevalent in Hong Kong to the mainland.
