    US Education Undergraduates Visit YCIS Beijing

    On January 10, a select group of 15 undergraduate students from the University of Illinois visited YCIS Beijing to learn more about international education. The students are currently studying at the University’s College of Education and their areas of study include Primary, Secondary and Special Needs education. Throughout the day, the undergraduates were given the opportunity to take part in class observations involving literacy and witnessing first-hand how the unique Co-teaching model at YCIS Beijing works in practice. Co Principals Wayne Richardson and Christine Xu also met with the students to discuss global education in the 21st century and future education trends and the international curriculum at the school.

    In addition to these activities, the students from Illinois were invited to a question and answer session with the Co-Principals and Primary Co-ordinator Dairne Fitzpatrick to gain useful information about teaching and advice that could help them not only within their study but also their future teaching careers. The students were thoroughly impressed with the school, noting in particular the exemplary behaviour of the students at YCIS Beijing. YCIS Beijing has always been highly regarded among the top universities in the world with regular visits from overseas educational delegations and students each year. It was at the University of Illinois where YCIS Beijing owner and educator Dr Betty Chan achieved her masters and doctorate degrees and it is her mission and vision that has led to YCIS Beijing being regarded in such high esteem as a leader in global education.
