NEW BOOK:

Media of Academics’ International Teaching JourneysInternational Academics' Teaching Journeys: Personal Narratives of transitions in Higher Education, edited by Anesa Hosein, Namrata Rao, Chloe Shu-Hua, and Ian Kinchin and coming out with Bloomsbury Press.

Foreward by Ruth Hayhoe.

While the global research university, with its German American roots, has much to offer, my personal hope is for a global revival of the normal university, which emerged in post-revolution France and reverberated across East Asia, as “shihan daigaku” in Japan, “shifan daxue” in China. “Shifan,” meaning “the teacher as a model,” embodies Confucian values that emphasize accountability to society, close and mutually respectful  teacher student relations and an integrated and morally explicit approach to knowledge development. This was the first higher education open to women in 19th century Europe and East Asia, and it is a model that has persisted in the context of Greater China, with five leading normal universities in the Mainland and one in Taiwan. It may be just one of the future models capable of challenging the dominance of the global research university and bringing back the legacy of civilizations other than the European. ~Ruth Hayhoe

CIDE FACULTY RECOGNITION:

The David E. Hunt Award for Excellence in Graduate Education recognises graduate faculty who foster an enriching teaching and learning experience and impact on graduate students, and demonstrate excellence in teaching and supervision at the graduate level. Professor Njoki Wane was nominated by a Njoki Wanegroup of 33 students. The lead nominator, Jacqueline Benn-John, a PhD candidate, describes Njoki’s teaching as follows: “Dr. Wane’s teaching incorporates Western epistemological knowledge with Indigenous knowledge, a unique and valuable approach to teaching applied and fostered by Dr. Wane beyond her classroom, extending to her research, community development work and activism.” Alumnus Ahmed Ali Ilmi, Lecturer, at the University Toronto Mississauga, in support of Njoki’s nomination, remarked: “Dr. Wane amazed me with the ways in which she paid attention to all her students, and ensured that they engaged in classroom discussions. One of the truly moving aspects of Dr. Wane’s teaching is her humble personality together with her skillful engagement strategies that enable her to create an inclusive learning environment in which learners from diverse social, ethnic, and sexual orientation backgrounds felt included. Her outstanding contributions to teaching and learning have made her a model scholar for many incoming students.”
