On 26th September 2012 in Beijing, academics from the Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol and key global organisations participated in an international seminar sharing evidence on the topic of Educational Quality in China, Africa and UK. Delegates included staff from UNESCO, UNICEF and government ministry officials, as well as academics from Beijing Normal University and University of Bristol.  This meeting was the second collaborative event funded by the ESRC/DFID Improving Teacher Development and Educational Quality in China (ITDEQC) project, led by Professor Sally Thomas.  The aim was to facilitate dissemination of key research findings and sharing of good practice within and across low income and other countries.

I very much appreciate this ITDEQC project initiative bringing together researchers from different kinds of organisations [such as NGOs and universities] and different countries working on similar critical issues in education development in order to share good practice.

One of the papers was presented by Professor Zhu Xiaoman, UNESCO International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education (INRULED) “Perspectives on Enhancing Teacher Development in Poor Rural areas”;

Professor Xiaoman said “I very much appreciate this ITDEQC project initiative bringing together researchers from different kinds of organisations [such as NGOs and universities] and different countries working on similar critical issues in education development in order to share good practice.  I would very much like to emphasise the value and potential impact of this and future similar events of this kind to enhance international collaboration, an aspect that China is working to develop”
