北京西城区教育委员会
基础教育课程改革综合能力培训项目

北京市西城区教育委员会下属的各中小学十分重视中小学的课程改革。2015年,西城区教委从区内各高中、初中和小学中,选派骨干教师、校长等共25名,远赴美国明尼苏达大学进行为期三周的专项培训。培训内容包括:中小学的管理、中美基础教育学科教学理念的对比、美国中小学教师职业培训和职业发展的理解等课题。

代表团成员在明尼苏达大学学习生活了三周。在校期间,代表团参加了由中小学基础教育领域的专家主讲的讲座。这些专家中有明尼苏达大学里专研中小学教学法优化的资深教授,也有明州各中小学的校长,如明尼唐卡高中、英华中文沉浸式学院、圣安东尼初中的校长等。他们结合日常工作,以丰富的理论知识为基础,给代表团团员展示了美国中小学教育、管理中的方方面面。代表团成员不仅学习和对比了美国公立与私立中小学的异同,也被美国中小学生所展现的能力所吸引。
