After spending a sabbatical year in Hong Kong in 2008-09, working on a wide-reaching project to reform secondary and higher education, CTE Director Benson returned to the former British colony in June for an international conference on the proposed changes to general education and university curriculum.
Benson joined nearly 400 registrants from 17 countries in Asia to discuss Hong Kong’s experience in general education curriculum reform and the emerging role of liberal and general education as a priority throughout Asia. Hong Kong General Education Fulbright scholars have played a key role in developing and implementing Hong Kong’s educational reforms, some of which are due to take effect in September of this year.
