Steinhardt Hosts Delegation of Teachers from East China Normal University

Steinhardt  Dean Mary Brabeck and Erich Dietrich, assistant dean for academic and global programs, hosted a delegation of faculty from East China Normal University in October. The representatives from China’s teaching college observed classes in communicative sciences and disorders, media, culture, and communication, physical therapy and occupational therapy, as well as applied psychology and teaching and learning, to learn about best practices in classroom administration.

“This visit continues to strengthen the longstanding ties between NYU and East China Normal University,” said Dietrich. “As our local partner in Shanghai, the university has played a pivotal role in the development of NYU’s presence there. In the future, we will continue to collaborate on educational exchange and the fostering of research and best practices in teaching.”
