Education Seminar 

Session 1 
Time:        Sunday 03/23 9:40AM – 10:30AM
Presenter: Principal Lin Jun
Title: Sustainable Strategy of Oversea Chinese Schools: Professionalism & Volunteerism
Abstract: As a follow-up of Principal Lin’s previous presentation on the creation of an Assessment System as a Backbone, this talk will focus on the operating model of oversea Chinese schools. As most oversea Chinese schools are volunteers-run, non-for-profit organizations, sustainability becomes a major challenge pertaining to leadership and management team, managerial policy and procedures, program quality and student enrollment. He argues that volunteerism is asset rather than liability, but it should be transformed by mingling with professionalism along the dimensions of motivation, norms, process, system, and aspired outcomes. A theoretical model is proposed by relating team dynamics, competency, and succession to sustainable advantage. Implications on experiential learning, knowledge transfer, socialization, team building, structure of informal organization, and the sustainability of Chinese schools are discussed.
摘要: 延续建立教学评估体系、改善教学的基础设施建设角度探索海外中文学校的办学战略,本报告着重于如何有机结合志愿精神与专业精神,使海外中文学校在领导团队、管理制度、教学质量和招生等方面实现长期持续发展。志愿精神与专业精神体现在动力、规范、行为方式、管理系统和期待效果等方面的不同。 海外中文学校应克服志愿者运行、非营利性带来的不足,从团队建设、知识与竞争力培养、领导传承等几方面促成可持续发展。应根据海外办学的特点,发挥能动性,创建规范性,从组织过程的各个方面着手,探索海外中文学校的可持续战略。
