Universities in Shanghai were encouraged to improve English-taught courses for international students at an annual conference at the Shanghai Academy of Educational Sciences on Jan 15.

Previous work on the issue was reviewed at the conference and the introduction of more high-quality courses to attract more international students was discussed.

Yang Weiren from the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission said at the conference that Shanghai has introduced 404 courses in the past seven years, 394 of which were recognized as high-quality courses. The courses involved 60 majors and 12 academic disciplines.

During this time period, over 60,000 international students attended English-taught courses in 34 universities in Shanghai and more than 400 teachers were trained to teach in English.

Shanghai publishes an annual report on its methods for improving English-taught courses, which serves as a reference for Chinese universities.

Yang said universities in Shanghai should work to ensure the quality of international education by accelerating the development of English-taught courses for international students.

Representatives from the Shanghai Ocean University, East China Normal University, and the East China University of Political Science and Law participated in the conference.
