The Centre for Governance and Citizenship (CGC) held a seminar on “What is missing in internationalization of higher education in a time of globalization in the Asia-Pacific region?”, conducted by Dr. Ng Shun Wing on 29 January 2010 (Friday), 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm, at Room B3-P-13, Tai Po Campus.

Dr. Ng Shun Wing  is currently CGC Centre Research Fellow and Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Policy and Leadership, the Hong Kong Institute of Education. In this seminar, Dr. Ng will argue that preparing future leaders and citizens for a highly interdependent globe requires a higher education system where internationalization promotes cultural diversity and fosters civic and intercultural awareness, and where the internationalized curriculum is committed to the pursuit of the notion of global citizenship. Such internationalization of higher education contributes to building more than economically competitive and politically powerful states. It represents a commitment to the civic mission of international solidarity, human harmony and helps to build a climate of global peace.

Dr. Ng is also the Associate Director of the Asia Pacific Centre of Leadership and Change, the Hong Kong Institute of Education. He is the editorial board member of the international journal, Teacher Development. His research expertise is in: Educational Policies and Change; Civic and Citizenship Education; Higher Education and School Improvement.
