On December 16, Committee of 100 hosted a reunion for Bay Area-based teachers who participated in the 2012 China study tour program. Nine teacher-participants reflected on their China experience and its impact on their teaching methodology, as well as their views on China. C100 Southern California Regional Vice-Chair Stewart Kwoh presented an overview of C100 programs and C100 Member Leslie Tang Schilling provided a history of C100’s Summer Teachers Institute. C100 Bay Area members Daniel Chao and Lawrence Low read reflections on behalf of teachers not present during the program.
The Committee of 100 – Wanxiang Teaching Scholars program was launched in summer 2012. Program participants were science teachers who traveled to three cities in China on a theme-based study to explore new frontiers in clean technology and renewable energy. The Teaching Scholars Program is one of the Committee’s many educational programs which strengthen bilateral relations by inviting thought leaders from business, civic community, media, and education to China.
