For the four weeks between Monday, May the 12th and Friday, June the 6th, APU has been holding a special conference for four executive administrative directors from China's Chongqing Medical University.
The executive directors have attended special lectures by APU faculty and staff, learning about APU's management policies, education programs and student support services. They have also been observing regular student lectures, and attending APU administrative meetings. They plan on using the information they have acquired towards the better management of Chongqing Medical University.
In a special lecture entitled "About APU's Education Program", held on the 14th of May 2008, APS Professor PORTER Edgar introduced APU's pro-active method in using discussion for decision making processes and the adoption of English interviews for evaluating faculty. The lecture was also attended by five Korean officials, including Ulsan city officers who were visiting APU for a separate training program. All participants were then involved in a lively exchange of opinions and experiences.
