HBUT International Office held the opening ceremony for the Fifth Bilingual Faculty Member Training Class, November 11, 2011. The objective of the training class is to improve the English proficiency of HBUT faculty members, enabling them to be engaged in bilingual teaching, collaborative research and scholarly exchange, and thus contribute to the development of HBUT international affairs. HBUT Vice-president Dong Shijie extended his good wishes and expectations to the trainees.
So far, around 200 HBUT faculty members have completed the language training classes and are undertaking bilingual teaching assignments. Some of them are planning to go abroad for further training or academic exchange in their specialized fields.
