It is hoped that as a result of this symposium such new ideas might be promoted effectively and made well known to encourage development in education.
Other important topics under discussion included different conceptions of what it means to engage in work in the modern age and in the future, and how education should meet the challenges these changes present, the importance of educational issues with reference to China’s unique cultural, geographical and linguistic characteristics, and developing theories on education with Chinese characteristics.
Also under discussion were the direction of education in the future, the modernisation of educational management, and the development of talented persons. Attention was directed towards cultural and bureacratic issues concerning education and the resolution of Chinese issues, with reference to international techniques at use in the field. The importance of psychological care was another important topic discussed, as something that must be developed alongside educational concerns, as education faces multi-faceted challenges including the physical, emotional and moral development of students.
