Continuing Education Classes for Expats in China

One thing I do miss about America is the grand amount of community and continuing education available to virtually anyone and much of it for free. I was stumbling through Illustratrator’s newest release on MAC yesterday and bemoaning the fact that even a book on the subject would be hard to come by or too expensive to ship or pick up in Hong Kong.

Coincidentally, two colleges contacted me about the possibility of low-residency Masters and Doctoral programs and Continuing Education. One school is based in the UK and one is in the US. Both have good reputations and a comprehensive offering of courses. Both asked me if I thought they could be successful in China with the expat community. I answered honestly that I hadn’t a clue, but that I would ask you.

Let me know your thoughts and please feel free to add a response or two to the poll.

    I have many thoughts on this. Have been chewing on the same issues. Let’s chat over a really, really, cold beer in GZ.

    Thanks Lonnie! I did what you said, the decreasing of the posts. I have seen this problem myself at times and even send the feedback but they keep telling me nothing is wrong. I think something is wrong with the them.
    btw you are a lucky guy to live in China. Saw the country for myself and its beautiful!

    I THINK see the problem: You have a 3 column blog.Decrease the size of your pictures below 370px and see if that does not pull it back in…

    I love your blog, women’s advocacy and your bravery in spite of persecution for speaking the truth….You are a blogsphere treasure!

    Wow. Never thought demand would be so high for continuing education classes. There must be at least a few well paid expats who took part in the above survey, it doesn’t seem like too many English teachers would be willing to fork over real money for classes on a Chinese salary.
