A group of Chinese and overseas teachers from Shanghai University (SHU) shared experiences in delivering courses to international students on June 26.

The salon attracted participation of leading professors, university officials and interested teachers.

Professor Fred Dervin from the University of Helsinki in Finland, who explored intercultural relationships with students at SHU, shared his ideas on delivering courses.

"I used to pay close attention to the students and encourage them to talk about their thoughts. That really works, as the youngsters enjoy talking and sharing in my classes," professor Dervin said.

Professor Kipton Jensen from Morehouse College in the US, said he takes advantage of recordings and videos to increase the students' awareness of America's political violence and non-violence during the 1960s.

Professor Shen Rui, who taught the US's cultural, class and stratum differentiation at SHU, introduced her ideas on perfectly matching various themes and teaching materials, which she thought can inspire the students and promote their further studies.

The teachers also had in-depth discussions on different teaching concepts and on clever ways to handle diversified cultural conflicts.

A school keen to promote its international image, Shanghai University has invited numerous overseas teachers to share their ideas and deliver multiple classes at the Chinese campus.
