A Comparative Study on the Influence of Cultural Attitudes of Chinese and British Art & Design Higher Education Learners on the Learning Process

On this page

The ability to locate, look at and solve problems, or called "creative thinking", is the core component of the learner-centred learning environment, and also one of the core abilities that learners should possess in creative arts higher education.

I will make a comparative study of the current mainstream creative art higher education courses in China and the UK from a multi-dimensional perspective, and deeply explore the cultural attitudes of students, schools, families and society in the design, organization and implementation of these courses in both countries. And how do these cultural attitudes differ? What do these differences reveal?

In the higher education of creative art in China, although the cultivation of creative thinking originates from the demand of social progress, it is still an "alien species" and tries to integrate with the local culture. In this process of integration, inadaptability from various aspects begins to show, which makes learners' creative thinking training effect greatly reduced. In order to create a sustainable learning-centred higher education environment for creative arts, it is a top priority to solve the integration problem of creative thinking cultivation.

I will discuss how to reduce the influence of cultural attitude on the setting and implementation of creative thinking cultivation in the course through a series of interviews, teaching, creation, forums, exhibitions and other activities carefully designed, organized and implemented through participatory action Research (PAR) in the educational environment, so as to improve the relevant abilities of learners.
