To add a paper, Login.

A new teaching model is designed based on IT platform integrating four interconnecting modules: online teaching, small class tutorials, culture and performing arts lectures, and field trips to cultural sites. Cross-cultural issues in Pan-Asian studies, specifically in Silk Road studies, Sino-Korean studies and Chinese export porcelain studies, are greatly benefited from the new approach. Now that more than 3,000 volumes of classical Chinese texts written by Korean scholars over a millennium are available, cross-cultural issues can be studied from a new angle. With these new cross-cultural sources, research and teaching in social sciences will be different.
