Research shows that adviser/advisee relationship is one of the most critical interactions in graduate education and this dynamic can vary substantially by country, institution and disciplinary fields. While the number of international students is increasingly growing worldwide, there is still little information on tradition, values, and dynamics that rule the adviser/advisee relationship in different countries. To contribute to this effort, the UW's Center for Innovation and Research in Graduate Education (CIRGE) is conducting a series of panel talk about adviser/advisee in different countries. This time, the conversation will be centered on China with Chinese professors who are visiting our universities, and the College of Education.
