This project’s aim is to innovate the Chinese Philology study programme at Palacký University in Olomouc with the following objectives:

  1. To improve the accessibility of learning materials;

The project will involve the establishment of a study portal, computerization of study materials and sources of information, the innovation of 6 core subjects (Conversation, Reading, Introduction to Chinese Studies, Chinese Literature, Geography of China, History of China), the introduction of 7 new subjects (Chinese Literature in Film, Introduction to the Study of Chinese Thought, Economic Geography of China, Knowledge Management in a Multicultural Environment with a Focus on China, Identity in the Chinese Cultural Sphere, Chinese Education, and Practical Experience in the Commercial Sphere) together with the innovation of the 3 electives (Chinese Semiotics, Contemporary Taiwan and IT for Chinese Studies). Sustainable outcomes for the project are to create a fully functional Portal of Chinese Studies which will continue to operate after the project’s completion, the use of innovative learning materials and methods, and in particular the continuation of education in subjects recently innovated or newly created. The project’s target group will include students of Chinese Philology at UP.  A portion of the subjects will also be innovated at the partner site Masaryk University in Brno.
