Several Mason Korea faculty members taught middle school and high school students in the Incheon area this spring and summer as part of educational programs to serve local communities.
From May to June, Dr. Yingji Jin, a professor of Chinese, taught conversational Chinese and “Introduction to China and the Chinese Language” for five weeks at Incheon High School. The program was part of the Incheon High School Credit Program run by the Incheon School Board.
The program will continue in the fall with Dr. Roland Wilson, a professor of Conflict Analysis and Resolution, who will teach a series of classes for high school students.
In June, Dr. Lynnette Leonard and Professor Claude Drolet, who teach communication at Mason Korea, taught a series of communication classes to some 20 students from Neunghuhdae Middle School. Dawn Oh, a rising senior, served as a student assistant for the program, which was part of the 2022 Global Leadership Program.
In July, Dr. Eunmee Lee, a professor of English for Academic Purposes, taught "Introduction to Communication" at Choeun High School. Students enjoyed learning about different ways to communicate effectively in English, and Dr. Lee plans to continue reaching out to local high schools to inspire students to communicate in multilingual settings.
Mason Korea's Office of Community Relations plans to continue collaborating with schools in Incheon to engage with local communities and support educational initiatives.
