about this item

This book uses a mixed-method approach to address the topic of personal epistemology among Chinese engineering doctoral students from U.S. institutions.--It presents a broad view of the epistemological development among Chinese engineering students from five U.S. Midwestern doctoral programs. Meanwhile, it provides practical examples from students’ academic experiences to showcase their thinking development and behavioral patterns.
It allows readers to gain an understanding of Chinese engineering students’ academic lives in U.S. institutions through a cognitive theoretical lens. It also highlights a number of factors that can potentially facilitate adult students’ cognitive development, and extends the discussion on the benefits of study-abroad and cross-cultural education to the epistemological domain.
