Reflection and Review of General Education Localisation Research in China

Jing LI, Wei FAN


With the reform of the general education curriculum in China’s higher education, scholars have universally recognized the importance of general education. The exploration of general education has evolved from the study of theory of attention to practice. General education aims to promote the comprehensive development of the quality of college students. However, the foundation of general education during its integration process is relatively weak in varying degrees of ‘the climate does not suit one’ phenomenon. Thus, combining localisation theory and practice of general education and analysing the factors that hinder the localisation process for the development of general education in China should be re-examined.
