Relationship between Arts Education Course System of Advanced Normal University and Arts Course of Middle School in China as well as an International Comparative Study

Xiaoguang LI


With the coming and development of the global knowledge economy in 21st century, social development and economic growth are more and more relying on knowledge and talents. As an important approach of intermediate level arts teachers training, arts education in advanced normal universities is bearing the educational responsibility of training middle school arts teachers with solid professional abilities, broad knowledge and talent in different aspects. In some of countries with developed education in the world, such as America, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, etc., the training of arts teachers is performed by comprehensive universities, while in China, the arts education system of advanced normal universities is mainly established centering on the professional arts college, which places emphasis on teaching of professional knowledge in both course setting and teachers’ arrangement of teaching content and ignores training on students’ education ability, resulting that arts graduates don’t have necessary comprehensive quality. As a result, arts education in middle school cannot be comprehensively performed.
How to accommodate arts education course setting in advanced normal universities to the system of arts education in the middle school with a reference to advanced educational experience in developed countries has become a main theme we have to discuss.
