Adult Learning Overview Typical adult learning theories encompass the basic concepts of behavioral change and experience. From there, complexities begin to diverge specific theories and concepts in an eclectic barrage of inferences. Up until the s basic definitions of learning were built around the idea of change in behavior Merriam and Caffarella,
Chinese Eugenics China has been running the world's largest and most successful eugenics program for more than thirty years, driving China's ever-faster rise as the global superpower. I worry that this poses some existential threat to Western civilization.
Yet the most likely result is that America and Europe linger around a few hundred more years as also-rans on the world-historical stage, nursing our anti-hereditarian political correctness to the bitter end.
When I learned about Chinese eugenics this summer, I was astonished that its population policies had received so little attention.
China makes no secret of its eugenic ambitions, in either its cultural history or its government policies. For generations, Chinese intellectuals have emphasized close ties between the state guojiathe nation minzuthe population renkouthe Han race zhongzuand, more recently, the Chinese gene-pool jiyinku.
Many scientists and reformers of Republican China were ardent Darwinians and Galtonians.
They worried about racial extinction miezhong and "the science of deformed fetuses" jitaixueand saw eugenics as a way to restore China's rightful place as the world's leading civilization after a century of humiliation by European colonialism.
The Communist revolution kept these eugenic ideals from having much policy impact for a few decades though.
Qualitative content analysis of a national curriculum invites further study into how wellbeing is understood and experienced by students and teachers, and how their views align with the intended curriculum. In your practice area, what trends do you anticipate influencing curriculum content and structure in the next decade? Preventative medicine will be increasingly important in shaping the curriculum of future students in the field of healthcare. Academic Legal English is a required course for students enrolled in the Two-Year LL.M. Program. This year-long course is designed to help prepare students for the linguistic and intellectual demands of LL.M. study at a law school in the U.S.
Mao Zedong was too obsessed with promoting military and manufacturing power, and too terrified of peasant revolt, to interfere with traditional Chinese reproductive practices.
But then Deng Xiaoping took power after Mao's death. Deng had long understood that China would succeed only if the Communist Party shifted its attention from economic policy to population policy. He liberalized markets, but implemented the one-child policy —partly to curtail China's population explosion, but also to reduce dysgenic fertility among rural peasants.
Throughout the s, Chinese propaganda urges couples to have children "later, longer, fewer, better"—at a later age, with a longer interval between birth, resulting in fewer children of higher quality.
With the Maternal and Infant Health Law known as the Eugenic Law until Western opposition forced a name changeChina forbade people carrying heritable mental or physical disorders from marrying, and promoted mass prenatal ultrasound testing for birth defects.
Deng also encouraged assortative mating through promoting urbanization and higher education, so bright, hard-working young people could meet each other more easily, increasing the proportion of children who would be at the upper extremes of intelligence and conscientiousness.
This includes economic power GDP, natural resources, energy, manufacturing, infrastructure, owning America's national debtmilitary power cyberwarfare, anti-aircraft-carrier ballistic missiles, anti-satellite missilesand 'soft power' cultural prestige, the Beijing Olympics, tourism, Chinese films and contemporary art, Confucius Institutes, Shanghai's skyscrapers.
But crucially, Comprehensive National Power also includes "biopower": Chinese biopower has ancient roots in the concept of "yousheng" "good birth"—which has the same literal meaning as "eugenics".
For a thousand years, China has been ruled by a cognitive meritocracy selected through the highly competitive imperial exams. The brightest young men became the scholar-officials who ruled the masses, amassed wealth, attracted multiple wives, and had more children. The current "gaokao" exams for university admission, taken by more than 10 million young Chinese per year, are just the updated version of these imperial exams—the route to educational, occupation, financial, and marital success.What trends or developments in DE do you see influencing the field the most (and in your response, be sure to include a reference to a scholar who agrees or disagrees with you)?
I forsee more use of MOOCs to support large numbers of students. But if you devote your time instead to thinking about what the brain, hormones, genes, evolution, childhood, fetal environment, and so on, have to do with behavior, as I do, it seems simply impossible to think that there is free will.
