          Resources and needs
•   NENU has rich resources in teaching and learning. Over 40 teachers in English
    Department and e-business Department of Foreign Languages School can
    communicate in fluent English. Many teachers and researchers are interested
    in American studies (i.e. U.S Studies Center offering M.A and PhD degrees;
    Comparative Education Center, offering PhD degrees; Curriculum Design &
    Teaching Methodology Center, offering both MA and PhD degrees; American
    Literature Studies, offering MA degrees; Comparative Literature Studies,
    offering, PhD degrees; Linguistics and applied linguistics offering both M.A.
    and PhD degrees. Computer labs are available all over the two campuses,
    which make it possible to work on the internet for the course. Books and
    magazines are available in Chinese concerning issues of globalization and
    educational reforms. However, translations are needed from Chinese into
    English and references need updating when the materials are sorted out and
    compiled to use for the course and so on (ef. Budge is together with the group).
•   Name of the course needs to be changed into possibly Current World Studies
    or Globalization Studies (rather than globalization alone) in order to conform
    to the Chinese context or the current curriculum.
