    For Immediate Release

    Beijing, China.
    On October 27th, 2010, Multiple Intelligences Institute (MII) and Beijing Institute of Education (BIE) host a signing ceremony to sign an agreement to offer the MII courses in China.  Around 100 people, including students of the current courses, representatives from preschools, elementary and secondary schools, and education experts attend the ceremony. 

    The date also marks the start of the first course, Multiple Intelligences in Early Childhood Education.  The Chinese course uses the original course in English as a base with the addition of practical cases from MI schools in China.  A team consisted of MII and BIE experts translated and modified the course content over several months of hard work.  BIE has also recruited renowned professors and researchers to be the instructors for the course. 

    The first course run was met with great enthusiasm and all the available spots were taken.  Plans to translate and localize the Primary and Secondary course have already begun.

    About 100 people attended the ceremony

    Executive Director of MII Jack Hsu and President of BIE Fang Li exchanged contracts
