【中英艺术本科】 Provide an inclusive, multi sensory and enriching learning environment
Hi, my name is Ashley Morgan and I am a 3D Animation Lecturer at Wuhan University of Technology for the last four years of my career.
I came to China in 2012, I chose Wuhan as it was the most central city in China which seemed to have the perfect balance of modern and traditional society. I came to Wuhan with no understanding of the Chinese language beyond the basic survival words and phrases. From a young age I was obsessed with Chinese and Japanese Culture, so when the opportunity came to teach my passion for Animation in a country I had fallen in love with from my youth I took the chance.
It was a challenge, to move from my life in the UK to China and start fresh with no ability to communicate with the locals but it was fun nonetheless to just jump in the deep end and go for it.
I have been fortunate to be surrounded by supportive colleagues and friends in my time here at WUT. The challenges and experiences I have had in China have developed personal and professional growth and allowed me to encourage students at WUT’s School of International Education to embrace life overseas alongside their own passion/desire to be creative and expand their animation skill sets abroad.
I have over six years of teaching experience in the UK and China, and wherever work takes me, my field of interest in education is ‘Animation, Film and photography’. I have seen previous students studying overseas such as Art & Design students in the UK who have later gone on to progress their careers from the time spent here at WUT. To know I had played a small part in their progression motivates me as a teacher which in turn inspires students to follow peers’ achievements. There is nothing better than seeing your students achieve their potential with a little help and direction from yourself over their time in higher education.
I always aim to provide an inclusive, multi sensory and enriching learning environment for all learners, encourage personal development and support all in their chosen fields of interests. I am looking forward to continuing my professional practice and will continue to strive and grow as an education practitioner.
One of the most rewarding experiences to be had in this world, is to leave all you know behind, to take flight from your nest and drop yourself in another country, another culture and experience the world from other peoples perspectives.
