The “Transnationalism and America” project funded by the Lingnan Foundation and taking place at Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) in Guangzhou indicates that Chinese professors, graduate students, and undergraduates can all learn from interdisciplinary inquiry and team-teaching methodologies. Exciting and challenging as it may be, team teaching by professors from different cultures and speaking different languages is not an easy task for any of the participants. During the three-year program, the Chinese and American team set up several courses identified in this chapter, some of them were offered more than once in the Humanities and Medical Faculties—on both the Guangzhou and Zhuhai campuses. The chapter introduces the pedagogy adopted for the project, compares it with the traditional teaching methodology implemented in Chinese universities, and evaluates various aspects of the two teaching modes.
