Teaching skills are being shared between Timmins and a school in China.

Northern College brought in two professors from a partner school in Chongqing, China to learn about local teaching methods. President Fred Gibbons says the teaching styles are very different between the two schools.

Gibbons says the professors learned about teaching with a more interactive approach.

He says this is the fourth group of professors to come to Timmins this academic year, and more will be flying to Canada in February.
