This chapter provides an alternative perspective to rethink educational research in China and Australia, from Chen's work on Asia as method. It shows a case study of how the Western term 'network governance', localized in process of Chinese education policy-making. In order to show the inclusivity and adaptivity of Asia as method, in various fields and in different contexts, by exploring the explanatory power of Asia as method at the specific operational level. Based on research fields and interests, how Asia as method is implicated in educational research is discussed through bringing traditional Chinese culture to the West. Drawing on Chen's view of Asia as method, provides three different research cases to explore how Asia as method works in educational research concerning Chinese educational issues. By discussing network governance theory in the West, this case argues that the notion of Mohe, which is derived from traditional Chinese culture, can offer flexibility to accommodate actors in the Chinese education policy arena.
