在教了许多年的国际关系专业课之后,当我决定开一门《和平与冲突》全校公选课的时候,我是经过很多思想斗争的,因为开公选课在大学来讲是一个吃力不讨好的事情。但我对和平的渴望,对当前各种层次冲突的频频发生,以及日渐疏远的人际关系的担忧还是坚定了我自己开设《和平与冲突》课程的决心。 《和平与冲突》的教学目标中有一点与其它的自然科学、社会科学课程不同的是要引导学生积极向上,培育内心的和平种子,能以建设性态度来对待面临的各种冲突,这其实包含了一种积极的价值指引。 《和平与冲突》课堂的关键创新之处是通过“协作”,让学生在开放的学习空间中尽情“体验”,“共创”知识,真正实现“以学生为中心”,并达到积极的价值指引的效果,通过“协作”和“体验”,在学生心中种下和平的种子。

主题式雅思教学的融合创新--Integrated Innovation of Theme-Based IELTS Teaching

“主题式雅思教学的融合创新”可以用"3344"这四个数字来囊括,即“3分学、3分练、4分管和4大融合”,主要针对学生雅思口语和雅思写作这两个最薄弱的输出环节。 "3分学"指的是教师不管在录网课还是进行课堂教学,都必须反复打磨自己的教学内容。 "3分练"指的是教师既要重视高质量的教学内容输入,更要注重学生对于雅思听力和阅读内容的吸收和对雅思口语写作环节中精准输入的内容吸收之后再输出等能力的训练。 "4分管"有2分在于教师对学生学习过程中的及时的辅导答疑和口语写作的当面批改,1分在于O2O的教学系统对于学生学习的自适应性调整管理,最后1分在于学生时间管理能力的培养。 "4大融合"是指"语言知识教学和技能语言培养融合、输入与输出模块融合、雅思和大英教学融合、线上录播课程与线下中外教联合授课融合"
