About

Background

The education is the essence of the plan for hundred of years. With the development of science and technology and the gradual progress of economy and the society, the higher education is confronted with unprecedented chances and challenges. The report of 19th CPC National Congress points out it is the fundamental project to construct a great country with strong education; therefore, the education should be put in the first place, the education reform should be deepened and the education modernization should be paced so that the people are satisfied with the education. The Overall Plan for Promoting the Construction of World-Class Universities and Subjects points out the talents cultivation should be emphasized as the core status, setting the students’ growth as the starting point for all the work in the school. Many schools think that it is of great importance to innovate talents cultivation in the reform, a great number of universities in China initiated the “student-centered” teaching reform. However, the cultivation of students not only relies on teachers but also on the various departments in the education system. The teaching management staff in higher education plays the supportive role in management system. The teaching management is directly related with the quality of talents cultivation; supporting, leading and coordinating the teaching plan, operation and quality management. Currently, the system and methods of university teaching management focus on the knowledge transformation, inheriting the traditional “pyramids” management system and working style, spending much energy in implementing the indexes assigned from the school and nation level instead of caring for students. Therefore, how to establish the awareness of service of university teaching management staff? How to improve the working efficiency and competence and develop creativity by adopting the university management and meeting the demands of knowledge economy?

    对学生的管理理念是让学生自己管理自己。他必须有方向有目标,再有方法,而老师只是正确引导,没有直接教学生答案,让学生在学习过程中有无限的创造力,体验合作,体验发挥自己的能动性来完成任务。这样的老师更难。

  • 中国药科大学

    一直以来,我们的关注点多集中在对教师的发展支持,对教学管理人员的培训关注较少。现在学校推行教学改革,只有教学、教师变,而配套的行政管理体系和行政管理人员的思想观念跟不上是不行的。我们现在还是受到多年惯性的影响,重点在‘管’,缺乏支持和服务的思维。这次带一线教学管理人员来,就是让他们看到西浦的具体实践。这些实实在在的做法还是给我们学校老师思想上带来很大震动。

    回去之后我会将教学环节中评价指标的细化,与研究导向型教学目标的梳理,具体教学内容从研究导向型方面的优化,并优化下学期的课程(实验课)的课程项目,从身边问题出发,开展研究导向型教学,另外,改进考核方式与评分标准。
