The University has attached great importance to cultivation of talents with competence in innovation. We have been guiding faculties in exploring new ideas, new methods and new means in teaching so as to deepen reform of class-teaching, facilitate in-depth integration of information technology and teaching, and enhance the capacities in using information technology. The faculties are encouraged, via attending various teaching competitions and demonstration of model classes, to conduct reform on teaching methodology. A number of new teaching methods have been applied in our education, such as case studies, mission-driven (project) teaching, discussions, heuristic teaching, research-oriented teaching, and integration of industry-school-research.
This Competition further facilitates exchange and communication between BISTU and higher educational institutions in North China, expands our academic influence, and demonstrates our achievements in respect of reform of lab teaching.
