2020, 39 (4):  1-6.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1003-305X.2020.04.199
Abstract ( 197 )   PDF (1155KB) ( 80 )  
This paper aims at gathering information and identifying problems of online learning from students' experience in TCM colleges and universities during COVID-19 outbreak. During the first two weeks teaching, we conducted nationwide online questionnaires covering 24 TCM colleges and universities as well as several in-depth telephone interviews. We collected 135,598 valid questionnaires and 16 in-depth telephone interviews. The findings show that the dimension of students' emotional cognition scored the highest, while other dimensions like learning motivation, learning behavior, learning experience and learning satisfaction scored higher than the theoretical averages. Nevertheless, the dimension of students' past online learning experience scored the lowest, not reaching the theoretical average. The paper points out that the overall online learning in TCM colleges and universities is quite satisfactory. However, further improvements should be made in online-teaching design from the perspectives of providing learning sources, promoting teacher-student interactions, to improving autonomous learning. More efforts should also be made to adopt blended teaching mode thus promoting the implementation of teaching and education reform.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has exerted serous impact on epidemic prevention and control as well as teaching of colleges and universities. It is a great challenge for educators to carry out teaching as planned in responding to the call of “non-stopping teaching and learning” by the Ministry of Education. However, higher education institutions are confronted with the fact that large-scale online teaching and learning are still lack of practice and experience. This paper first discussed the feasibility of online teaching under the epidemic. It then identified the following problems: there are too many online platforms and some of them have design defects; the platform systems are not running smoothly and online teaching are often conducted on peak hours; teaching concepts are traditional and learning is inactive; curricula need redesigning and classroom management is loosely regulated; formative assessments are rigid and feedbacks are not received timely. It also put forward some corresponding countermeasures to cope with the above problems. The paper provides some reference of online teaching for other colleges and universities.

Jiang Weiyan, Xue Yuxin, Li Xinyue, Zhao Yansong
2020, 39 (4):  73-77.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1003-305X.2020.04.316
Abstract ( 135 )   PDF (1066KB) ( 43 )  
Ideological and political education, which guides students to establish correct world outlook, view of life and values, is an important part of teaching content as well as an important way for university students to develop a correct understanding of themselves and the society. However, with the progress of society and the development of science and technology, there are more channels for students to acquire knowledge and the content is getting richer. Therefore, the single teaching mode can no longer meet the ideological and political education needs, and it is time to reform the methods of ideological and political teaching. The integration of ideological and political elements into TCM courses can not only guide students in their lives but also stimulate students' motivation and enthusiasm in their studies. From the perspective of students, this paper puts forward some thoughts and discussions on the purpose, mode, significance and influence of integrating ideological and political elements into TCM teaching. It also discusses ways to enrich the teaching content.

Tang Qiaoling, Song Jia, Sun Lingzhi, He Juan
2020, 39 (4):  82-85.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1003-305X.2020.04.241
Abstract ( 117 )   PDF (2436KB) ( 44 )  
Mind mapping, an effective visualized tool to display divergent thinking, has been widely used in education home and abroad. Doctrines of Different Schools in TCM encompasses many TCM doctors from various schools with different academic thoughts. The application of mind mapping can enable students to construct a net work linking scattered information, yet there are no reports on the application of this method.By introducing mind mapping into teaching, we find that it helps students to build a knowledge framework, and improves their learning efficiency. Mind mapping also helps teachers to guide teaching and learning outcomes of students. It indicates that the use of mind mapping in the teaching of Doctrines of Different Schools in TCM is effective and worth applying to other courses.
