    During the outbreak of COVID-19, colleges students are required to stay at home and learn online. This new situation has imposed such challenges to college students as information overload, trauma stress, psychological changes, crisis of trust, safety of going abroad, and employment. This paper provides the understanding of epidemic situations and information of the major events during the epidemic periods from the perspective of TCM specialists. Together with the past experiences of epidemic psychological impacts on college students, this paper highlights the outstanding contributions of medical staff in fighting against epidemics, emphasizes the party’s strong leadership and the unity of the people during the epidemic outbreak, and stresses the significant role TCM in battling the epidemic. Guided by the above principles, colleges students are facilitated to adjust their attitudes, re-identify their goals, reconstruct their habits to get rid of negative emotions. Besides, stories of those dedicated people and their bravery deeds should be gathered, designed into course cases in combination with TCM knowledge. The author believes that the implementation of well-designed courses will not only enhance students’ enthusiasm for TCM, sense of national pride, and their self-esteem, but also stabilize their state of mind, as well as restoring their optimistic and positive learning state.

    San Yi Zhi Yi, which literally means the diagnosis and treatment in accordance with time, place and individuality, is a traditional humanistic concept and has always been the value pursuit of TCM. We should advocate the concept of San Yi Zhi Yi and the orientation return of the concept of “humanistic value” in the management in TCM colleges and universities. We promote the teaching reform, teacher development and management reform in the new era from the three aspects: multiple approach to cultivate students, individualized approach to promote teachers, and once-for-all approach to improve administrative efficiency.

    2020, 39 (3):  51-54.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1003-305X.2020.03.015
    Abstract ( 251 )   PDF (690KB) ( 37 )   Save
    Pathological terms are very important components of TCM terminology, most of them, however, do not have the corresponding counterparts in Western medicine semantically. These terms are rich in connotation with profound cultural backgrounds. The translation of these pathological terms have already been undertaken while the research on the translation approaches has hardly been explored so far. From the perspective of “faithfulness” and guided by criteria of optimal approximation in translation, this paper takes “duanxie” from Synopsis of Golden Chamber as an example, analyzing its connotation and differentiating all the existing English translation versions to discuss translation approaches and provide translation suggestions. This paper also discusses how the translation approaches of TCM terms could be used in further translation practice and teaching by applying 3W teaching mode.

    In order to achieve the educational goal of establishing the correct ideas and developing good moral character, the ideological and political ideas and resources should be implicitly integrated into the explicit professional knowledge. As students in the new era are characterized by Net natives who are familiar with the Internet, teachers should make the best use of this feature and apply Rain Classroom mode to facilitate students’ autonomous learning rather than dictating their learning. Teachers should cultivate students’ TCM thinking and research innovation by telling students stories of TCM masters, enlighten them to understand the meaning of life by appreciation lives of herbs, and enhance students’ confidence in TCM culture by quoting Xi Jinping’s speeches on herbs, traditional Chinese medicine and the youth.After two years of exploration in Medicinal Botany, we constructed an ideological and political mode based on Rain Classroom.

    2020, 39 (3):  82-85.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1003-305X.2020.03.024
    Abstract ( 228 )   PDF (618KB) ( 61 )   Save
    Chinese Medical History and Literature is characterized by its own uniqueness and requirements apart from the general characteristics of Classical Chinese. Therefore, the teaching should consider both the general and particular features, that is, the teaching should integrate the generality of Classical Chinese to the particularity of Chinese Medical History and Literature. In terms of teaching content, we should not only retain the advantage of three-combined elements: selective readings, general theories and basic knowledge, and commonly used words, but also integrate classics of Chinese Medical History and Literature. Teaching methods should also be multiple to facilitate students’ ability to solve problems.
