The successful holding of the first Shanghai University Teachers' Teaching Innovation Competition provided opportunities for higher education institutions in Shanghai to exchange teaching experience, display teaching style, improve teaching level and promote teaching development.
This competition not only guided our teachers to grasp the new situation, new mission and new requirements of the reform and development of undergraduate education more accurately, but also had great and far-reaching significance for the education and teaching innovation and the development of first-class majors and first-class curriculums in our university. It also encouraged more and more teachers of our university to devote to teaching, be willing to teach and be good at teaching, and constantly urged the teachers to establish the "student-centered, output-oriented and constantly improving” teaching concept.
