北京石油化工学院 教师专业化发展及教学团队建设培训项目

北京石油化工学院一直秉持着这样一种教学理念,即以卓越的教育来培养杰出的人才。出于对这样一种先进的教学理念的理解,北京石油化工学院派出了第二批以学院骨干教师为主的10人培训团。培训项目主要围绕着教育理念的提升、教师专业化发展及优秀教学团队建设而展开。此次培训时间为2015年8月9日到28日。中国中心同来自教育创新中心的教职员工合作,为北京石油化工代表团成员设计了一系列帮助他们探索美国先进高等教育教育法与教育理念的讲座。同时,代表团成员通过与明大的教授的沟通交流,也都研究出可以将讲座上的所学转化为个人课堂上可以运用的教学方法。

在明大培训期间,代表团成员积极参与到培训讲座中,通过对美国大学真实课堂教学的体验,深入了解了美国大学的课堂设置。通过与明大教职员工的积极互动,从中体会并深刻学习到了中美高等教育的区别。在明大访问期间,代表团成员也一并考察了明尼苏达大学德鲁斯分校和奥古斯堡大学,从而深刻体会了美国多样化的大学环境与氛围给学生带来的不同影响。
