"General Education courses provide me the opportunity to reflect and re-organize my courses to introduce history to non-majors; to re-visit the way to communicate the past events in history to the general public. By teaching these General Education courses, I always re-discover the joy of learning alongside with my students."

Teaching Philosophy

I am honoured to receive the Exemplary Teaching Award in General Education. This award is particularly meaningful to me, as it recognizes my efforts in teaching and reminds me the wonderful experience of meeting students from different backgrounds over the past few years.

Most of our undergraduate students show their interests in history, but some also have negative views. For example, students believe they have to memorize a lot of materials about the past, which appear to be useless and boring and hence, wasting their time. As a history teacher, I try to make history alive for my students, especially for those who are not history majors. I try to arouse their interests and curiosity. I believe that it is important to develop courses in which students could learn to apply historical contents and methodology to they own disciplines.

The goals of my General Education courses are to help students gain some basic and fundamental ideas in histories; and to help them critically analyze and interpret the eras/ideas in Chinese history, focusing on important individuals, personalities, ideas and social events in history that have shaped the present societies. In each of the classes, I have deployed a variety of teaching methods to make my lessons lively and interesting. I would show excerpts of some movies to help students visualize an historical event. Outside the classroom, I have also organized some field trips and interviews so that students could learn history from the fields. Students would be guided to read historical materials for pleasure by researching their own family's genealogy, caring about the minority groups, telling stories of their past, or travelling and visiting historic sites and museums.

General Education courses provide me the opportunity to reflect and re-organize my courses to introduce history to non-majors, and to re-visit the way to communicate the past events in history to the general public. By teaching these courses, I always re-discover the joy of learning alongside with my students. I hope that they will have broadened their horizons, and have had richer and more interesting lives as a result of their enhanced interests and enjoyment in studying history through my General Education courses.
