Teaching reform research project of Wuhan Institute of Technology
The tutorial system for undergraduates is an important method to deepen the reform of engineering education, to promote first-class education for undergraduates, to improve talent training quality, and to facilitate individualized development. A case study of the tutorial system in the School of Civil Engineering and Architecture in Wuhan Institute of Technology was conducted. The experience and achievements in the past eight years were summarized, and the deficiencies and shortcomings were analyzed. Relevant suggestions such as strengthening theory propaganda, clarifying the detailed missions of the tutorial system, enhancing the rewarding and punishing system, stimulating teachers’ and students’ enthusiasm, developing individualized and comprehensive plans, promoting team-work collaborations and increasing corresponding supports, building an interactive platform are put forward, in order to improve the efficiency of the tutorial system, contribute an all-round growth of the undergraduate’ s competency and improve the school’s education quality.
