Dr. Lei Yan: Education in America
On the morning of April 23, Dr. Lei Yan, Technical Director of Emperor Hank, will give an academic report entitled "Application of Antibiotic Substitutes in Feeds" at the invitation of Sunbird Livestock Resistance-free Development Conference. In the report, she will share the feasibility of forbidding feeding antibiotics from three aspects: the evolution of feeding antibiotics, the current situation of using antibiotics, and alternatives. Through the use of effective substitutes, improve nutrition supply, improve the level of feeding management, and create a good breeding environment can effectively alleviate a series of production pressures caused by the use of less or prohibited antibiotics. Dr. Ray has been devoted to the study of food intake regulation. In addition to studying in Korea, he has also been entrusted by the company to study in the United States by Professor Lei Xingen of Cornell University, a scholar of the Yangtze River. During his stay in the United States, he has gained a detailed understanding of American university education and has formed the article "American Education", which is shared with you today.
In the United States, primary school plays, middle school jogs, College sprints, from infants to athletes, college education is a sprint stage. In China, elementary schools and middle schools are playing with their lives while universities are playing with their studies. This state of affairs is heartbreaking. Experience of American education, let me feel the gap, but also feel a sense of urgency and pressure. Recently, I read an article entitled How American Teachers Tell Cinderella's Story, which shocked me more than a lot of heavyweight comments and analysis. This angelic teacher brings his children love, solidarity, rational thinking and the meaning of life. Under such education, how can children not have love, how can they be bound by certain rules and restrictions?
This trip to the United States was very lucky, not long, but I felt the summer vacation and the beginning of school in the United States. In fact, the opening of school is similar to that of other countries. Parents sent to school, arrived at school, with the help of enthusiastic elders and sisters, and there were recruitment activities of various social groups. At that time, the whole campus was full of youthful colors, I seem to have returned to 10 years ago, when I first entered the university, for everything in the university is full of surprise and expectations. In American universities, the school does not arrange courses for students, but provides courses. Students choose courses according to their own interests and development directions, and with the advice of Academic Advisor. One to two weeks after the start of the school, you can change your course selection, which is nicknamed Shopping Week by the students. Therefore, there will often be a professional classmate but basically not in a classroom. American college students are no less hardworking than our peers from countries with a tradition of overhanging beams and piercing stocks. Their study pressure is very high. Every year in Cornell, students commit suicide because of great pressure, which leads to wire mesh protection around the bridge of the school. Every corner building, activity room, lawn and cafe in the school has the figure of reading. In the early morning, the library is still brightly lit. Keyboard tapping in the computer lab keeps going one after another.
This time, I went to the United States, taking advantage of their classes, not for another reason, just to feel the atmosphere of American College classes. A large amount of reading, presumably for this point, you should have heard that a large number of classroom reading in the United States is inevitable. This kind of reading, I think, is also the way teachers let students keep up with teaching ideas. Compared with domestic education, we have been doing the same thing, but the way is more limited to textbook reading, and more dependent on problem sets. Besides reading, classroom communication also impressed me deeply. In the online class, teachers are very free to teach, students can ask questions at any time, they can also go to the toilet at will, students will also have the phenomenon of eating, but the classroom order is very good, remember that in the online class, the teacher asked how an American person contacted people in a small mountain village in China. At that time, students put forward a variety of programs, most people said that they could use Face. Suddenly, a student said, "Facebook can't work in China." It caused a lot of laughter in the hall. In the process of questioning, I noticed that the students did not have to stand up to answer, and raised their hands to indicate that the teacher would basically use "It's a good / excellent question" a s the beginning or end of the answer. I think this simple sentence not only conveys the tradition of classroom communication in the United States, but more importantly, it lets me see that Americans treat questions equally as a result of hard thinking. They don't think that the only meaning of thinking is to get results, that is, no result or answer does not mean that efforts go down the drain. This is an academic attitude that I think is worth learning from. Of course, there are many things worth mentioning, such as the diversification of classroom forms, in the campus often see students sitting in groups of three or five in the lawn to teach, class is not limited to the classroom, the diversification of assessment methods (papers, activity records...) Wait a minute, and to my surprise, the traditional exams are still very much valued and dominate the grading. But American students are very willing to challenge professors. They can debate with professors in class, and debate their answers and professors after examinations to get scores. Professors also fully respect every student and are willing to listen and communicate. Compared with the familiar Chinese-style classroom, the American classroom is richer in form and more relaxed in atmosphere, but it is more meticulous in dealing with knowledge and more self-learning after class. Professors are also very good at stimulating students'thirst for knowledge and solving problems. remember
