Educational Innovation Excellence Course-Member Project

Institute of Leadership and Education Advanced Development

The “Educational Innovation Excellence" course, launched by ILEAD, aims to construct and enhance a communication platform, linking higher education practitioners. This course brings together colleagues who are passionate about higher education reform and innovation, assisting the career development of higher education practitioners and promoting their professional and life-long learning competence, discovering new modes for higher education in China and beyond.

In the first year of the course, ILEAD recruited 564 members from 37 institutions. In 2017, ILEAD held several members' activities both online and offline, including the debate competition, “ Is it hard to balance teaching and research?”; a career talk from the University's Executive President, Professor Xi; the double “Chen” teaching innovation activity; and the workshop "Version Update from 1.0 to 4.0: Promoting Teaching via Assessment," which was focused on course design based on formative assessment.
