Abstract

The course of Principles of Economics is compulsory for first year students who major in economics or management. To the end of providing quality higher education for foreign students in China, it still needs exploration as regards how to integrate new perspectives from the Chinese economic development and reforms into the existing knowledge system and make a breakthrough. Based on changes in practices and demand for professionals, the teaching content is to be restructured into a problem-oriented progressive system from fundamentals to explorations encouraging students’ contribution. To better practice the outcomes-based education (OBE), we utilize the resources generated from cooperation with leading enterprises and integrate students’ business practices into teaching, with a view of improving students’ capabilities of learning by doing. Blended teaching modes and various online teaching activities are explored to inspire curiosity and enhance efficiency, which is of particular importance during the COVID19.
