The Research and Practice on Teaching Reform of the Comprehensive Experiment of Microbiology

Jin-Ping Yan, Shu-Wei Dong, and Li Liu

Abstract—Microbiology is an important foundation course for life sciences education which has intense theoretical and practical characteristics. However, the current experiment teaching system cannot meet the requirement of international engineering education accreditation well. To improve the teaching efficiency of microbiology experiment course, the current situation of this course for students studying bio-engineering is analyzed. Integrating requirements of engineering education accreditation and professional features, a comprehensive experimental project and experimental assessment mode were explored to cultivate students’ motivation and innovation consciousness. It was proved in practice that teaching reform had posed a positive effects on cultivating the inter-disciplinary talents and meeting the need of the social development. Through the experimental scheme, the students effectively obtained the abilities to design and implement experiments, and to analyze and to solve problems. The teaching reform fulfilled the requirements of the professional accreditation standard in engineering education.

Index Terms—Microbiology experiment course, comprehensive experiment, teaching reform.
