Thinking About the Students as the Center: Taking the Problems and Solutions in Economics Teaching as an Example

Chunrong YU


Currently, there are several problems that exist in teaching micro economics in undergraduate colleges including little participation from students, weak connections between class content and reality, and consumed motivation by abstractive theories. There is just an opinion that colleges in China do not consider students as center of teaching, which results problem above. In this regard, it is necessary to change teaching and managing mode and move focus to student-centered teaching model. In addition, it should be to explore corresponding teaching method, improve students’ motivation, design teaching based on students’ knowledge and relate examples in life to theories as the foundation of teaching.
