Principle of moral education
We will argue that "moral education” is an umbrella term for two quite different tasks and approaches. The first, which might better be called moral "socialization” or "training,” is the task of nurturing in children those virtues and values that make them good people. Of course, good people can make bad judgments; it's often not easy to know what is morally right. The second task of moral education is to provide students with the intellectual resources that enable them to make informed and responsible judgments about difficult matters of moral importance. Both are proper and important tasks of schools—and both cut across the curriculum.
Psychology of Development
This course is for all those who want to find out what psychology can tell us about the nature and development of children. This study is intended for students of psychology , those training to work with children in a variety of professional roles, or anyone just interested in understanding how children develop.
This course is organized around several questions - or sets of questions - about teaching, learning, and schooling. Together, these sets of questions will lead us through an analysis of what's going on in schools and classrooms today and how teachers should behave to maximize student learning. As you may guess, these are not simple questions or issues and... what makes it more difficult... is that there is enormous disagreement about the answers to these questions! Our course has six units and the units and their corresponding question sets include:
Unit 1: What does good teaching look like? Unit 2: What do 21st century schools and classrooms look like? Unit 3: How have we tried to reform education? Unit 4: Is our system of education really in that much trouble? Unit 5: How can kids possibly be bored in school? Unit 6: How can we teach in ways that are deeply engaging?
School of Physical Education
This lecture course – INTRODUCTORY PSYCHOLOGY is designed to present students with a general knowledge of Psychology, including its definition, research methods, and main research domains: i.e., sensation and perception, learning, memory, language and thought, consciousness, intelligence, personality, emotion, motivation, psychological disorders and intervention, social cognition, interpersonal processes, and other topics will be discussed in this lecture. The course is accessible to all the undergraduates except the Psychology majors, who will be admitted to specific curriculum. Therefore, the professor and teaching assistants will concentrate on introducing full-range while elementary phenomena and researches, instead of investigating selected domains or topics in depth. In the end of the semester, students are expected to acquire an understanding of primary concepts, theories and methodologies in general psychology. Moreover, the interest developed in this course may lead students to apply the psychological theories to daily life and get prepared for advanced courses.
Statistic Package for Social Science
This course provides an overview of the widely-used statistical methods in scientific research and the fundamentals of using the SPSS Base System. The course introduces the interfaces and functions of SPSS and teaches the skills necessary to perform a variety of statistical analyses with both user-friendly interface and syntax. The topics of this course include an overview of SPSS, managing data, creating and editing charts and tables, describing variables, conducting t tests, one-way ANOVA, multi-way ANOVA, correlation, regression and advanced statistical methods like nonparametric analyses, factor analysis, reliability analysis and etc. This course has a companion course "SPSS advanced statistics – laboratory”, which is to be taken at the same time.
Foundations of Computer Application
The basic knowledge of computer, computer operating system, multimedia technology, graphic image processing base, the application of office software, computer network and Internet application.
Probability Theory and Statistics
Basic probability, Statistical inference,Estimation ,Testing ,Regression
This course is designed to help the students expand the principles, functions and concepts of educational management and how they apply in their own workplace.
Education measurement and evaluation
This course can provide educators and aspiring research professionals with knowledge in testing theory, assessment theory and research methodology. Students enrolled in this course learn both how academic tests are designed, structured and implemented and how to assess the effectiveness of any test by measuring its results before making necessary changes.
Education Science Research methods
This course stresses the scientific aspects of educational research that center on hypothesis formulation and hypothesis testing. Students are encouraged to design studies that address important and current educational issues, gather data to shed light on these issues, analyze these data, and derive conclusions based on their analyses. The strengths and limitations of various educational research designs, and the types of instruments used to measure educational outcomes, will be emphasized.
This course provides an overview of learning, motivational, and developmental theories with a focus on their application to the field of education. Educational research addressing the powerful role of the educator, effective teaching strategies, and curriculum decision making are discussed. Theory and research based practices to reach all learners in an educational environment are emphasized.
This course is designed to teach introductory concepts in statistics as applied in the social sciences, particularly education. The course will provide a basic understanding of commonly used statistics to prepare students for more advanced statistics courses. Students will learn both conceptual and technical aspects of location and dispersion measures, regression and correlation, hypothesis testing, z-tests, t-tests and analysis of contingency tables. Proficiency with algebra is helpful; however, no mathematics beyond algebra will be taught in this course.
History of Chinese Education
History of foreign education
Modern educational technology
This course is for individuals who want a broad practical course in learning how to integrate emerging technologies into elementary and secondary classrooms. Students will take a constructivist approach to understanding educational technology as articulated in the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers.
Introduction to Logic
The cotents of this course include logic of propositions, logic of terms, logic of predicates, and inductive logic, non-formal logic.
Social psychology includes how to interact with individuals and groups, and how groups interact with each other. Social psychology can explain human behavior by using psychology theories. This course includes main theories and concepts of the mainstream social psychology. This course also analyzes how to apply social psychology knowledge to social lives, including interpersonal relationship development, communication and conflict etc.. This course also introduces culture perspective to explain human behavior.
Advanced Mathematics" is a preliminary but fundamental course for students from physics department etc. Calculus can be said the most important part of Advanced Mathematics. Besides Calculus, Advanced mathematics includes generally also Linear Algebra (mainly Matrix theory), Analytic Geometry, Differential Equation Theory, Integral Transformation and sometimes Probability Theory.
