Looking back at the process of the preparation for the competition, Ms. Tian Yuanzi said, In just a few months, I had to assimilate the experience and opinions experts had imparted to me and make use of them, which was time and energy-consuming. But the past four months have improved my perspective and methods of thinking about and solving problems, and I have become mature. I believe that as long as I keep learning in a down-to-earth manner, I will become a better college teacher in the new era who can lead my students to a broader platform.
There are five groups in the competition: liberal arts, science, engineering, medicine and ideological and political courses. 162 contestants selected from more than 20,000 contestants from more than 1,000 universities participated in the finals.
