The Course Reform of Mechanical Design Fundamentals to Cultivate Engineering Literacy and Innovation Ability


Mechanical Design Fundamentals
Course reform




In view of the shortcomings of traditional teaching in the Mechanical Design Fundamentals course, the teaching resources are integrated, the teaching content, teaching methods, and assessment methods are reformed, scientific research results are introduced into course teaching, and the task-driven teaching practice is applied. These measures have improved classroom activity, stimulated independent learning, and laid the foundation for the cultivation of students’ engineering literacy and innovative ability.
