Basics of Mechanical Engineering is a very important professional course. Its teaching quality directly affects the learning of subsequent courses, such as Mechanical Design Manufacturing and Automation. At present, the teaching quality of Basics of Mechanical Engineering in vocational colleges has been poor for a long time. In order to improve the teaching quality and students’ learning enthusiasm, this paper puts forward targeted suggestions based on the analysis of the problems in teaching. The views of scholars were first analyzed, we then analyzed the challenges faced by classroom teaching. Lastly, six targeted suggestions are given. The suggestions put forward in this study can act as teaching innovations in vocational colleges.
