The Center for Language Education, in partnership with the SUSTech School of Medicine, recently held a Ceremony and Presentation for the Faculty Teaching Development Program. Throughout the evening, the hard work and dedication of the Medical School faculty was celebrated, with speeches and brief presentations.

Professor Xing Mingzhao, the Dean of the Medical School opened the evening with a speech highlighting the importance of this program and how it benefits everyone involved, from the doctors to the teachers to the students. Dr. Li Yuan, the Director of the Center for Language Education spoke to the importance of empowering teachers and students through constructive classroom teaching, and how we act as multipliers, affecting those who learn from our strong teaching practices. Dr. Zhang Wenyong, the Deputy Dean of the School of Medicine addressed the collaborative nature of the two departments, a partnership which has now spanned three years, and benefited not only the Medical School, but likewise, three SUSTech Affiliated Hospitals. Finally, Matthew Jellick, the instructor of the program, spoke about the objectives of the course, including everything from Syllabus Design to Being a Reflective Teacher, a cyclical endeavor which promotes continued growth on behalf of everyone involved.

Two doctors who took the course also gave inspired presentations, including Professor Dr. Qin Jianqiang and Associate Professor Dr. Du Changzheng. They both spoke about the benefits of the topics covered, and in turn, how they apply them to their classroom instruction, welcoming the challenges of being a constructive teacher who takes risks in how they approach teaching.
