Abstract:

The research-oriented course lectured in English is a valuable teaching method aimed at training professionals with high innovation abilities. As a subjected course for undergraduates majored in materials chemistry, the research-oriented course, organic materials chemistry has been taught in English for years. In order to know the English level and demands of students and our teaching effects, we design two questionnaires for the survey used at the beginning and at the end of the course, respectively. The analysis of the survey shows that the students have good English level and have desires to study the course in English. Moreover, the students are highly satisfied with our teaching effect, such as the teaching materials, English teaching, teaching contents, course syllabus, and teaching methods. The result of the survey suggests that not only the research-oriented lectures in English is feasible, but also the teaching effects is good.

Key words: Organic materials chemistry, Teaching solely in English, Research-oriented teaching, Questionnaire survey, Teaching effect
