In this paper, the PAD (presentation, assimilation, discussion) teaching method was applied in the courses of "green chemistry" and "material chemistry" for postgraduates and perfect teaching effect was achieved. In this teaching reform, it was found that topic selection is very important for the effective discussion. This paper analyzes by examples and discusses in detail the various factors impacting the teaching effect in the "discussion" process. The application of PAD teaching method in postgraduates' courses is helpful for developing critical thinking and independent scientific research ability, and is also beneficial to the postgraduates' research and development in the future.

Key words: Critical thinking, PAD, Postgraduates teaching, Chemistry teaching
