Currently, there is a large gap between the classical courses of graduate and lab research activities, which gives graduates/supervisors an incorrect impression that classical course learning does not benefit their lab works too much. To bridge this gap and revise this underestimation on the values of classical courses, we proposed to train researching abilities during the teaching of classical courses through a variety of precisely designed immersion and interactive teaching/learning approaches such as group discussions, introduction of latest developments and applications of classical theories, understanding of paradigm in science developments, etc. We implemented the measurements in the colloids and Interface chemistry course and received excellent feedbacks from graduates as well as course-supervising groups of the university.

Key words: Graduate education, Cultivation of researching abilities, Colloids and interface chemistry
