Talent training is the main responsibility of colleges and universities. Teaching and education accepted at the undergraduate stage is crucial to the cultivation of innovative talents. Experimental teaching is one of the important links to improve the innovative ability of undergraduates in scientific research and to cultivate practical personnel. This paper systematically introduces how to apply the four-step teaching pedagogy based on "supporting-pulling-leading-releasing" to the multi-level analytical chemistry experiment course teaching so as to train students' comprehensive experimental skills at discovering, analyzing and solving problems step by step, and thus cultivating students' innovative perception and ability. The final goal of teaching knowledge and skills as well as training innovative research quality is achieved.
