This paper explored "the classroom debates" in "nutrition chemistry" course. After evaluating the students' expectation in participating activities, the participating degree and their gains from the activity, it was found that the performance and gains from the "classroom debate" were influenced by provincial locations, genders and majors. The results showed that "the classroom debates" need to coordinate the students' speculative thinking ability, creative thinking, team playing, medical ethics and professional education as a whole. This would help the students to form a way of critical thinking as well as the right outlook on life and value system.

Key words: General education, Classroom debates, Critical thinking, Capacity development
