Construction of National High-Quality Courses for LIS in China
ABSTRACT
The paper first introduces the background of Martin Trow’s theory of how to develop mass higher education and then brings up the necessity of Chinese course teaching reform. It introduces the current situation of the construction of the National High-quality Courses (NHCs) in China. And taking the practice of Wuhan University’s library and information science (LIS) course teaching as an example, the paper also discusses the implementation of this project, focusing on two aspects: a new system of LIS course teaching and network platform construction. The paper concludes by recommending that, for successful LIS NHCs, it is necessary to transform our educational ideology, strengthen our innovation, and set up a more beneficial teaching environment for innovation cultivation.
