Finally, Mu Rongping (vice Dean of SPPM), summarized that as a newly-established school, the most important issue now is curriculum system construction which needs to take into considerations our original development scheme, regulations and development vision. Then, we should compile textbooks and teaching materials from our class and better them to good quality. Finally, during our teaching process, we should frequently consider how to improve our teaching performance and explore personalized teaching methods.
