According to the document “No. 7 of Jiao Gao Ting Han ” issued by the office of Education Department a few days ago, our university’s life science experimental teaching center has been approved as "National Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center". This is another important achievement in undergraduate experimental teaching in our university
Life science experimental teaching center, established in 1987, has five co-constructing laboratories for comprehensive training and innovative research, nine laboratories for professional basic teaching, rare animals and plants museum, botanical garden, the comprehensive experimental field, and experimental animal center. The teaching center, adhering to the teaching philosophy of EMPHASIZING CLASSICS, STRESSING INNOVATION, AND HIGHLIGHTING INDIVIDUALITY, carries out hierarchical progressive training of BASIC SKILLS, COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT, PRACTICE AND INTERNSHIP, AND INNOVATIVE TRAINING to cultivate elite talents in life science with training of practice ability and creative thinking as the core. The center has already cultivated a large number of research and teaching talents with good foundation in biology and strong ability of experiment in life science for our country, especially for our province, and is a demonstration in Jiangsu Province, the Yangtze River Delta region and even the whole country. In 2007, this center was elected as JIANGSU PROVINCIAL EXPERIMENTAL TEACHING DEMONSTRATION CENTER. In 2011, it was elected as a COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING CENTER FOR TEACHERS' PROFESSIONAL SKILLS IN JIANGSU PROVINCE. In 2015, rare animals and plants museum affiliated to this center was approved as NATIONAL SCIENCE EDUCATION BASE (CONSTRUCTION UNIT). This time, life science experimental teaching center approved as NATIONAL EXPERIMENTAL TEACHING DEMONSTRATION CENTER will elevate life science experimental teaching level in our university to a new and higher level, promoting discipline construction and talent training of life science.
Currently, our school has two state-level experimental teaching demonstration centers, a national virtual simulation experimental teaching center and 18 provincial experimental teaching demonstration centers. The total number of national, provincial experimental teaching demonstration centers is ranking high among colleges and universities in Jiangsu Province.
