LYU Chuanyi, Secretary of the Party Committee of SDUT, briefly introduced the history and its present development of SDUT, and gave thanks to Jiangsu University for its support and help in this summer seminar. LYU Chuanyi pointed out that if SDUT would want to take advantage of the new round of reform and opening up in Shandong Province as a favorable opportunity to achieve new leaps on the original basis, SDUT must aim at learning from high-level universities such as Jiangsu University and carry out its targeted learning. He hoped that the trainees would listen carefully, study intelligently and discuss freely what they would be taught, and then catch up with them after returning to SDUT.
During the three-day training, the design of each class or lecture was very compact and the contents were very substantial. Furthermore, some school leaders, heads of functional departments and deans of colleges from Jiangsu University were invited to exchange their ideas in 8 special lectures which were related to deepening undergraduate education reform, scientific and technological innovation and social services, discipline construction and postgraduate education, deepening personnel institutional reform, internationalization exploration and practice, and the construction and development of independent colleges.
On the afternoon of July 27th, 2018, the participants were organized to participate in the field to visit the Research Center for Fluid Machinery Engineering Technology, Industrial Center and Wenxin Book House of Jiangsu University.
On the evening of July 29th,2018, the participants were divided into three groups, and they were invited to exchange with the heads of relevant functional departments and 10 responsible persons of the colleges. In the meantime, the School leaders of SDUT were divided and participated in each group discussion respectively. Each and everyone discussed and exchanged their thoughts around the two themes of how the functional departments change their functions and working methods for serving the college and how the college plays the dominant role of running a school.
