ABSTRACT

Objective: To construct a WeChat supported PBL teaching mode, apply it in the lecturing on Basic Chemistry forHigher Medical Education, and explore its teaching effect. Methods: We selected the international students enrolled in 2014 and 2015 as teaching objects, who were divided at random into the control group and experimental group, with the students in experimental group taught in the WeChat supported PBL teaching mode, and those in control group in the traditional mode. Upon the completion of teaching, the students’ learning experience in the new teaching mode was investigated, and their final results in Basic Chemistry for HigherMedical Education were compared. Results: The students in experimental group were satisfied with their learning experience in the new teaching mode and learning effect therefrom; their final scores of Basic Chemistry forHigher Medical Education were also higher than those of the students in the control group. Conclusion: WeChat supported PBL teaching mode, with its emphasis on the in-depth integration between information technology and curriculum, helps improve students’ interest and initiatives in independent learning, promote timely communication between teachers and students, and improve the comprehensive ability of international students, which is worthy of optimization and promotion in teaching.
