Besides, they created their classes featuring integration, guidance and experience by applying a variety of innovative teaching activities, teaching methods and educational information technology means. Thus, an immersive classroom experience is provided to students with the use of situational simulation, role play, guided workshop and other forms, she added.

While Xia Baojun’s team concentrated on the students’ role in class, another special prize winner laid more emphasis on content building and methodological innovation. According to Liu Zhe, her team developed a real teaching and research situation for teacher training university students by taking advantage of information technology to act out "primary school students in university classes" and "university students in primary school classes" activities. They also established the U-G-S (university, government, school) double tutorial system, which offers students to connect with their off-campus mentors in real time regardless of distance.
