Summary: Since the advent of the “internet + education” era, several factors, including the emergence of MOOCs, super large scale open online courses, and the rise of online tutors at home and abroad, have had an impact on teacher training in China. How to handle this situation and adapt the philosophy, programmes and methods of teacher training is an important topic that requires the urgent attention of teacher training institutions.

On July 25, 2016, the OUC Teacher Development Centre and the Experimental School successfully concluded their jointly held Active Learning for Tutors project.

With the rapid development of mobile communication technology and the increasingly maturity of mobile education, informal learning is drawing attention in international educational technology circles, and resource-based autonomous learning is becoming more and more important.

Education in China has long faced issues such as uneven resource allocation, an imbalanced investment and output ratio, and low quality education level.
