Lin hoped each participating team could keep in line with the national strategy for improving innovation in teaching. Teachers should earnestly follow these requirements, understand any of their deficiencies, and seek to learn from each other. Additionally, emphasis should be given to the integration ofideological and political education into their curriculum, in order promote a healthy morality that will create fresh and meaningful outcomes.

GZU is proud of its teachers who hold their passion for education and fulfill their duties without desire for fame or fortune. He stated that this teaching innovation contest helped GZU make progress towards its goals of developing itself based on undergraduate education, smart education, and the utilization of learning communities. Li said teaching should be the priority for college teachers and requested that the Faculty Development Office and Academic Affairs Office give their full support to faculty members. This would allow them to devote themselves to their teaching practice and research, so they can become the best possible instructor and mentor for their college students. From novice teachers to veteran educators, everyone should play an active role in forging a team of professional faculty that takes its duties seriously and maintains a sense of mission, good morals, extensive knowledge, and love for students.
