  Most of the contemporary college students are only children. They grow up under the care of their parents. From the beginning of primary school, they focus on the mental work of learning and reading, and lack the quality of physical work and independent life. College students often can't wash their clothes, fold their quilts, and organize their internal affairs. Some students even deviate from the values of physical labor, which affects their own development.

  Therefore, since 2014, the school has set up labor course and included it in the compulsory course, which is included in the teaching plan and talent training program as a compulsory course for youth. At the same time, the starting point of labor education is to cultivate, develop and perfect people, not only for labor.

  Under the guidance of the party's educational policy, the labor course of He university is guided by Xi Jinping's new socialist ideology with China's characteristics. It responds positively to the call of the party and the state, reconstructs the integration and creates a new classroom for labor education and teaching.

  Using "heart" to make students change their ideas

 At the beginning of the labor course in 2014, the school labor education encountered different degrees of difficulties and resistance. Students and parents do not understand, do not support, do not cooperate, labor class is the most urgent problem.In the eyes of the students, Professor He Wei, the founder who has always been kind and responsive, made a clear statement on this matter: we must have a labor class, and we must have a good labor class, which is valuable, meaningful and effective!

  How do students change their ideas from not understanding labor class to "one post is hard to find" in public welfare labor class?


  Professor He Wei proposed that there is a "preface" before the labor class. In the "preface", I will tell the students why we should work. He, together with the party and government leaders, teachers and counselors, took the initiative to go to the students and explained the value and significance of setting up labor class one by one. Instead of setting up labor class for labor, he hoped that the students could be down-to-earth, learn and respect labor! At the same time, the school developed a curriculum, assessment methods and self compiled teaching materials, hired full-time teachers“ "Let every student participate in labor" has become one of the focuses of education reform in He university.


  After understanding the deep meaning behind the labor class, the concept of students has changed. It is the parents who really realize the changes of students.

  Some parents reported to counselors that in the past, children would go back to their rooms after eating at home, never wash the dishes to do housework, and even not wash their clothes and socks. They even brought back the clothes they had saved for a month for their parents to wash... After labor class, children knew how to do housework at home, and some even offered to help their parents wash their clothes, I didn't expect that the labor class in school changed our children! "

  The result of labor class is directly reflected in the practice and employment. According to feedback from many employers and schools, he's students have strong hands-on ability and are quick to adapt to work. They can not only do dirty work and bear hardships, but also know how to be grateful and respect others.

Having the courage to take responsibility, strong practical ability, and knowing how to be awed and grateful have become the biggest gains of the labor class for He's students.

 Cultivate various abilities in labor and strengthen the concept of labor education 

  Over the years, the school has actively carried out practical training, professional services and social practice in combination with disciplines and majors, enhanced students' labor awareness, accumulated professional experience, improved their employment and entrepreneurship ability, and established a correct outlook on employment.

Through labor training, students have the spirit of struggle to work in hard areas and industries, and understand the profound truth that empty talk can harm the country and do solid work to prosper the country.

  "As a freshman, I have finished my volunteer work class. In fact, labor class is not boring in imagination, we can learn a lot from it. For example, the task of my labor class is to be on duty in the dormitory. At the beginning, I also thought that this duty was boring and could not learn new knowledge. But after I cooperated with the management committee to check the dormitory, I knew that the labor class could enhance my sense of responsibility and responsibility; When I saw the cleaning students how to solve the problem of water pipe leakage, I knew the importance of teamwork... In the labor class, I learned unspeakable knowledge, which needs our heart to feel the harvest. "—— 2020 student Yang Zhenfei
