  1. A Letter to the Parents

    September 13, 2014 by JI Webmaster

    亲爱的家长们, 我们欢迎您的孩子来到交大密西根学院(JI)。我对他们的优秀学术成绩表示祝贺。我们很高兴你们全家将加入密院的大家庭! 交大密西根学院是两所著名大学密切合作的成果。所有教师的录用标准与密西根大学等美国知名大学相同。学生将接受美国顶尖大学的教育。学院旨在培养未来的创新领导者,帮助学生实现他们的学术潜力,人格发展,培养专业技能,领导力,并致力于社会贡献。为了实现这一目标,我们需要你们的支持,因为你们最了解自己的孩子也是他们信赖的朋友。 当你们的孩子适应个人责任的更高期望时,请帮助他们培养独立性和自我管理的意识。帮助他们适应大学的要求,并能够独立生活。大学与中学最大的区别是,我们将把他们作为成年人,并期望他们表现为成年人。我们相信他们能够管理自己的时间并会对自己负责。 他们大多在你们的精心呵护下长大,可能缺乏自我管理的经验。然而,现在是让他们理解和履行其责任和义务的时候。请在这个关键转变期帮助他们,这意味着提供他们比过去更少的帮助。我们希望你们能提高对他们负责和独立的期望。这些都是他们生活和未来的重要技能,他们在交大密西根学院的几年将是他们锻炼这些技能的时光。 根据我们的经验,如果孩子们无法适应进入大学后的变化,许多人可能遇到很多问题。即使他们在小学和中学很优异,这也可能发生。为了更好地适应大学生活,以下项目非常重要: a)时间管理。这是大学生活的关键。教学和学习方式与高中显著不同。讲课时间少得多(每星期约16至20小时),但我们希望学生花费课时的2-3倍以上在于掌握知识和完成作业。我们也鼓励学生积极参加各种课外活动,这对他们的群育发展和获取职业成功所需的非工程技能非常重要。要平衡所有这些要求,时间管理是必要的。 b)心理调适。交大密西根学院的学生在高中时都是出色的,尤其是他们的学习成绩。但是在第一学期,有些学生由于其不同的背景可能面临困难。我们希望每个学生都能应付新的挑战和永不放弃。我们希望他们有信心和有​​毅力去克服任何困难。在他们独立生活,面临许多新的学术和社交状况时,我们也希望家长能帮助他们建立他们所需要的信心。 C)学习方式。密院学生的最大优势是,他们很用功,想为自己解决问题,这是他们以前一直成功地做到的。但是,这可能会妨碍他们充分利用教师和助教为他们解答的宝贵资源。既然您为了交大密西根学院的教育和为您的孩子创造机会的能力而选择了它,就应利用其资源来实现这一目标。我们希望你能提醒你的孩子,当他们遇到学术问题时他们应该找教师和助教帮助。 最后,我们希望你尽可能加入交大密西根学院的大家庭。我们真诚期待您的合作与支持。我们建立了家长会,所有的父母都是会员。家长会提供许多重要的功能,经由它我们可以收集您的意见,让你表达你的想法。我们藉由家长会向你汇报学院动态和学生进步的成果。我们也希望你与家长会合作,以帮助我们继续建设世界一流的研究机构,达到它潜在的更大历史性成就。我们需要你参与招生,推广学院,和筹款。 如果你想成为家长会的主席团成员,请联系艳春杨博士(yeung_1981@sjtu.edu.cn)。我们将于9月14日举行第一次新生家长会,选出了家长会的新主席团成员。 再次感谢您选择了交大密西根学院。让我们共同创建学院的荣耀,使你的孩子和所有的学生知道,他们享有中国最好的学术经验并将永远以密院人为荣!   黄佩森 教授和院长   Dear Parents, We welcome
