People of WTBU cheer for the epidemic prevention and control work


WTBU cheers for Wuhan

       In early February, Ma Jie, one of the teachers of the School of Economics and Business Foreign Languages has begun to make preparations for the online teaching in accordance with the arrangements of WTBU's teaching affairs department. Nowadays,  her online courses have begun successfully. In order to ensure the effectiveness of online teaching, she collected learning materials and recorded course videos in advance, after the course began, she adjusted her classes in time based on students' feedback. In addition, she designed a fun questionnaire to enhance the fun of online teaching and uploaded the original English textbooks to make fully interact with students.

        At the same time, she recommended some online learning platforms for students to expand their learning. In order to guide students to take the initiative to learn, she publishs study instructions in advance and teaching summary after class every week.

        "Online teaching is more difficult to organize and manage than offline teaching, so it takes me more effort than before to try more methods of teaching reform, but I am willing to study and explore with students." Ma Jie said with confidence. "I remembered the beautiful scenery when I drive through Donghu and Yehu Lake to Huangjia Lake every early morning, and I always enter the classroom with my students' morning reading. When the bell rang, my students would say 'Good morning, Maggie!'. I hope everything can be as usual after the epidemic."

        In the first lesson of this semester, Mrs. Zhang Guifang has integrated relevant content of epidemic prevention and control into the curriculum and conducted guided teaching. After organizing teachers and students to watch a live broadcast of the “National College Students' Ideological and Political Course for the Prevention and Control of Illnesses”, she guided her students to discuss the topic through the cloud classroom in a timely manner and communicated with her students about the epidemic prevention and control.

        Zhang said that she hoped young students can strengthen the "four consciousness, four self-confidence, two maintenances"and strive to grow into a new era university student with ideals and responsibilities." They must keep in mind the great love in the world during the prevention and control of the epidemic and become the inheritor of love and volunteer service." Zhang said, "I stayed in Wuhan this year. After the epidemic, I want to go home to see my parents. I also want to take my children to the playground to have fun."

        In late February, Cai Jing became a volunteer for epidemic prevention and control and responsible for purchasing and distributing supplies for community residents. Since there are nearly a hundred retired old teachers living in the building which she responsibles for, they do not know how to operate online and some of them have inconvenient legs and difficult to carry heavy items to higher floors, Cai Jing helped them to register purchase information,  place orders on the mobile phones and move related materials one by one to the elderly. 

        She also became a psychological counselor by phone to chat with the old people to reassure them. Everyone kindly called her "Cai Yatou". 

        "My grandma will be celebrating her 95th birthday in April. I hope that the epidemic will be resolved at that time so that I can plan a happy and memorable birthday party for her! We have to accompany her a lot so that grandma can feel the love and care of the younger generation and enjoy her old age happily." Cai Jing said.

        In such a special period, although she can't go back to college for work, Sun Weiyue's work was busier and more nervous than before, especially for the mental health and safety of students. "Some students are stranded in Wuhan for various reasons, I will often talk with them to alleviate their internal anxiety. Students in the college graduation class should consult about employment issues, and some students should consult the issue of promotion to higher education, I'am always answering questions with patience." 

        Sun Weiyue believes that students are like their friends. Opening up and communicating with one's heart can get students' recognition and help students to go steady and far on the road of life. "After the epidemic, I really want to see my loved ones who haven't been together for a long time because my mother has been taking care of my sick grandmother in the hospital. I also want to go out for a spicy hot pot and go to the major attractions in Wuhan in the spring time."

(Virious activities that students did during the epidemic prevent and control period)

        Due to the impact of the epidemic, Wang Hao and other college students could only stay at home. In order not to delay learning, Wang Hao and his two friends formed a java squad, that is, a team of learning java technology. In order to ensure the learning effect, the teammates also set the rules: in the process of writing code on the computer, they should make study notes, write learning experiences and send the content of the study and screenshots to the WeChat group to check in every night. Those who punch in on time will be kicked out of the group.

      Under this agreement, the three teammates are learning consciously. Everyone get involved in the study and always have some lively discussions.

      "I want to go back to school to see my long-lost friends and eat a barbecue with them, because I haven’t eaten for a long time, I miss them very much, and then, by the way, show them the abdominal muscles I exercised during this long vacation." Wang Hao said.

      Tan Jintao returned to his hometown of Badong County, Enshi Prefecture during the winter vacation. During the period, he took the initiative to register with the community to become an epidemic prevention and control volunteer. He helped to maintain order, register in and out of vehicles and personnel, measure body temperature and discourage people from wearing masks. As one of the residents of my community, I'd like to do something as I can. In addition, I always keep in mind that I'm a Chinese Communist Party member, I must be brave and rush forward at this moment, this is the responsibility and our original intention of each party members."

       When talked about what to do after the epidemic, he said: "first, I want to find a barber to change a new hairstyle for me, then, after back to school, I will eat a bowl of fragrant hot dry noodles on the first floor of our college's second cafeteria. I also want to go to Wuhan Sakura Garden to see the cherry blossoms and feel the spring."

        Hu Jianhua is fifty years old now, but he seemed to be stunned and cheerful. During the epidemic prevention and control period, his main job is to guard the gates of the college. He starts to work at 7 o'clock in the morning every day. Before the work, he disinfect and take a temperature measurement for himself and colleagues, then he wear protective clothing and go to work at the gate to carefully check the personnel and vehicles entering the school and ensure the safety of school personnel.

        "The thing I can confirmed is that as long as the door is kept, the virus will be blocked and everyone's safety will be protected. Therefore, we have a heavy responsibility and cannot be sloppy." Hu Jianhua said seriously. "After the epidemic, I will continue to keep the door open for teachers and classmates and work happily.

        Alumni Zhang Yanhua is a native of Zhongxiang City. She is currently a member of the Shanghai Writers Association, an MBA alumni mentor of Tongji University, and a Hangzhou Youth Talent Ambassador. She currently lives in Hangzhou with her parents. During her New Year's holiday in her hometown, she learned that due to the impact of the epidemic, there may be a shortage of vegetables in Jingmen City. She launched an initiative in the elementary school students group and hoped to purchase the vegetables that can be picked in the town and donate them to the frontline medical staffs and patients so that they can have enough fresh vegetables all the time.

        Zhang Yanhua's idea got positive response from the students. Later, she and her classmates bought more than 20,000 kilograms of vegetables from farmers and sent them to Jingmen First People's Hospital and Zhongxiang People's Hospital in two trips. "After the epidemic, I will stay at home and write a new book."
