Abstract

In order to help graduate students improve their research abilities more quickly, especially literature research ability, this research attempts to apply the Journal Club teaching method to the practice of graduate teaching and study its effectiveness. There are 30 academic master's students majoring in biology at the 2022 level of Jiangxi Science & Technology Normal University as the research object. The Journal Club teaching method in the "Frontiers of Life Sciences" course was implemented, and the graduate students' understanding and recognition of Journal Club were investigated through a survey questionnaire. The results indicated that graduate students had less understanding of Journal Club activities, but after the activities, their English expression ability has improved and their understanding of the latest scientific research progress has deepened. The study also found that after the Journal Club activity, graduate students clearly realized that a reporting time of 5-10 min was more appropriate, and the literature in their own research field was more conducive to scientific research.
