Abstract

China is currently at a crucial juncture of transforming and upgrading its traditional manufacturing industry, which entails a strategic choice of actively adapting to and leading a new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation. Simultaneously, the labor market is confronted with new developments and challenges. Labor economics, as an integral component of disciplines such as economics and management, plays a significant role in nurturing talents. However, the current teaching of “labor economics” courses mostly adheres to traditional classroom lecture modes, facing issues such as lagging knowledge updates and applications, as well as a disconnect between theory and practice. To achieve the inheritance and innovation of “labor economics” course teaching in the new era, it is imperative to integrate theory with practice, accelerate interdisciplinary integration between “labor economics” courses and other disciplines, establish a systematic curriculum and case library for labor economics, improve teaching methods, and uphold the classics while innovating and advancing in the teaching process of labor economics.
