Professor Shen thinks a good Chinese teacher should be equipped with enthusiasm and creativity in teaching and learning, passion to help students, cross-cultural awareness and appreciation, and familiarity with modern technologies. Confucius left a famous motto: “Conduct teaching according to the talent of students.” Professor Shen always tries to live up to that principle. He aspires to awaken in Trinity students a passion for learning, research, and analysis through pedagogical innovations. He has hitherto studied and taught in China, Singapore, and the United States. This educational and working background has prepared him with the awareness of and appreciation for cultural diversity to embrace all kinds of students.
