“Journalists are aspiring and passionate.” As a teacher engaged in journalism teaching, Wang Weiming has his own unique insights on the “journalism ideal”. “My journalism ideal is to promote social progress and benefit the populace through news media, news dissemination - even my contribution is minor.”
As a “journalism teacher”, Wang Weiming not only has a wealth of media working experience but also is persistent in academic research and brave in exploration. In the teaching, Wang Weiming thinks that with the social development and progress of times, media teaching should advance together with times, reform and innovate to adapt to current changes.

Therefore, the teacher needs to teach them in accordance with their aptitude.” In the eyes of Wang Weiming, every student is a “work”.
