Collaborative Innovation of Ideological and Political Education in Colleges and Universities Based on Philosophical Cognitive Thinking

Article excerpt

Effective approaches to ideological and political education research are the most important subject for college teachers (Lee, 2012). With the rapid development of the network information era, networks have become an indispensable part of our life, work and study. Networks have brought a colourful world to students together with certain negative impacts (Li, 2018). The new media is a form of media based on Internet, mobile communication and digital technology, which provides readers with information and related services via some common terminals. With the help of various devices and applications, the new media, due to its vast information flow, portable use and good human-computer interaction experience, has become the main form of information acquisition and communication among students in colleges and universities (Vandsburger, DuncanDaston, Akerson & Dillon, 2010; Garcia & Jager 2011). In this context, it has become a mainstream choice in many universities and colleges to conduct ideological and political education through the new media. The pattern of undergraduate political education in colleges and universities is shown in Figure 1.

With this trend, the ideological and political education in colleges and universities has undergone tremendous changes in terms of educational resources and teaching means, carriers and approaches. At present, the discussion on the innovation of ideological and political education in colleges and universities is mainly about how to explore and utilize philosophical cognitive thinking on the technical level and apply it to the ideological and political education.

The Influence of Philosophical Cognitive Thinking on the Function of College Ideological and Political Education

Philosophical cognitive thinking plays a multi-faceted role in ideological and political education. It is very important for us to recognize both its positive and negative aspects when it comes to ideological and political education (Ward, 2001). Figure 2 shows the core themes of cognitive philosophy - cognitive development, cognitive model and cognitive representation, which are divided and integrated from the dynamic, representation and simulation dimensions.

On the one hand, philosophical cognitive thinking is the new carrier of ideological and political education in colleges and universities. Its interactivity and equality as well as its efficient and compatible means of communication can enhance the communication between teachers and students, avoid one-way education, and gradually help form a multi-agent communication model. This can fully stimulate students' enthusiasm for learning and make them actively participate in relevant educational activities, so that ideological and political education can fully achieve its expected results (Xu & Xu, 2017). For example, it allows students to express personal opinions on major social issues during free discussions and to comment or debate on some hot topics. This can help students resonate with positive ideas and thus extend the results of ideological and political education. The cognitive development stage and its corresponding scores are shown in Table 1.

On the other hand, there are also differences in humanistic logic between ideological and political education and other methods. Specifically, some methods focus more on the economics of an enterprise, of which the purpose is to meet the needs of consumers and achieve optimal configuration. Humanistic education in colleges and universities mainly emphasizes the cultivation of students in value systems, ways of thinking and habits. Its essence is not to cater to, but to guide the students and respect their autonomies (Chen, Lu, & Liu,2018). In this regard, other methods inevitably conflict with ideological and political education. Therefore, how to play the advantages and reduce the disadvantages has become the focus of educators. Figure 3 is a 3D pattern of cognitive thinking. …
