Abstract

Behaviorism teaching theory is a pedagogy method which derived from human’s exchange- behavior characteristics, such as opinion exchange, information transition and mutual interaction; it aims at the cultivation of student’s engineering teamwork consciousness and cooperative practice ability. The principle of mechanical drafting-statistic in plastic molding machine’s mechanical drafting-system is used as an example, behaviorism teaching theory is penetrated into the whole teaching process of mechanical drafting, thus example organization, pedagogy method and teaching content are investigated and improved.Practical experiment proves that the implementation of Behaviorism teaching theory entails a good teaching result; a new developing thought and effort direction are advanced for the practice of engineering education.
