Abstract: The Chinese system of education is shifting from an examination orientation to a more creative approach in order to increase educational quality. The new curriculum in China requires not only changes in content and form, but also sets higher expectations for teachers' instructional strategies and abilities of using educational technology. As a result, China has started and implemented the “One Teacher, One Class” (OTOC) activity to improve teachers' professional development. In this paper, our discussion revolves around the theme of OTOC, including its origin, progression, process, and effect. To end, we summarize the expectations and prospects for OTOC in the Chinese educational context.
