Speaking of the difference between teaching and research, Pei explained that teaching requires greater sincerity and dedication but acknowledged that academic research can bring an immediate sense of achievement. Pei who is devoted to educating students, thinks that the university should address this discrepancy by giving more rewards to professors for teaching as it is not easy to make a course helpful and attractive.
