For the first time, National Chiao Tung University cooperated with AdvacedHE from the UK to launch the “International Certificate of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education”training. NCTU is the first, and so far the only university in Taiwan to become an Advance HE Access Partner, and it is now the 50th international partner.
Recently, the Ministry of Education has actively promoted higher education programs and encouraged top universities to accumulate international competitive energy. Therefore, in order to fulfill the purpose, NCTU worked with Advance HE to introduce the International Certificate for Learning & Teaching in Higher Education program for current in-service faculties and doctoral students who are interested in teaching in the future.
This cross-border cooperation is not only the first to introduce international higher education certification and training resources, but also hopes to enhance the higher teaching strength of doctoral talents, creating a world-class local doctoral researchers. The first training section ceremony was held on September 10th. Training includes learning theory and practice, teaching professionalism and teaching professional value, interactive teaching, learning assessment, reflection and reflection exercises. A total of 25 participants were benefited from the training, and more than a dozen of them were current teachers.
NCTU also invited Professor Chang Wen-Shao from Sheffield University, UK, to come to Taiwan for support and guidance during the training period. The participants felt very much appreciated and rewarded for the accompanying and encouragement of Professor Chang.
Participants expressed that this course not only enhances English listening and speaking ability, but also learns many methods and theories that can be applied to practical teaching. Doctoral students said that the course is quite useful and will apply the knowledge learned into teaching.
