Teaching Excellence Project seeks to boost quality of university education
Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages enhanced students' language ability
Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages used the NT$70 million subsidy it received last year to build digital technology and industrial creativity centers and training facilities to strengthen their students' bilingual translating ability. The subsidy was also used to increase contact with international organizations and industrial circles, as a way to enable students develop a global view and business mindset.
Wenzao used part of the subsidy to organize lectures given by international scholars.
National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences (NKUAS) enhanced business-school cooperation
Thanks to the MOE subsidy, the National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences (NKUAS) reformed its curriculum. Kuo Tong-yi, dean of the academic affairs of the NKUAS, said that the old curriculum failed to enhance their students' practical business skills, making it difficult for them to find jobs.
NKUAS reviewed the curriculum of its 18 departments and designed new courses based on suggestions from private enterprises, government officials, and scholars. So far, seventeen departments have implemented new curriculums. The new NKUAS curriculum integrated education needed to enter the workplace and vocational skills. This was meant to avoid graduates needing to acquire additional skills after graduation.
