Teaching Profile


Promoting higher level teaching through seven concrete objectives assessing the quality of education:


1. Faculty

a. To speed up the improvement of faculty structure, we have hired more assistant professors (or above the degree) and practice-guidance teachers (a percentage of teachers with the degree of assistant professor or above, teachers with technical licenses or practical experiences and teachers who are studying further for their PhDs ,…).
b. To enhance the quality of teaching, research, counseling and service, we have established and put into effect a sound teacher-evaluation system (investigating past performance evaluation, research papers published, records of student counseling, and frequency between teaching roles for each potential employee)
c. To increase the number of research projects and strengthen the practical experience of teachers, we have established channels of interaction with industries (including programs of academic-industry cooperation and classes with extensive education and training).
d. To budget for each teacher’s further studies to enhance their knowledge base
e. To fund awards encouraging teachers to attend conferences and present papers
f. To order relevant periodicals and electronic books, providing teachers with current sources for their research (e-periodicals, e-books, e-resources)
g. To hold academic seminars and conferences on a consistent time schedule


2.  Curriculum and Class Selection

a. The curriculum is designed progressively and coherently for the consistency, integration and development of technological and vocational education.
b. Since students belong to different divisions, the curriculum is designed to be connected with each program. The courses in the two-year and five-year junior college are connected to those in the two-year institute; the courses in vocational high school are connected to those in the four-year university.
c. The curriculum is designed in accordance with the demands of employees in enterprises. Industry professionals and academic experts are invited to partake in the examination of our curriculum plan.
d. The curriculum enhances the training of foreign languages for students to cope with internationalization. In each department, English conversation and practical English are offered. In addition, bilingual signs are used on the campus.


3. Teaching

a. To promote effectiveness of teaching, each department budgets for hardware and software facilities to inspire real-world projects among students.
b. Practical teaching through field trips is emphasized. Students are led to enterprises as an extra-curriculum activity, including observational learning and cooperative education.
c. E-teaching with refresher courses are available for teachers, especially during summer or winter vacations.
d. Our teaching methods are lively and flexible to student needs. In addition, our curriculum stays current wit the time.
e. We pay attention to the progress of each student. At mid-term and the end of each semester, the network “teaching assessment” is carried out to provide a reference for teachers to improve teaching.
f. We budget for schoolwork counseling and encourage students to participate in license exams to acquire no less than one professional license before graduation.
g. Multi-level English courses are provided according to placement. Students are taught in accordance to their aptitude.


4.  Reinforcing Teaching and Tutorial

a. To provide early warning, absence notices are mailed to parents so that they are aware of their children’s attendance at school.
b. An early warning system for students with learning difficulties has been developed. For students who flunk during their mid-term exam (one-half or two-thirds of courses), their class counselors invite their parents to an appointment in which the problems and solutions are discussed,
c. In each department, tutorships are set up to teach less efficient students.
d. Handicapped students are tutored after classes to remain on par with their classmates.
e. Summer session and winter session programs are offered.
f. Reinforcement courses are offered for graduating students.


5.  E-portfolio

a. To establish a complete, computerized student records system.
b. To form a model of regulations for handling the student records.


6. Abundant Publications

a. “Beauty of Chienkuo”, a monthly calendar folio composed of pictures of CTU landscape architecture and activities, is published annually and distributed to relevant units and schools.
b. “Chienkuo Monthly” (32 pages) is an excellent print medium of communication, in which “President Mailbox” is much favored by students and faculty.
c. To annually host “Green-Hill Literary Award” for CTU students and alliances.
d. “Chienkuo Youth”, CTU periodical, concentrates on social “cares”. Sharing school resources with the community since 2003, it has focused on care toward humanities and art, ecology concerns, preservation of historical sites, community issues and care for disadvantaged groups.
e. To emphasize the importance of technology and virtue, annual “Chienkuo Journal” compiles its contributions based on the principles of being knowledgeable, professional and technologic. The articles should be examined by CTU committees and approved by experts outside of CTU.


7. To Form Strategic Alliances and Diversify Student Recruitments

a. To form strategic alliances between fifty vocational senior high schools in the middle area of Taiwan and maintain good relation, interaction and connection.
b. To show CTU culture and spirit and save design costs, the propagandas of student recruitments are designed in-house and manufactured by printing companies. 
c. To provide vocational high school students with plenty of information about future studies and life in CTU, we arrange school visits and orientations.
d. To further promote enrollment, we hold camp-team activities for the graduating students and help them plan future areas of interests. To allow faculty and staff to fully understand CTU features and use marketing skills, we invite marketing experts to give lectures about CTU propaganda for student recruitments
