Chinese-language teaching program
In response to the growing popularity of Chinese-language study worldwide, the Center offers a Chinese-language teaching program to train University students interested in becoming Chinese teachers. The program is divided into three major areas: Fundamentals of Education and Teaching, Topics in Teaching, and Teaching Practice, Teaching Materials and Pedagogy. Students who have completed seven courses in these three areas for at least 14 credits are eligible to apply for a Certificate of Completion of the Chinese-Language Teaching Program.
To facilitate greater integration between National Hsinchu University of Education (NHCUE) and National Tsing Hua University, encourage collaboration and mutual support between instructors in the educational field at both institutions, and promote resource sharing among students at both, NHCUE’s College of Education and the Center for Teacher Education have jointly organized the “Program for Human Potential Development,” which is open to enrollment by students from both schools. This series of courses provide guidance to students in understanding the nature of intelligence and aptitude, helping them choose an appropriate approach for improving in areas in which they are weak in order to develop into well-rounded individuals who can compete successfully in today’s society. Representative courses in this program include Human Intelligences and Potential, Life Stories and Growth, Interpersonal Communication & Emotion Management, Development of Musical Intelligence, Development of Kinesthetic Intelligence, and Development of Mathematical and Scientific Intelligence.
