Office of Academic Affairs
Office of Academic Affairs operates based on the principle of “high quality academic services” to establish an interactive environment as well as a caring “Friendly Campus”, to promote the development of “teaching and learning” in order to reach the goal of teaching excellence. Its subsidiaries include “Admission Service Center,” “Curriculum Affairs and Registration,” “Student Learning Development Center,” “Teacher Learning Development Center,” and “Science and Humanities Education Development Center,” and their responsibilities are illustrated as follows:
Center for Outreach and Recruiting
In order to create multi-opportunities for school entrance and independent recruitment in alignment with our admission policies, we admit students with potentials, dedication to learning, and who can recognize principles of Chung Yuan Christian University. Also we set the goal of “standardizing admission process,” “electronizing admission affairs,” and “humanizing admission Service,” to deal with admission affairs of undergraduates and postgraduates based on concepts of fairness, openness and justice.
Curriculum and Registration Division
We have held education concepts of “realizing one’s potential is success,” and “love is the dominating power of education,” for improving education quality and student learning efficiency, in order to realize students’ potential while transferring to other departments; to promote double major, minor and interdisciplinary programs; to encourage students applying for duel bachelor-master degrees, as well as transfering from Master’s to Doctoral Program without Completing Master’s Requirements in order to be more efficient in studies; to extend summer course programs to improve extended graduation; to develop a concise process of academic affairs in order to create high-quality digital teaching and learning environment; to integrate student learning resources in order to improve the quality and quantity of e-teaching in order to materialize the goal of electronize information in all perspectives.
Center for Learning Enhancement
We lay the emphasis on two dimensions concerning students’ “learning improvement and assessment,” and “curriculum development and evaluation.” These two themes include outcome-oriented learning, learning strategies implementation, and students’ learning efficiency assessment and provide “adequacy” and “multichannel” in learning programs for students at various learning stages. Also, they are targeted at establishing multi-functional “student learning base” to create a specific environment for students’ independent learning so as to motivate them dedicated in learning and to develop their future development potential. In addition, they are meant to institutionalize curriculum standards, to realize reviews on indexes of students core abilities, to reinforce the connection between curriculum and core abilities, to master curriculum maps, and to integrate curriculum reconstructing so as to connect to practical needs in order to secure the mechanism of students’ learning efficiency.
Center for Teaching Excellence
Based on teachers’ development and needs, We look at two perspectives of “teacher professional development and assessment” and “teaching technology and digital materials”. We provide various development mechanism such as subsidies for teaching development, teaching improvement in domestic/foreign countries, multidisciplinary learning, learning community, collaborative teaching, teaching rewards, teaching in English, flexible salaries and so on as well as teaching assessment and counseling measures. We also build up a base specially for teacher professional development, and offer consulting rooms for teaching development as well as teachers’ professional development, and professional teaching studio, SNG video classroom, digital materials post-production rooms, workshops for teaching planning, and professional digital recording rooms. Now we also have i-learning teaching and learning platform, teaching excellence website, and to set up E-portfolio. And we are planning to establish teaching development website and CYCU TV channel.
Science and Humanities Education Development Center
CYCU cooperates with senior high schools to gain beneficial relations of “Quality High School, Quality University.” Currently we are working on four dimensions, “teacher development, student learning, campus service, and key features in colleges.” We mainly deal with activities related to working with high schools, MOE regional teaching and resource integration plan, regional student excellence plan, university marketing program and implementation, and University Expos.
In the future we will integrate our education principles as well as MOE policies and start with developing and carrying out students’ potential in the hope of molding talents in new generations with “characteristics, profession, creativity, international vision.” At the same time, our school can go on a sustainable way leading to the direction of “excellent sustainable mechanism, talent advantage, high employability, important higher-education university” and create sustainable values.
