An Extraordianrry Mandaring Chinese Teaching Experience at The University of Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.
The Ministry of Education has offered a Chinese-language teacher program through a partnership with the University of Scranton since 2010. Ms. Wang, Hsiang-Ling, who received two Masters degrees in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language has been a representative of this program, and has been working as the visiting lecturer of Chinese at the Department of World Languages and Cultures (WLC) in the University of Scranton since 2019.
The WLC Department gathers visiting language lecturers from all over the world. Ms. Wang believes that openess, high emotional intelligence, and cross-cultural communication are keys to the success of language teaching. Applying the Salad Bowl Theory is the ideal way to foster highly effective teamwork and to respect and integrate different identities and cultures. Nurting a sense of independence is also important.
Chinese Classes at college level in the University of Scranton are different from those in Taiwan. In the university, teacher-student relationship is more like friends, however it is still crucial for teacher’s to maintain their authority. Having small talks with students can increase students’ learning motivation. While designing a Chinese lesson plan, a student-center approach must be considered. However, one of the difficulties while teaching Chinese in the class is how to apply authentic Chinese cultural knowledges in to real-life scenarios.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Scranton has switched its model to remote learing in 2020. Luckily, there are a great variety of resources such as ACTFL, Chinese Language Teachers Association, and STARTALK programs. Despite this challenging outbreak, Ms. Wang was able to receive one pedagogy grant from ACTFL-SIG and joined more than ten teaching development training sessions which were very beneficial to teaching Chinese remotely in 2020.
Ms. Wang is very thankful for the support from the Education Division of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York. The world-renowned Chinese-language program sponsored by the Ministry of Education has enhanced Ms. Wangs’ linguistically-diverse environment. The experience allows Ms. Wang to explore technology-based methodologies of how to facilitate Chinese language teaching effectively. Ms. Wang considers she is very fortunate to receive awards that have played an important role in shaping her profession and these experiences also motivate her to further contribute to Chinese language teaching in the future.

The academic year of Fu Jen consists of two semesters. The first semester (fall term) begins in September and runs till January; the second semester (spring term) begins in February and ends in June.
Taiwan's Ministry of Education (MOE) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the University of Pittsburgh to establish a new Taiwan Studies program at the university. The MOU was signed by the Education Division of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in New York and the Asian Studies Center (ASC) at the University of Pittsburgh. The program, titled Centering Taiwan in Global Asia, will be led by the ASC over the next three years.
The Taiwan Studies program is aimed at examining Taiwan's crucial role in the globalization of modern Asia from historical, cultural, political, economic and socio-developmental perspectives. Since Taiwan’s own development has been shaped by diverse historical and cultural influences, it can be viewed as a microcosm of the forces driving the development of modern Asia. Through the Taiwan Studies program, the ASC plans to host new courses, lectures, seminars, and screenings of Taiwanese films to encourage greater discourse about Taiwan.
The first such seminar was held at the University of Pittsburgh on Oct. 2, with a lecture by history professor Dr. Evan Dawley on the topic “Becoming Taiwanese: Religion, Ethnogenesis, and Colonialism in Twentieth-Century Taiwan.” In his lecture, Dr. Dawley analyzed the formation of a distinct Taiwanese identity, and how this process was influenced by traditional religious practices and the various colonial nations who were present throughout Taiwan’s history. Although the seminar was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was well attended by students and faculty from the university and culminated in a lively Q&A session.
The Asian Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh was founded in 1969, and has since pioneered the field of East Asian studies in the United States. Its founding faculty included many renowned scholars, including Drs. Hsu Cho-yun, C.K. Yang, and Thomas Rawski. The center has been designated as a Title VI National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education to promote the global affairs and foreign language education.
The ASC has planned three major initiatives for its Taiwan Studies program. First, the school will offer two new courses in Taiwan Studies, one of which will be a general education class for undergraduates covering the history of migration to Taiwan, and the other being a specialized course on Taiwan’s history from the 16th century onwards. The second initiative involves incorporating Taiwan Studies into the University of Pittsburgh’s community engagement programs. Specifically, the ASC plans to leverage its existing K-12 teacher training programs by incorporating more Taiwan-related topics into the curriculum. The final component of the program is to host seminars, lectures, and film screenings on topics ranging from Taiwan’s economic development, immigration patterns, to religious practices.
To celebrate the Republic of China (Taiwan)'s National Day on October 10, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) hosted a celebration at our office in New York on October 8. Local officials, academics, and community leaders were invited to attend the festivities. Due to social distancing requirements for safeguarding public health, only 20 guests attended the ceremony in person, while the rest of the invited guests participated online through a live stream.
The Education Division at TECO was proud to invite Dr. S. David Wu, President of Baruch College, and Columbia University student Gavin Ko, who serves as Vice President of the Federation of Taiwanese Student Associations in New York (FTSANY), to attend the ceremony in person. Taiwanese students studying at universities in the New York tri-state region were invited to participate in the ceremony online.
The 2020 Global Youth Trends Webinar held by the Youth Development Administration (YDA), Ministry of Education, is now open for registration!
The YDA organizes the Global Youth Trends Forum every year. Despite the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global exchange of ideas continues. The forum has been adapted to an online discussion and will be a prelude of the next year’s event. Two webinars will be held on Nov. 13th and Nov. 27th. The theme is “Global Partnership”, which is the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 17, with a focus on “Living together in a time of pandemic and digital technology.” Youth from all over the world are invited to share their experiences about promoting disease prevention and discuss about how they can combat the pandemic together to create a better life for the new normal.
The first webinar will be held on Nov. 13th. The host will be Audrey Tang, digital minister of Taiwan, who will share Taiwan’s pandemic prevention experience.
Three leading international panelists have also been invited to share their experiences. Taiwan was the first country to resume its baseball league, and managed to control the pandemic without suspending schools after the COVID-19 outbreak. At the same time, Taiwan has supported other countries by providing face masks, developed a pandemic information platform, and promoted digital technology to prevent the spread of COVID-19. By sharing success stories, the webinar will be an opportunity for youth around the globe to think about how to collaborate to implement pandemic prevention measures during the coronavirus crisis.
The second webinar will be held on Nov. 27th. Representatives of global youth organizations, including the European Youth Forum, World Youth Alliance and One Young World, have been invited to participate. Moreover, during the webinar, participants will together discuss and vote for the subtopics of next year’s Global Youth Trends Forum. The YDA will collect their opinions and organize them into specific issues.
These two webinars will be livestreamed on Nov. 13th 1:00-2:00 pm and Nov. 27th 4:00-5:00 pm Taiwan time (UTC+8). Register on the official website (http://2020gytf.kahap.com) now, and you will have chance to interact with professionals from around the world.
