1. New Faculty Orientation

A three-day/two-night orientation for new faculty is held at NTU’s Xitou Experimental Forest in late August every year. The orientation helps new faculty members understand NTU’s administrative affairs and teaching/research resources, assisting them to adapt to the campus, build peer rapport, and strengthen their enthusiasm for teaching.

2. Faculty Development Group

As a continuation of the New Faculty Orientation, the Center for Teaching & Learning Development organizes an additional two-day/one-night training camp for middle-generation and experienced faculty members. By offering themed courses and interactive activities, the Faculty Development Camp effectively facilitates cross-disciplinary peer interactions, boosting the participants’ teaching competencies and career. While providing an opportunity for faculty members to intensively exchange their teaching, learning, and course developing experiences, this camp also helps them reexamine their own teaching/learning ideas and self-value, so as to create an innovative pedagogy and educational environment at NTU.

3. Faculty Empowerment Activities

To diversify and enhance our faculty’s teaching competencies, the Center for Teaching & Learning Development offers a series of empowerment activities during the semester that feature six topics: digital capacity, pedagogy, course design, learning evaluation, teacher-student relationship, and self-value. These activities assist instructors to consider and suit students’ learning motives and needs when designing curricula and instructing students. Besides, they also effectively integrate digital teaching and learning resources as well as information equipment for instructors to redefine and reexamine the role and attitude of an educator.

4. Teaching Practice Research

To improve teaching quality, learning outcomes, and fulfil the goal of providing high-quality higher education, the Center for Teaching & Learning Development assists faculty members who are interested in studying and improving their teaching methods to apply for and implement the Ministry of Education’s Teaching Practice Research Program. Besides organizing information sessions, workshops, lectures, and regular meetings, we also help host exchange activities for instructors to interact and share their findings and experiences after the program ends.

7. Faculty Mentorship

The Faculty Mentorship service provides new teachers the opportunity for in-depth discussions on topics such as teaching and research through one-on-one mentorship and experience exchange, through which new teachers can adapt to the new environment more quickly and learn the resources available at NTU. The Mentorship service also promotes friendship between new teachers through face-to-face interaction.

8. Faculty Development Group

The Faculty Development Group aims to create a support network among teachers through topic-based teacher groups to help NTU teachers explore personal growth as well as to promote cooperation and communication among teachers for creating a healthy work environment for faculty members.

9. Teaching Portfolio (tPo)

Teaching portfolio (tPo) serves as a platform for instructors to document and reflect on their teaching careers. tPo automatically imports an instructor’s basic information, teaching courses, and student evaluations. In addition, instructors can use tPo to post writings on their teaching philosophies, teaching plans, and reflections on teaching. These functions provide a foundation on which instructors can improve their teaching.

11. Summer College

The Summer College convened by NTU cooperates with its partner universities across Taiwan to integrate their general education courses and specializations, providing students in Taiwan with “a third semester” during summer when inter-collegiate general education courses are on offer by credit transfer. Teachers are free to choose where and when to give the lectures. The college hopes that by offering teachers a platform to give inter-collegiate and interdisciplinary lectures, students will have the opportunity to meet different teachers and experience diverse teaching styles as a way to arouse their passion for exploring related disciplines.
