A New Opportunity for Interchange between Taiwan and Vietnam
To promote the perpetual development of the interchange of technological and
vocational education and develop substantial cooperation between Taiwan and
Vietnam, the Ministry of Education commissioned Chaoyang University of Technology
to hold “The Second Vietnam-Taiwan Conference on Vocational Education” on Dec. 2
and Dec. 3, 2007. The conference contained two parts: reports on special topics
and a conference. The attendees included the presidents from major universities in
Vietnam which focus primarily on the fields of Chinese-language instruction,
information, hospitality, and agriculture. Also attending, of course, were
presidents and related directors from technological and vocational institutes in
Taiwan. The discussion during the conference was aimed at three major issues:
“The procedures for recruiting foreign students and the development of the
international cooperation,”; “Industrial-academic cooperation and the integration
of enterprise resources”, and “The construction of the cooperation platform of
Chinese-language education”. During the conference,“the agreement of
educational cooperation between Taiwan and Vietnam” and “the collaboration
memorandum” were signed by parties from universities from both countries. Besides
that, a strategic alliance with thirty-one institutes in Vietnam, such as Hanoi
University of Management and Business, were also signed. The purpose was to
strengthen the opportunities for cooperation in technological and vocational
education, and to create a new milestone of Taiwan-Vietnam education.
Students Weeded for Jifong Community
In the early morning, a group of students at Chaoyang University of Technology
were busy weeding in the Jifong athletic field at Wufong. Students Association
launched a campaign of returning a favor to the community during the service week.
Since December 4, Students Association and the other 13 students clubs spent a week
on weeding for Jifong community, recycling, arranging free health check-ups and
evening parties. Ping-Hsuan Zhan, President of Students Association, indicated that
people thought the college students liked to party. Actually, the students at CYUT
are all good-hearted and love social service. Moreover, CYUT is located in Jifong
community at Wufong and the college students have the community service at heart.
The residents at Jifong were unable to enjoy their leisure time because the park
was overgrown with weeds; therefore, the students at CYUT decided to spend a week
removing weeds together for the community.
