Life and art

Introduction -

National Taiwan University of Arts has fostered much art talent since its inception. However, teacher preparing in the past has been limited, and even talented people who have undertaken professional and orthodox art training have had difficulty in becoming teachers in high school and elementary schools. Our school applied for the High School Teacher Education Program and was allowed to open one class of teacher Education Program in 1996. Given an “Excellent” rating in a Ministry of Education evaluation of teacher education centers, our school was permitted to open two classes of the Elementary School Teacher Education Program in 2001, providing a more comprehensive service to art education.

Focus of the Center -

Aesthetics education is the focus of teacher development in the Teacher Education Center. The center strives to instill in students passion and patience, and all the qualities necessary to be teachers. The center encourages students to fulfill and advance themselves, as our students will in turn in do the same for their students.

The Center strongly emphasizes strategic cooperation with other units and organizations. For example, the center cooperates with the Graduate School of Arts and Humanities and Graduate School of Art-Culture Policy and Management to promote arts and humanities courses of the nine-year compulsory curriculum. The center cooperates with the museum to promote museum education, museum guidance training, and so on. The center assists nearby elementary schools to hold exhibitions, and during summer and winter vacations, the center also holds camp-like art events with elementary schools in remote areas. Our center has also been cooperating with Humanity Primary and Junior High School in Ilan County to develop experimental courses.

The Dance Department is also committed to helping the surrounding community in providing community service. For example, our department occasionally cooperates with The Lin Family Garden and the New Taipei City Government in various community-oriented events. We also occasionally perform in schools and make an annual graduation tour performance around Taiwan.

Education in the Center -

Courses are designed to be both “parallel” and “progressive.” The four main fields of study, basic education courses, teaching methodology courses, teaching internship courses, and basic teaching courses, are offered concurrently. However, the number of basic education courses decreases progressively, while the number of internship courses, and basic teaching courses increases progressively. In accordance with school policy regarding teacher development in the art field, our center encourages students taking the internship program to also take the Introduction to Special Education course to improve their knowledge about special education.
