EMI Faculty Workshop

This past Wednesday, April 13, we had a workshop for faculty members about teaching English-Medium Instruction (EMI) courses at NYCU. There were two presentations: one by Chia-Feng Lu, Deputy Director of NYCU’s EMI Center, and one by Jonathon Hricko, Director of the Language Learning and Writing Center. We had some good discussion regarding the challenges of teaching EMI courses. Many thanks to all the faculty members who attended!

English Presentation Workshop

Last Thursday (4/7/2022), we all learned a lot from Professor Yann-Ru Ho about how to deliver an effective presentation in English. Many thanks to Yann-Ru for sharing her knowledge and expertise with us, and for giving students an opportunity to practice and develop their English presentation skills.

Personal Statements Workshop

Personal Statements Workshop

Have you thought about applying to study overseas, perhaps in a summer program or in a master’s or PhD program? If so, you may be asked to submit a personal statement (also known as a statement of purpose) as part of your application. A personal statement explains your research interests and future plans to the admissions committee of the program to which you are applying. Your personal statement will give the members of the admissions committee their first impression of who you are and what you have to offer. First impressions are important, and they can be good or bad. This workshop will introduce some strategies to use to give the committee members a good impression of you, and discuss some things to avoid doing so that you don’t give the committee members a bad impression.
