    (Evaluation on Service Programs)

    In the policies of Ministry of Interior in 2013, one of the focuses referred to the “network for helping the disadvantaged groups and well-founding social welfare” was boosted in order to enable Taiwan to become a nation caring cultures and humanities. CYCU is one of the partnership universities enrolled into the “Digital Learning Within Online Tutoring Service Plan” of Ministry of Education. For the time being, it provides the online course counseling service to six junior high schools and elementary schools in remote areas. The application for the Plan, Chien Chih-Feng, helped the online tutoring service plan and felt that the orphanage children also needed the course counseling and care. Therefore, Teacher Chien plans to implement the distance education online in the “Distance Education Theories and Practices” taught by him in the Graduate School of Education, CYCU at the 1st semester of 2016, and provides service to the children of Reindeer Private Children’s Home in Taoyuan County to achieve the purpose of online counseling, teaching and escort.

    The course integrates the MOOCs, flip education and synchronized distance education, which are the most popular in the education sector, to allow students to practice the course counseling on the site to teach the children of Reindeer Private Children's Home in a remote manner and, therefore, learn how to integrate technology into teaching and upgrade the teaching and technological application skills through provision of services.

    In order to upgrade the autonomy of community-entity, we will try the one-to-many education this semester to allow the orphanage children to learn cooperation, and to teach undereducated and undereducated but inspirable children with the high-level education. Given the increasing need for fellow university students, this will be an experimental opportunity and will build the foundation for future community development.
