The 2018 Training Workshop for Seed Teachers for Marine Careers Exploration Teaching Comes to Life
The “2018 Training Workshop for Seed Teachers for Marine Careers Exploration Teaching,” organized by the Taiwan Marine Education Center, was held in the environmental protection classroom on the third floor of mengcyuan first food court of the National Taiwan Ocean University on May 17. Students including teachers, principals and important cadres of related units came from different parts of Taiwan, with a total of 23 schools, 6 units and 42 students joining the event.
In the opening address, President Chang Ching-Fong of the National Taiwan Ocean University said, “It is a pleasure to see the long-term effort of the Taiwan Marine Education Center in publicizing marine careers. Through this one-day workshop, it introduces the various aspects of the marine industries while the seed teachers off the stage are playing an important role in guiding students in looking for direction in their life, and encouraging them to integrate their interest with what they learn so that they in turn will contribute to society.” Director Chang Cheng-Chieh of the Taiwan Marine Education Center remarked, “The Center has entered its second year in its research and development of courses on marine careers. In this activity, we hope to invite fellow teachers from across the province to jointly publicize marine careers. Once this workshop ends, we will immediately open 30 roving talks, and schools from all over the country are welcome to apply online.”
The objective of the courses focuses on the promotion of the marine food processing industry. The topics include: “Introduction to the Courses on the Exploration and Development of Marine Careers” by Hsu Chi-Che, Director of the Office of Student Affairs, Keelung Municipal Jian De Junior High School ; “Work Environment of Marine Food Industries and Workplace Development” by Chen Kuan-Cheng, Manager of the Quality Assurance Department of Yens; “Taiwan’s Marine Industries and Culture” by Kuo Zhao-Wei, Secretary-general of the Taiwan Association for Marine Environmental Education; and “The Gap between the Cognition and Reality regarding Marine Workers” by President Huang Tsung-Shun.
