The Teaching Resources Center: The Application of Practical Teaching Methods for Lifelong Learning
Chien, Chiying
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v4 n12A p180-185 2016
The Teaching Resources Center (TRC) was developed at the university as an integrated project funded by the Ministry of Education. The focus of the TRC is not only on enhancing students' motivation in self-access study and written English, but also on providing the resources for research and information to develop lifelong learners and independent researchers. The teaching and learning goals were realized by the project's three sub-programs: (1) several workshops and a symposium were held on the methodology of providing and using resources in teaching research; (2) the Adaptive Instruction Program was assisted by outside reading; (3) a Teaching Resources Center was established to integrate resources to enhance an environment for practicing written English. Data was collected using qualitative and quantitative methods and used to analyze the effectiveness of implementation. Generally, it was shown that teachers want to take part in quantitative, practical, hands-on research in the hope of understanding specific examples. Similarly, many teachers are positive about outside reading and online written evaluations, whereas students' attitudes need further encouragement and support from teachers to implement future lifelong learning.
