「財團法人高等教育國際合作基金會」於5月26日至30日與國內22所公私立大專院校聯合參加於美國加州聖地牙哥Convention Center舉辦之第66屆美洲教育者年會(NAFSA, Association of International educators)。今年度會議之主題為「Pathways to Global Competence」,預估將有包括來自美洲、歐洲、亞洲、非洲等全球各地約9,000位從事高等教育國際合作之學校或機構代表參加。此次年會中臺灣以”Study in Taiwan”設置教育展攤位參展,期能吸引國際教育者,提昇臺灣高等教育之國際知名度,並進一步發展高等教育國際化之合作契機。

臺灣院校參與美洲教育者年會已行之有年,今年在教育部與主辦單位「財團法人高等教育國際合作基金會」共同帶領下,計有國內22所公私立大專院校,包括教育部駐美代表處教育組劉組長慶仁、駐洛杉磯教育組梁組長琍玲、高等教育國際合作基金會陳惠美執行長、明道大學汪總校長大永及多所院校之國際長等40多位代表參與年會及教育展,臺灣攤位並將於5月28日下午2時30分舉辦Happy Hour造勢活動。

美洲高等教育機構與臺灣之交流近五年學位生、交換生與華語生的平均成長率約為5%,102學年度共約有之5,157人。其中,學位生來臺就學者除學習華語外,多以「商業及管理」、「工程」、「人文」為主要修讀領域。也因此,臺灣院校在今年的年會,主打商管、工程及社會科學等雙聯及雙學位課程、姐妹校締結、交換學生、華語及短期學分課程,期以「充足獎學金、高品質教育、多元文化、友善環境」等優勢,吸引更多優秀外籍學生來臺就學及強化與美洲高教機構之合作。

5月29日傍晚則將由駐洛杉磯經濟文化辦事處令狐處長榮達,假聖地牙哥當地口碑受肯定的Harbor House宴請所有臺灣參展校代表及當地學者教授。相信透過餐會將加深雙方之瞭解,提升未來更多臺美學術交流及合作機會。

The Foundation for International Cooperation in Higher Education of Taiwan (FICHET) and 22 higher education institutions are participating in the 66th NAFSA, Association of International educators at the Convention Center, San Diego, CA, USA from May 26th to 30th. The theme for this year’s conference is “Pathways to Global Competence”. By drawing together different cultures, nationalities, and professions within higher education, NAFSA has developed a platform for creating dynamic partnerships within higher education. We believe that the “Study in Taiwan” pavilion will increase the international visibility of Taiwan’s higher education and the opportunity of international cooperation.

In the past years, FICHET has been leading Taiwan’s higher education institutions to participate in the NAFSA conference. This year, under the coordination of Ministry of Education and FICHET, there are over 40 representatives from 22 higher education institutes attending the conference, and most of the representatives are the deans of international affairs. In addition to the meetings with foreign educators, Taiwan booth will also hold the “Happy Hour” activity during the conference, giving away exquisite gifts offered by universities of Taiwan.

The collaboration and interactions between higher education institutions in the United States and Taiwan have been increasingly active. The average growth rate of Mandarin learning students, degree students and exchange students from the US is around 5% in the past five years. The student number in 2013 is 5,157. In addition to Mandarin learning, the major subject fields for degree students are Business and Management, Engineering and Humanities. Therefore, in this year’s NAFSA, Taiwan’s higher education institutions offer joint/dual degree courses, high-level partnership establishment opportunities, exchange programs in teaching/research staffs and students, Mandarin Chinese programs and short-term programs with the advantage of “affordable scholarship, quality education, culture diversity and friendly environment” to attract more excellent international students to study in Taiwan and strengthen the cooperation with higher education institutions in the US.

To increase the interactions and collaboration opportunities between the representatives of Taiwan and local scholars, a dinner banquet is held at Harbor House on May 29th by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles. The event offers perfect opportunities for universities of Taiwan to discuss collaboration opportunities with their partner universities.
