External Supervisor

I am privileged to serve as an External Supervisor for projects focused on climate change education within the realm of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL).







Combining AI-automated chat coding analysis and multimodal learning analytics to develop evidence-based and literacy-oriented climate change courses in the CSCL environment

In alignment with global long-term development goals, this project seeks to advance evidence-oriented climate change education to nurture talents capable of navigating a highly digitalized and climate-affected future society. The research specifically focuses on public engagement in decision-making and discussions about climate issues within the digital society, aiming to enhance the public's ability to evaluate and make informed decisions regarding climate change data and information. These topics are integral to UNESCO's (OECD) PISA multinational scientific literacy assessment and the European Union's 'Horizon Europe' framework plan, reflecting the importance of such literacy in today's digital society.

Through strategic international collaboration, we endeavor to develop innovative digital courses, learning frameworks, and assessment tools tailored for climate change education. Leveraging cutting-edge methodologies such as learning analytics and artificial intelligence, we aim to pioneer novel educational paradigms. Furthermore, we aspire to forge strategic alliances between institutions in Taiwan and the Netherlands, with the intention of actively engaging in the European Union's prestigious "Horizon Europe" initiative. By doing so, we seek to broaden our horizons in international research endeavors and bolster the global standing of climate change education.

Keywords: Climate change education, digital society, learning analytics, artificial intelligence in education.

From Sep. 1, 2023, to Aug. 31, 2025.

Volunteer Courses: Health and nutrition community volunteers

This initiative, funded by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan, encompasses a Health and Nutrition Community Volunteer Program. Its primary objective is to furnish volunteers with comprehensive knowledge in health and nutrition, thereby empowering them to serve as invaluable assets within their respective communities. The curriculum is designed to address key areas including dietary guidance, promotion of healthy lifestyles, imparting nutrition knowledge, and cultivating effective health management skills. Upon completion of the training, volunteers are equipped to offer tailored support and disseminate pertinent information, particularly targeting the elderly demographic within their communities. My role within this project entailed serving as a Teaching Assistant, facilitating the delivery of course materials. This endeavor spanned from July 1, 2011, to January 31, 2012.
