高教雙語政策-推動大專校院學生雙語化學習計畫

 Ref: https://www.edu.tw/News_Content.aspx?n=9E7AC85F1954DDA8&sms=169B8E91BB75571F&s=2BCAF7C42463717F

高教雙語政策-推動大專校院學生雙語化學習計畫

面對全球化與數位科技發展趨勢,國際溝通是我國新世代人才不可或缺的能力,也是國家重點產業邁向國際佈局的關鍵,教育部將於2021年9月啟動「大專校院學生雙語化學習計畫」,使學生不僅在專業知識站在國際前緣,並養成可以與國際專業人士溝通合作及全球移動的能力。本計畫將聚焦推動「重點培育」及「普及提升」兩大主軸,強化學生英語力、推動全英語課程(或稱EMI課程,English-Medium-Instruction Courses),整體提升高教國際競爭力。

 

教育部表示啟動「大專校院學生雙語化學習計畫」(以下簡稱雙語計畫)已有一定程度基礎,依據教育部與英國文化交流協會在2020-2021進行的調查發現,目前我國高三生約 21%達到「歐洲語言學習、教學、評量共同參考架構」(CEFR)B2流利以上等級,亦即有五分之一的高三學生具有修習全英語課程的基本能力,而師資方面,則已有近七千名大學教師具全英語授課能力。

 

雙語計畫分就重點培育及普及提升兩項重要計畫策略,說明如下:

 

壹、重點培育計畫,將擇優挹注具國際競爭力之大專校院轉型為雙語標竿學校或專業領域學院轉型為雙語標竿學院,培養專業領域雙語專業人才,並作為國內各大專校院推行雙語教育之典範。雙語標竿學校2024年預計達3所, 2030年預計達6所,雙語標竿學院2024年預計達18個、2030年達30個,績效目標設定以學生表現為關鍵績效指標,包含提升學生英語能力及提升學生雙語專業能力,各校(院)至少達成以下目標:

 

(一) 2024年達到「25-20-20」:2024年時,標竿大學與標竿學院至少有25%的大二學生,其英文能力在聽說讀寫達到CEFR B2以上的流利精熟等級,同時全校至少有20%的大二學生與碩一學生,在其當年所修學分中的20%以上為全英語課程。

 

(二) 2030年達成「50-50-50」:2030年時,標竿大學與標竿學院中至少有50%的大二學生在聽說讀寫達到CEFR B2以上的流利精熟程度,同時至少有50%的大二學生與碩士學生其當年學分中的50%以上為全英語課程,並推動畢業證書EMI修課認證,以接軌國際及產業。

 

貳、普及提升計畫,目標在鼓勵各大專校院整體提升教師英語教學能力及學生英語能力,普及提升推動學校2024年預計20所、2030年40所,至少達成以下目標:

 

(一) 英語課採全英語教學:2024年至少20所大專校院英語課採全英授課比率達30%以上、2030年至少40所大專校院英語課採全英授課比率達80%以上;並逐步推動專業導向(ESP、EAP、EWP)之英語教學內涵,以逐步協助學生修習EMI課程。

 

(二) 鼓勵學生修讀EMI課程:2024年至少5%大二及碩一學生修習至少1門全英語授課課程、2030年至少10%大二及碩一學生,修習至少2門全英語授課課程。

 

此外,配套結合「擴增雙語人力」與「資源共享及校際合作」,2021年至2024年將投入25億元前瞻計畫經費,協助大專校院逐步優化高教雙語環境,強化EMI教學能量及促進學校攜手合作,讓全英語學習的校園文化擴散到全國各地,邁向雙語國家。

水泥基膠結材及其形成方法 CEMENT-BASED CEMENTITIOUS MATERIAL AND ITS FORMING METHOD

專利號 Patent No.: I768210

本案提供一種形成水泥基膠結材的方法,包含:將水泥漿體倒入模具中,施加電流於水泥漿體進行電滲反應,將電滲反應後的水泥漿體從模具中移置於水槽中進行養護,以得到具有功能性梯度的水泥基膠結材。本案亦提供一種以上述方法所形成之水泥基膠結材,所述水泥基膠結材之中間的抗壓強度小於兩端的抗壓強度。

The disclosure provides a method for forming a functionally graded cement-based cementitious material, including a mold, in which the cement paste is poured, electroosmotic reaction conducted on the cement paste, and transfer of the cement pastes into the water tank for curing to obtain a cement-based cementitious material with functionally graded properties. The disclosure also provides a cement-based cementitious material formed by the above method. The compressive strength in the middle of the cement-based cementitious material is smaller than those at both ends.

2022 ACI FRC Bowling Ball Competition

https://www.concrete.org/students/studentcompetitions/frcbowlingballcompetition.aspx

What is involved with this competition?

Generally, the teams follow the rules, meet the schedule, and compete at the convention. Teams design and construct bowling balls from a fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) mixture. The types of FRC mixtures permitted for the competition are defined in the competition Rules. Before the competition, teams have several schedule deadlines to meet for registration and other paperwork submittals, as well as design and construction of their bowling balls. This process typically starts 5 to 6 months before the convention competition. Teams must attend and meet the convention schedule to compete with two bowling balls—one for bowling and the other for destructive testing.

What is the objective of the competition?

The objective of this competition is to demonstrate the behavior of fiber reinforcement within concrete, to gain experience in forming and fabricating a fiber-reinforced concrete element, and to encourage creativity with compliance in engineering design and analysis.

Who can participate?

Students currently enrolled in a home school, high school, or an undergraduate college or university program are eligible to participate. Students from a qualifying school form a Team. A Team must Register on the ACI website to compete in the competition. Teams compete at the ACI Concrete Convention against themselves and other qualifying teams. ACI does not require but does encourage ACI chapters, schools, or locations to hold their own competitions to select teams for representation at this international competition.

When and where is the competition?

This competition is typically held every 2 years, and the next competition is scheduled for Sunday 27 March 2022, during the spring ACI Concrete Convention in Orlando, FL. Teams are encouraged to arrive at convention no later than Saturday so that they are prepared for the competition on Sunday.

What happens if the in-person convention is cancelled?

If the 2022 Spring convention becomes virtual, the competition will be postponed to the 2022 Fall convention, which would change the schedule and registration. If cancellation does occur, more details will be provided at that time.

How is the competition judged/scored?

There are two categories of prizes for this competition: Bowling Ball Design and Bowling Ball Analysis. Both prize categories require knowledge and experience about concrete, fiber reinforcement, material behavior, and bowling. For each category, scores are awarded in each of these following tests: specifications, mass, diameter, bowling, and toughness. Each of these test scores are combined and converted within each category to give each team a ranking.
