Professors from Sweden and Taiwan discussed about education on information and computer engineering.
Five professors from Uppsala University including Prof. Anders Berglund and Prof. Mats Daniels were invited to the symposium. President Wu Cheng Chih, Chair Chen Ming Puu and other professors talked about the current situation and difference of science education in Taiwan and Sweden. We hope that through this symposium, more academic cooperation and exchange opportunities will be available.
Professors and graduate students gave presentations and lead discussions. A variety of topics were included in the seminar, for example, teaching for program design, game-based computational thinking, and education on Information security, education on culture and computer science.
Through exchanging ideas back and forth, both sides learned more about the situation and important topics of information education in Taiwan and Sweden in different aspects, new ideas for research and practice were evoked, and the future direction of information science education was discussed. After the symposium, both parties have reached agreement on resources, exchange programs and research on computer science.
