NTNU and Penn State University announce collaborations for 2019

National Taiwan Normal University and Pennsylvania State University became sister school in 1998. The Collaboration Development Fund Request for Proposals started last year for strategic Partnership. After closely reviewed, seven projects were chosen for funding, in a variety of disciplines, from math education to geosciences to information sciences and technology. The seven awardees will start their cooperation with professors in Penn State university. They would be funded by the two schools for travel and business expenses. In late April, Vice President Frank Ying lead a group of administrators to Pennsylvania State University

Penn State and NTNU are noted for their study of education. Dean David H. Monk visited NTNU in 2011 and discussed about the visits and exchange. In 2013, the Institute for Research Excellence in Learning Sciences was established, focusing on areas of education and psychology. Since then, the two universities have held a Joint Workshop on Advanced Learning Sciences every year, with each year’s conference being held in a different location. In 2016, the benchmarking initiatives are opportunities to more academic research collaboration.
