◎觀光學子榮登卡蹓食神寶座
吳玉如.陳瑞斌╱馬祖.桃園報導
由連江縣政府主辦的「2007卡蹓馬祖食神大賽」,11/25於馬祖南竿火熱炒話題,歷經二個小時的奮戰,最終由本校觀光系陳秀香、徐清穎等人所組成的「型男美女大主廚」(如右圖),以獨特創意與精湛手藝,烹調出具代表性的馬祖美食,擊退其它參賽者榮登卡蹓食神寶座。
這項為促進國內青年對馬祖旅遊興趣所舉辦的食神料理大賽,共有來自本校、實踐、輔仁、中華及馬偕護專等五所大學參加,創意佳餚除了具備色、香、味、營養及衛生,還得兼顧馬祖特色。本校團隊用最簡單方式料理食材,並以戰地風情為五道菜色命名,分別創作出前菜,一道象徵戰爭時相聚分離的「分分合合」;用土雞和香菇料理的「海上桃花源」,則是馬祖別名;以及「戰爭魚和平」的清蒸黃魚、「熱血鰻延」的紅糟海鰻,最後則是蒜泥清蒸蝦菇的「龍虎精神」。在創意與美味兼顧的優勢下,型男美女大主廚們擄獲專業評審與現場觀眾的胃蕾。
此外,去年在台北國際牛肉麵節傳統組鍛羽而歸的心諮系校友鄭人宜(96年畢業),今年捲土重來挑戰創意組。鄭人宜以北方麵食貓耳朵代替傳統麵條,並將牛肉塊改成牛肉丸,以油炸及水煮兩種方式烹調,展現黃金色澤及獨特香味。這道「貓與牛的丸美相遇」,成功拿下創意組第三名,也成為本屆牛肉麵料理大師中,唯一的非專業主廚。

社論
學位等於知識?
兼論學習與知識的重要性
面對知識經濟時代來臨,高科技、知識及服務產業在產值及需求上,皆大幅成長。競爭力的來源就是「知識」,而大學是創造知識、培養人才的組織,自然要被期望成為知識獲得的來源,但弔詭的是學歷(位)無用的論點,卻不時地被提出,甚至有許多的年輕人相信。大學何以會落入這種社會氛圍中呢?
當大學錄取率在未來數年後將超過百分之百,甚至發生18分錄取大學的現象後,原先冀望透過讀大學,能幫忙找到好工作的目標,卻反而因為過多人的投入而成為就業的障礙。高度的期望,也產生高度的失望。年輕人若對於進入大學只抱定去獲得一張文憑,而非達成大學的教育目標:「培養具思考力與創造力的人才」,這會使得他們的知識水準停滯不前,代價就是容易被「洗腦」。因此學生被直銷公司迷惑的事件,也就不足為奇。試問:不需完成學業就能月入數十萬的工作,與只要18分就可能拿到文憑的大學學習,對於缺乏思考力的年輕人,答案也就再簡單不過了。
最近尼爾森全球消費者線上調查發現,台灣名列全球最相信廣告的第五名,台灣線上消費者最相信「消費者的建議」,比例高達91%。可以治療百病的能量水、排毒草,或以名人代言的神奇瘦身藥品等廣告,大肆的被播放及使用,顯示出這樣的產品販賣與廣告依舊是有效的。雖然廣告有其正面功能,但台灣人對生活常識的判斷與學習能力,卻是需要提升的。在美國教育界相信:接受過大學教育洗禮的學生,就能讀懂《紐約時報》、《科學人》、《經濟學人》等書報雜誌。若移至臺灣,相信大多數的大學生是無法達到這樣的標準的,因為是否能看懂的關鍵不在語文通曉的問題,而是知識不足的問題。因此大學生參與直銷而休學的問題,並非出在社會充滿許多的光怪離奇,而是因為缺乏判斷力與思考力,因而容易被洗腦及盲從。
高希均教授在其「八個觀念改善台灣」一書中,特別指出學習與知識的重要性,也勸戒國人過去常說的「愛拼才會贏」,是代表著草根性的「匹夫之勇」,但在知識經濟時代,則要提升為「學習才會贏」,以展現「知識之力」。這樣的力量已在高科技的科學園區內呈現,依數據顯示,在95年度新竹科學園區平均每位員工的產值已超過一千萬元。這對於僅「幻想」能以時間換取金錢的年輕人,應是一項衝擊吧!
要改善目前社會對大學教育的觀點,大學應以建立培養健康及高素質的國民為核心價值,如此,再多的大學亦不能言多;但若自我設限為「職業訓練所」,則目前的大學科系則是太多了!另一方面,學生則要思考為何要進入大學,要如何從大學畢業,而非去就讀「形式」的大學。多讀書、多思考、培養學習的習慣,自是獲得知識經濟時代競爭力的不二法門,如此學位與知識才能畫上等號。

專業開講
不丹 果然是樂國

商設系兼任副教授╱梁丹丰
我從小就喜歡簡單又豐富的生活,所以三十多年前就想去不丹!
想看看這遺世獨立的山國民族,該擁有現代失樂園的人們夢寐難求的那種遠離紛擾、祥和安樂的文化特質!我終於去到!在七十二歲之齡,畫旅八十國三十餘載後,這僻懸世界地圖一角的「迷你」區塊,果然以今之古貌,落落大方相迎,有些旅客感覺自己是倒入時光隧道,我卻為隧道彼端珍貴的遺風大喜過望。
「在這裡,我們都很快樂,因為,我們都很富有!」穿著源出我們唐宋古裝的不丹國服,喜孜孜地開著一輛陳舊老爺車,約莫四十出頭的車主用它當計程車,他自信滿滿,笑容燦爛,語調姿態,透著相當程度的得意。
我有些喫驚!但他引以為傲的註釋更使我呆住:「我們有寬廣的天空,有足夠的日照,高聳的山屏,堅實的大地,有工作做,有住屋和家庭,所以,我們不丹人都很快樂!」
這補充說明如此簡潔有力,定義如此清晰明確,聽入現代靈智渾沌的價值觀裡,無異一記震撼人心的當頭棒喝!
二十多年前在北美大峽谷底,老牛破車般的我無力跨越科羅拉多激流,只好喘著粗氣趴在地面寫生,有位年輕的行者趕過我時曾為我打氣,不料畫未及半他已轉了回來!當我訝異地追問他是否已走到谷底中心的營地?為什麼這麼快就急著離開?……他也訝異地反問我:「那當然啦!既已抵達,喝些水坐一下,不向回程又何待?!」
他困惑地搖搖頭,丟下這一句話就走遠了。“What’s more?”(你到底還想怎樣?)我一時楞住!卻終身難忘!
即至因緣遇合來到這容顏素朴、心靈華美的小小不丹,耳聞目睹,盡是無所多求的知足和感恩,沒有逾分的物慾,不受名利的驅策,人們自主、自在、自逸地過日子斯土斯民,沒有誰想多要什麼。在最清新的空氣中成長,在最純淨的泥土上生息,盡享自然農作的甜美,在至真至善至誠的人性中滋育。眼中是美,心中是情,胸中有愛,聽牧群應鳴之聲,樂淙淙流水之歌。在山間深呼吸,就野谿一掬飲,攬山嵐以徜徉。浥朝露以自得,汲四時運的智慧,領大塊文章之哲思,日出日落,而作而息;帶一袋壓扁的飯乾以上路,穿一串營養的酪塊於胸前,風中來雨中去,行驕陽奔夜月…。生命中最重要的應有盡有,賦性善良,宅心仁厚的不丹人,夫復何求?
當現代人有腳不肯用,無車不能行,原味不下嚥,雙手難作為……。與天地相容相契的不丹生活,不分冬夏,就在荒山野嶺健行,在縱谷絕壁攀越,練就一身鐵骨鋼筋的能耐,挑戰體適能的極限。平日粗茶淡飯,竟是現代人又愛又恨的健康飲食……。疾病自是難以上身,全國的免費醫護只好備守了。
此外,定期城鄉輪調的優質師資,也使義務教育的資源無遠弗屆,想就學求知增慧,可栽培到國外進修;願留守山林務農作工,也得到不分彼此的尊重。尚有勤政愛民用心極勤的明君,下有忠厚善良、誠篤務實的子民……。西方理想世界的烏托邦,陶淵明筆下的世外桃源……。不就應該是這樣?
在這不用機心的樂土工作多天,與心境光明、身在福中知福惜福的不丹人坦然相處,平日必須息以為常的防衛之心竟被一層層撕破,剝落殆盡後反璞歸真,我忽然感覺自己像個人,也逐步還原做了一個真正的人!
際此全球仍以經濟成果論斷貧與富,不丹民眾精神富足的心靈成就,也格外可貴地提供現世驚艷的反證!
有人認為,唯有兩者合一,才是人生應該追求的幸福!如若難以兼具必選其一,我會哈哈大笑學不丹人,仍然繼續快樂地做我「最窮的富人」!回到台北感觸至深,若有所得也若有所失!回顧此行遇合的上緣,逆緣,在在別饒深意。不丹民風的淳樸、忠厚、善良如此令人感動也心疼。相對於少數外人不知珍愛、尊重的遺憾,一切一切,反而為這美麗的桃源世界加成滿分!
此次我的不丹之旅得以完成,要感謝不丹皇后的鼓勵,不丹青年發展基金會(YDF)顏蒂的邀請支持,不丹民眾無私無我的分享,以及方琲和她的不丹友人及時的協助!

Preface-A Paradise Indeed!
Since I was child﹐I have longed for a simple yet enriched life﹒I sought for a kingdom embraced by mountains﹐the Shangri-La with a peaceful and joyful atmosphere﹐a paradise devoid of troubles and tensions﹒It seemed to be a world that only existed in dream﹒As time went by﹐my dream finally came true while I turned 72 after having visited more than eighty countries﹒
Nestled in a corner of the world﹐Bhutan welcomes people with its ancient look﹒Its sincerity﹐warmth and friendly atmosphere are irresistible﹒That is absolutely an enchanting surprise!
‘Here in this country we are all happy﹐because we are rich!’ Clad in traditional Bhutanese clothes﹐which are very similar to the ancient Chinese costume﹐a taxi driver joyfully drove his old car and said to me with a confident smile﹐“We have the clear sky﹐enough sunshine﹐breath-taking mountains﹐and sustaining earth﹒We have jobs﹐house﹐and families﹒Certainly﹐we Bhutanese are happy﹒”
The driver’s remarks﹐terse yet powerful﹐were like a flash of lightning! It reminded me of an episode of 20 years age﹐while I was trying to cross over the Colorado River in Grand Canyon﹒I was so exhausted and sat next to my painting﹒A young man walked by and encouraged me to go on﹒Before I finished my work﹐I was amazed to see him return﹐“Why were you in such a hurry? Did you arrive at the camp site in the valley? ”Puzzled by my query﹐“Of course! I did reach my destination﹐took a rest﹐and had some water﹒What else did I wait for? ”Shaking his head﹐he walked away and murmured﹐“What’s more?”
Yes﹐he was right! What else would one pursue?
Eventually﹐I had a chance to visit Bhutan﹒I observed its simple but enriching lifestyle and its people﹐who always appeared contented and grateful﹒They seemed unlikely to fall prey to desire or greed ﹐and thus always were free vanity﹒The Bhutanese enjoy a relaxing and self-assured life﹒They live in the freshest air﹐ work on the purest earth﹐and enjoy the most wholesome harvests﹒As almost everyone aspires to honesty and the perfection of morality﹐it is not surprising that they are cultivated toward its pristine﹐natural state﹒
What can the see but beauty?
What can they feel but loving kindness?
On this blessed land﹐one hears the sounds of sheep﹐cows﹐and birds﹐as well as the melody of little brooks﹒One breathes the air among forest﹐drinks from streams or the morning dews﹐and lives in a harmony with the seasonal turning﹒When one understands the messages of nature and feels its inspirations﹐all other civilized discourses may seem contrived and simply unnecessary﹒
Modern people tend not to walk﹐nor move without a cat﹐neither eat food without artificial flavors﹒The Bhutanese know how to live in accord and are satisfied with nature﹒When the sun rises﹐they start to work﹐and rest at dusk﹒A sample meal with dried rice and cheese would be sufficient﹒Be it summer or winter﹐they walk through valleys﹐climb desolate mountains﹐and overcome chasms and cliffs﹐constantly challenging the limit of physical strength﹐and become as strong as iron﹒No wonder free medical services and hospital are available but rarely used﹒
Free education is provided and learning is encouraged﹒Teachers are rotated regularly to ensure an equal for all﹒For a higher education abroad﹐a financial support is granted﹒Other staying amid the forest and working on farms are also respected﹒His Majesty rules the kingdom with love﹐wisdom﹐kindness and responsibility﹐while his people are honest and contented in return﹒Isn’t this a Utopian people longing for? It is indeed a paradise for Bhutanese!
In Bhutan﹐I was used to staying with people of open minds﹐kind hearts and mutual trust﹒I could also keep my heart wide open﹒I felt my whole being was“restored”to its long-forgotten﹐primordial pure state﹒
While many experts in the world tend to judge a nation by its economic development﹐Bhutan becomes a precious role model that challenges general value on wealth and happiness﹒Although most Bhutanese live in simplicity﹐they are endowed with a spiritual Wealth﹒
Some people may think that true happiness comes when one possesses both spiritual and material ampleness﹒What if﹐however﹐one cannot have both? I would prefer the way of living!
Back to Taipei﹐I can still recall the warmth﹐sincerity﹐and generosity of the Bhutanese﹒I could not help feeling sad as I saw some visitors to the kingdom failed to respect it and took advantage of the kindness of its people who never harbor any negative thoughts but are patient﹐candid and tender-hearted﹒This is a priceless pure land that deserves our utmost appreciation﹒
I would like to thank Her Majesty the Queen of Bhutan for her encouragement to undertake this publication﹒This project would not be possible without Yandey and YDF(Youth Development Fund)﹐as well as their invitation and support﹐the timely help of Fong-Pei Chen﹐my daughter-in-law﹐and her Bhutanese friends﹐and also the generosity of the Bhutanese who shared their wonderland with me﹒I am very grateful for the encouragement of the editors from San Min Book Co., Ltd﹒Lastly﹐I am Obliged to Cherrie Corey﹐Ming-Chien﹐my daughter﹐and Fong-Pei for their assistance with the English translation﹒
I dedicate this book to a future appreciation and respect for the distinguished qualities of Bhutan﹒May whoever resonates with Bhutan’s integrity and purity also savor its unbeatable natural beauty as well as the invisible power of its noble spirit﹒

課程綱要則是描述課程內容的主題與重點,界定了課程內容的範疇。最後,課程目標與系核心能力的對應關係,則有助於學生掌握所學與系核心能力之間的關聯性。

課程實施與評量

撰寫教學策略與評量方式,是教學生涯中最具挑戰與樂趣的兩件工作。在追求課程卓越的過程中,這兩件事也帶有某種程度上的研究樂趣。在課程大綱的引領下,教師可以藉著嘗試不同的教學策略,並透過適當的評量方式以測得教學的成效,作為下年度改善的參考。如果有多位教授相同課程的教師一同來探討並交換相關經驗,相信對提升整體課程的教學成效也會有相當大的助益。以資工系為例,在設計評量項目時,教師可以思考其評量方式,成績比重,以及對映的核心能力比重,這將有助於引導學生的學習,以及換算相關核心能力的教學成效。

教學歷程檔

建立教師個人的教學歷程檔案除了可供教學評鑑參考之外,更有助於教師累積個人的教學能量。以資工系為例,教師可以收集上課日誌、作業紀錄表、考題紀錄表以及其他與學生互動的資料(如線上討論室、部落格、BBS、每週問答集等)。格式不拘,簡單扼要的上課日誌扮演了備忘錄功能,可以供師生參考,對於教師撰寫課程自評有非常大的幫助。

教學自評報告

藉由撰寫教學自評報告,教師可以反思一年來的教學心得並作為未來改善的參考。因應教師評鑑時代的來臨,教學自評報告將會扮演積極且重要的角色。以資工系為例,教師可根據學習評量結果,評定班級各項相關核心能力指標分數,藉此以發現問題並訂定未來改善計畫。具體而言,教師可以進行下列教學反思與建議:1.請檢視本課程的教學目標,您認為是否有哪一個目標需要修正?要如何修正?2.您認為哪一個課程教學目標最難達成?原因為何?是因為欠缺某些先修課程應具備的知識或技能嗎?3.請說明在本學期課程中您在教學上所做的改變,以及所觀察到的結果。您認為本學期該課程的教學成效如何?是否有成效顯著或效果不彰的情形?您將如何追求教學精進或改善教學?4.其它補充說明。

結語

做好課程的品管不僅是對學生負責的表現,同時對教師本身課程的管理與持續改善,教學成就感的提升,也都有相當正面的效應。期望每一位教師同仁都能體認這樣的理念,並且從自身的課程開始一步一步做起。如此,我相信,每一位銘傳的教師都會是最卓越,也是最快樂的教師。

International Language Assessment Scholars Convene at MCU

Standards for Language Learning is the theme of a seminar being hosted by Ming Chuan University December 3-5.
Scholars and policy makers from Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Hong Kong-China, Indonesia, Korea, New Zealand, Peru, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, USA and Vietnam will be presenting research and case studies at the “Seminar on Standards for English and Other Foreign Languages in APEC Economies” during Tuesday and Wednesday’s program.
Sponsored by the Ministries of Education in Chile and Chinese Taipei, with additional funding from APEC, this research-oriented seminar is being hosted by MCU in the Sun Yat Sen Auditorium on the Taipei Campus.
The program features keynote research presentations by Dr. Angel Lin of The City University of Hong Kong, Dr. David Ingram of the University of Melbourne, Dr. Gary Buck of the University of Michigan, and Dr. Mark Moulton of Educational Data Systems.
Case studies on setting language standards and teacher accreditation will be presented by representatives of Chile, Indonesia, Korea, New Zealand, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
On the first afternoon of the seminar, participants will be treated to an educational tour, observing language programs and facilities at Wu-Ling Senior High School in Taoyuan County and MCU.
A Welcome Banquet starts off the event, being hosted at the Ambassador Hotel by Dr. Chin-sheng Chang, Director General of the Bureau of International Cultural and Educational Relations at the Ministry of Education. Later on Wednesday evening, December 5, all seminar participants will be treated to a Farewell Banquet at the Grand Formosa Regent.
The seminar is a special feature of a project that Chile and Chinese Taipei are co-leading under the auspices of the Education Network (EDNET) in Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). The project, APEC Learning Standards for English and Other Foreign Languages, is a primary vehicle for cooperating governments to carry forward the strategic direction of APEC Ministers of Education, as set at their last meeting in 2004.
Results from the project will form the basis of setting new direction and strategies at the 2008 APEC Education Ministerial Meeting, to be held in Peru.
In addition to the keynote research and case study presentations, a background research paper has also been prepared for the seminar by Dr. Howard Chen and Dr. Shin-Ying Huang of National Taiwan Normal University, and Dr. Paul Sinclair and Ms. LeAnn Eyerman of Ming Chuan University. This paper comprises an overview of frameworks and instruments used for language assessment, including English and other foreign languages. The paper also includes an analysis of results from a survey conducted among APEC economies over the past four months, covering current policies and practices in regard to foreign language curriculum, standards, assessment, teacher training and licensing.

Shaking It Up at the Coke-drinking Competition
by Eva Wai
The fun began as students flocked to the indoor basketball court, eager to enter the Coke competition. This year’s competition was held on November 2 at noon. Students from various majors formed groups to participate in the exciting event. Officials and organizers were busy getting everyone into lines and preparing the stands.
A small dance performance, performed by the organizers themselves welcomed the students and brought a buzz to the atmosphere.
Organizer, Daniel Ambrose Lee, Sophomore HIM, said the preparation for this event took place two to three weeks prior to the competition and a lot had to be organized as it had to coincide with the same event being held on Taipei Campus.
“I am surprised by the amount of people who are taking part today; I didn’t expect there would be so many entries,” said Lee.
The annual event, which is held at Ming Chuan on both campuses, is always popular among the students. This year’s entries tallied up to 300 or so students.
Prizes were given out to the top three winning teams. Third place received six cans of coke and a voucher book valued at NT$100. Second place received 12 cans of coke and a book voucher valued at NT$300. First place received 24 cans of coke and a book voucher valued at NT$500, sponsored by Ming Chuan University and Coca-cola.
“I am very excited to be here, and I’m having a lot of fun; at the moment my team is making good time at 1 minute, 36 seconds.” said Klim Chen, Sophomore Tourism.
Klim added that he enjoys drinking Coke everyday, and that he hasn’t had enough Coke, but his team is finished for the day. He also noted that no one will beat his team.
Apart from the Coke drinking competition, there was also another activity which required teams of six to shake it up. They had one minute to shake, releasing all the energy they had, while being timed with a counter timer strapped to their ankles. The winning team won with 836 shakes, and each member received a Coca-cola backpack from the Coca-cola Company.
“I am happy that I took part, because it was very exciting. Next year I will definitely take part again. Even if I lose, I had a lot of fun drinking Coke,” said Zach Chu, freshman, ICIM.
Klim and his team members shouted out in victory, as the organizer announced this year’s winner for the Coke-drinking competition. Klim said he is proud and happy his team won.
Free Mandarin for IC students
by Kenton Chance
International College freshmen in Taipei this semester are receiving free Mandarin lessons, compliments of the Mandarin Studies and Cultural Center (MSCC).
The classes are the result of a request by El Salvadoran Mass Communication and Journalism student Mercedes Menjiva.
“Since I am going to be here in Taiwan for four years, I thought it was a good idea for international students to start learning (Chinese),” Menjiva told MCU weekly. Menjiva had first expressed her desire to learn Chinese to Class Advisor Huei-Ling Wu.
Wu accompanied her to the MSCC to communicate the student’s request. Wu explained that the MSCC’s timetable and that of the students did not match, but after further planning, it was agreed that a class would be offered this semester on Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Selena Lin of the MSCC told MCWeekly that 20 students registered for the classes, which are initially being offered for one semester. Continuation will depend on students’ attendance, which she said has been fluctuating from week to week.
“Some people enroll, but because they don’t have to pay anything, they do not go to class,” Lin said.
Ms. Justina Fan, whom Wu described as “quite experienced already,” is teaching the Chinese course.
Fan, who also teaches Mandarin at National Taiwan Normal University, said the students will get lessons in pronunciation, speaking, dialogue, grammar and reading. She has been using 70% English to teach the course and will increase the amount of Mandarin used as the course progresses.
While she said that the students’ progress depends to a large extent on the teacher, Fan described her students as “very good, excellent, very smart.” She said the lessons will not be limited to the classroom, since she will accompany the students to restaurants and other places where they can practice the Mandarin they will learn.
Menjiva said that the classes were progressing well. And while at the time of the interview, the class was learning Mandarin phonetics, she said that her priority was to become “fluent in conversation and everything” and will focus on learning to read and write later.
Yasmin Tjondropurnomo is an International Business student of Chinese descent, born and raised in Indonesia. She can speak “just a little” Chinese and wants to improve her skills with her “ancestral language”.
“I want to speak really good Chinese so that I can build my communication with my family in China again,” she said. She said that she hoped, with time, to improve her Mandarin proficiency to the point that it can be an asset in improving her job prospects.
30 People ; 31Legs
Translated by Kenton Chance
The Department of Physical Education is organizing the annual Ming Chuan 31-Legged Race championship in an effort to promote cooporation and team spirit among students.
Participants in the event will have one of his or her legs tied to that of his or her teammate so that they run with three “legs”.
All students, regardless of department or level can participate as a class, club or other team representative.
Students can register with instructor Chou Li-qing at the Physical Education Office on the Taipei Campus or teacher Luo Wang-chi at the Taoyuan Campus Physical Education Office. Registration ends on December 19.
The registration sheet has two copies, one of which the participant must retain, and the other to be handed in to the Physical Education Office.
The competitions take place on the Taipei and Taoyuan campuses on December 21 at 12 noon on the outside track and field pitch. However, in case of rain, they will move to the gym in the F Building in Taipei and the 3rd floor of the gym in Taoyuan.
Students can register in teams of 32–16 males and 16 females–or teams of 22–11 males and 11 females. However, an individual can only be a member of one team. Anyone who breaks this rule will be banned from further competition and male participants cannot be substituted for females.
The actual event will see 30 persons–15 male and 15 female–form a line and run 40 meters (30m if held inside) and teams of 20–10 male and 10 female–line up and run the same distance.
Students interested in these events may obtain more information from the Physical Education Office on.

Foreigners Sample Taiwan’s Food
by Brnice Matthew
A large crowd of students, international and local alike, gathered at the Caesar Park Hotel in Taipei to participate in the first ever “Taiwan Fine Food Tasting Campaign”, organized by Corporate Synergy Development Center.
Among the invited guests, were foreign students from three top universities in Taiwan, such as Ming Chuan, Taiwan, and Taiwan Normal Universities.
All foreign participants were given the opportunity to taste all the Taiwanese foods (buffet style) and vote for the top ten delicious dishes. The dishes were divided into two categories: Snacks and Table Set Menu.
“I liked it,” said Kananji Msaka, a sophomore student majoring in International Business at the International College of Ming Chuan University. “But I thought it would have been creative food rather than foods you can find at the Night Markets.”
He said his favourite table set menu was the Buddah’s Delight, because it wasn’t like most Taiwanese soup. It was thick with flavor and an unusual taste.
‘It was pretty good,” said Toku who is Japanese and host of the Travel and Living Channel. “I met a lot of foreigners and journalists, which was a great experience.”
As a snack, Stinky Tofu was his favourite and Steamed Grouper was his top choice for Table Set Menu.
‘Oyster Omelet’ was voted first place for the snack category, while ‘Pearl Milk’ Tea came in second. As for the Table Set Menu, ‘Scrambled Egg with Dried Radish’ got first place, followed by ‘Sauteed Chicken Cubes with Dried Chili’ (Kung Pao chicken) and ‘Sauteed spring onion beef,’ which tied for second place.
Mass Comm Gets Hands-on
by Kenton Chance
Mass Communication and Journalism freshmen are being exposed to practical elements of the media, having visited three media houses in as many weeks.
The students visited Daai TV on October 26 as part of their Visual Communications course in a tour organized and conducted by MCU lecturer and Daai TV employee Victor Liu.
They received lessons on the production of television, radio and Internet content, and observed the filming of a television program. Other students had an opportunity to record Internet radio interviews with their classmates.
The following Friday, November 2, saw the students visiting ETTV for a brief tour that included a visit to the News Department. This was one of two tours organized by Journalism and Mass Comm Program Director, Walter Wang and Class Advisor Huei-Ling Wu, both of whom also accompanied the students.
The class visited China Times on November 9, where Public Relations and Marketing Manager Lisa Ying announced that www.chinatimes.com will “in the near future” invite MCU to be one of six schools to join the National Cheng Chi University and the Fu Jen Catholic University whose students generate information for the website’s “Student Channel”.
“We want our students to know not only something from the books but also something in the real world, especially our journalism students,” Director Wang told MCU Weekly. “They have to go to the media organizations and see how they are running the media,” he added, describing the trips as helpful and educational.
Wang further said that MCU’s newspaper, radio station and television station were also opportunities for students to get an early understanding of the media.
Meanwhile, Taiwanese student Emily Huang said the visit gave her an idea of the range of job options in the media, as she is considering a career in Public Relations.
“I think everything was special for me because it was the first time I went to see this place, and I now know what they are doing and how they function. I think it was a good opportunity to go there,” Huang said after the trip to China Times.
St. Kitts/Nevis student Kervin Lloyd described the trips as “… an effort to expose us as Mass Comm students to some outside education other than just the theory and whatever other practical we do inside the classroom…. to expose us to some in-the-field experience in the production of news, the production of television programs…”
Class Advisor Wu said that the School of Communication organized the visits because it thought it they would be useful for the students’ future learning.
“If necessary or useful for all of you, we will try to organize other trips; not only this kind but probably others as well,” she said.

@商設藝廊–王淇郎展
商設系很榮幸邀請到大嬸婆文化協會理事長王淇郎老師,至商設藝廊舉行展覽,王老師帶來了許多劉興欽老師筆下之大嬸婆及阿三哥等漫畫人物一系列的創意商品以及自身的雕塑作品來與大家見面,此次展覽共分為三個部份,讓我們先一睹為快吧。
1. 千斤力不如妙點子
樂觀、幽默集一身的漫畫、發明大師劉興欽老師,他的一句話「千斤力不如妙點子」, 讓王淇郎對他產生無比的好奇。遇到問題絕不退縮,只要動個腦就有答案了。這一系列的創意商品,是由劉興欽老師授權使用其筆下之大嬸婆及阿三哥等漫畫人物衍生製作的,從立體雕塑作品、藝品、紀念性商品到美味食品禮盒等衍生商品,至今仍不 斷的在開發。

2. 山中茶水天上來
「天公伯啊!請保佑我們一家大小、豬、牛、雞….等人畜平安興旺…」這是小時候家裡只要人畜有異狀,就常聽到媽媽對著天空祈求的詞句,接著就是說出要如何還願了,「山中茶水天上來」系列創意商品,是劉興欽老師以大嬸婆為主角的奉茶行善且感人的故事,藉故事內容提醒世人為善積福的觀念。

3. 王淇郎雕塑藝術
王老師認為,雕塑是應用各種媒材在創作品上玩加與減的遊戲,也可以是無中生有的思維與創造行為,當對雕塑有興趣後,再接受基礎的繪畫訓練,就可以依自己想要的形態 與感覺,使用適合的媒材去雕塑作品了。
看別人所看不到的是觀察力,想別人所想不到的是想像力,做別人所做不到的是技術能 力,這就是王淇郎老師對創作的基本要訣。還意猶未盡嗎?快來設計大樓3樓商設藝廊欣賞指教。
