CAU Presents Curriculum Excellence Certificates and Selects Syllabus Worth to Share
Chung-Ang University (CAU) held a ceremony to present the curriculum excellence certificates and an award to those who devised the best syllabuses at the Unviersity Club (UC) located on the 11th floor of Building 102–also known as R&D Center–at 11am on February 27th, 2017 (Monday).
Chairs of ten departments (or schools) made progress in the 2016 ACE initiative and successfully acquired the curriculum certificates. These ten chairs together with President Kim Chang-soo, Provost Kang Tae-jung, Executive Director Kim Chang-il of Office of Academic Affairs, Director Yoo Jung-ae of Center for Curriculum Excellence, and Professor Jung In-kyung, who represented those who devised the best syllabuses and won the award, took part in the ceremony.
First of all, Director Yoo Jung-ae gave a presentation on the history and achievement of the Curriculum Certificate Initiative, and asked the departments (or schools) to proactively participate in the third-stage achievement certificate process which will be carried out soon. Afterwards, CAU held the ceremony to present the curriculum excellence certificates and the award to those who devised the best syllabuses.
At the ceremony, President Kim Chang-soo said that since these ten departments (or schools) obtained the curriculum certificates which were known to be difficult, CAU asked the departments (or schools) to gear up for their effort to provide the high-quality education for our students. He added that, for our part, CAU would spare no effort into supporting the Curriculum Certificate Initiative.
The best syllabuses were selected after reviewing and evaluating a total of 5,900 syllabuses devised in 2016. Based on this evaluation, Committee for Selecting the Best Syllabus made a final decision to choose the twenty best syllabuses through qualitative assessment.
2017 marks the fourth anniversary of the foundation of Center for Curriculum Excellence, and the center has been conducting various initiatives in order to improve CAU’s education management system.
