National Taipei University of Education, which prepares future Taiwanese teachers for their profession, will cooperate with Palacký University Olomouc. Representatives of both schools have signed a Memorandum of Understanding.
The Memorandum is based on the existing cooperation between the Institute of Education and Social Studies at the UP Faculty of Education and Taipei University. The cooperation between the two schools can now develop officially in many areas. Rector Martin Procházka signed the document on behalf of Palacký University, and President Ching-Ho Chen signed on behalf of National Taipei University of Education.
“We are definitely interested in the exchange of teachers and researchers, as well as in student mobility within Bachelor’s, Master’s, and doctoral programmes. We are also interested in the mobility of administrative and professional staff, as well as joint courses, study tours, conferences, and seminars. Among other things, we are also preparing cooperation on joint research projects, and we are interested in exchanging information and resources,” said Jana Kantorová from the Institute of Education and Social Studies.
In addition, she said that the Memorandum has already been followed up by joint scientific and research activities which will further be intensified, and in the wider context will contribute to cooperation between democratic countries.
“We’re already preparing an online conference together on teacher training: ‘Education in the Czech Republic’, which will take place on 13 May 2022,” she added.
