國立政治大學選舉研究中心研究員/政治學系教授俞振華老師係本國籍教師(美國哥倫比亞大學博士),目前於政治大學教授EMI課程,同時多次成功指導學生成功申請大專生科技部計畫。此外,俞老師指導學生多次獲得國內各大政治相關學術組織所頒之論文獎。

俞教授的學術生涯背景與本院多數教師類似,均為本國籍而在國外取得博士學位後,返台任教且教授EMI課程。俞教授分享個人經驗,直指EMI課程、大專生科技部計畫和教師本人的學術出版,是可以相結合,可以相生而不相剋。其中關鍵在於教師能否將自身研究融入教學內容,和學生教學相長。目標明確地引導學生參與課程與教學,才是三者共同發展的關鍵。如果各自獨立,三者都是負擔,但相結合後,負擔轉為推力。

本次參與之院內人員,均為系所主管或EMI課程現任及預備開設之教師,透過和俞教授的交流,對EMI課程的未來推動和個人自身的教學/研究策略,有較為清晰的認識,助益甚大。

Prof. Chen-hua Yu, a researcher at the Center for Election Studies/Professor of the Department of Political Science at National Chengchi University, is a Taiwanese-born faculty member ( with a PhD from Columbia University) who currently teaches EMI courses at National Chengchi University and has successfully guided students to apply for the Ministry of Science and Technology program for college students on numerous occasions. In addition, Prof. Yu has been supervised many thesis which then received awards from major political science organizations in Taiwan.

Prof. Yu's academic background is similar to that of most of the faculty members in TKU, in that he is a native of Taiwan and returned to Taiwan to teach EMI courses after receiving his PhD degree abroad. Professor Yu shared his personal experience and pointed out that the EMI curriculum, the Ministry of Science and Technology projects, and the faculty's own academic publications can be combined, to be complimentary and not antithetical to one another. The key lies in whether the faculty can integrate their own research into the teaching content, and to grow with the teaching given to the students. The critical element to the joint development of all three is to have a clear goal of guiding students through the curriculum and teaching. If they are independent, they would all be a burden, but when they are combined, the burden turns into a driving force.

Through the exchange with Prof. Yu, the attendees, who are all department chairs or current and prospective EMI program faculty, gained a clearer understanding of the future of the EMI program and their own teaching/research strategies, which will be very helpful in the long run.
