  • Tzu Chi College of Technology in Taiwan Delegation Visit


    4/13/2007

    A delegation of faculty from Tzu Chi College of Technology in Taiwan visited the Department of Accountancy the week of April 9th.  The focus of the visit was to learn firsthand about the Project Discovery curriculum via course observation and group discussions with UIUC faculty.  The Project Discovery curriculum emphasizes active learning through numerous problem-solving exercises (e.g., cases, group exercises, projects, and simulations) combined with a conceptual understanding of accounting.  Chi-Ping Hou of Tzu Chi College reflects on their visit by stating, “we have aspirations to improve the quality of accounting education and wanted to learn from the UIUC experience. We are indeed very inspired by what we saw, and realize why UIUC’s accountancy program managed to maintain its top rankings and solid reputation over these years.  We have benefited much from this visit and are grateful to UIUC for making this possible.”
