Time flies when we’re having fun! Take a look at this quick summary of our Lab "history".
2014 started strong, with an International Workshop on Educational Applications of 3D Multi-User Virtual Environments. Several experts, including Mr. Mark Elwell, from the Hakusan International School, Japan, and Mr. Scott Grant, from Monash University, Australia, participated and shared their experiences and future plans for these educational tools.
2013 was a year full of activities and traveling! We started the year organizing an activity for the Ministry of Education, which we entitled “Passing the flame” (薪火相傳研習會). About 70 professors from all over Taiwan were invited to attend this special activity, where senior professors shared their knowledge with juniors. Talks, workshops, discussions, etc. A two-day full agenda that left us exhausted, but with a great feeling and new knowledge.
New members joined the TELL Lab, including a new Post-Doctoral researcher, Dr. Tsun-Ju Lin, who graduated from Washington State University, WA, USA. Other two members joined, Carlos Sánchez-Martín, former manager of the Modern Languages Technology Center at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, USA, and Szu-Yun Wang, an MA graduate from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA. Almost right after Dr. Lin joined us, Dr. Liu continued her journey as a newly hired professor at the Department of Applied English, at KaiNan University.
Before 2012 ... we didn't have a Website, so there is no narrative for what we did... but we certainly had lots of activities, attended many conferences, published many papers... and had lots of fun!
