In recent years, the field of big data has attracted attention from various industries and technology fields.
Facing the challenges of international competition, ageing society and globalization, the higher education in Taiwan is inspired to use big data or empirical information to conduct professional management of school affairs and this also driven the trend of institutional research.
TWAEA has accumulated years of business relationships and experience and has a good understanding of the sources and meanings of publicly available information.
In 2016, TWAEA launched the "Taiwan's School Management and Information Integration Pilot Project" (in 2019, renamed as the "Taiwan Institutional Research Cooperation" or TIRC) which effectively collected public information from government ministries and agencies through the existing channels to conduct data warehousing and analysis.
Key data and analysis with both breadth and depth are then provided to help schools understand the meanings of data in a short period of time and use their advantages to meet challenges. In order to expand the benefits of studying school management, TIRC developed a survey platform in 2017 and launched a variety of surveys such as adapting to campus life for new university students nationwide, learning performance and satisfaction of Taiwanese, Thai and Japanese students and others and helping schools to find their final piece of puzzles to their study of school affairs management.
