Grounded theory, Exploratory practice, Improved standards, refined quality
To be in line with the implementation of university evaluation projects, TWAEA has extensively collected information on higher education evaluations from other developed countries and compiled the findings into a book series of International Higher Education Evaluation System based on countries.
Between 2007 and 2009, books on the evaluation systems in Japan, the UK, Sweden, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Australia and the US were published, and the book series is the first in Taiwan to systematically introduce the evaluation system of higher education in various other countries.
In 2009, TWAEA published “Our Universities and Management Education in Transformation”, a book written by renown Professor Paul S.C. Hsu, known as “Father of management education in Taiwan,” which elaborates on university positioning, features, evaluation and management education. To put the evaluation philosophy in practice and diffuse the philosophy, the Association has invited scholars and experts to form a “Glossary Editing Committee”, and “Evaluation Glossary on Taiwan's Higher Vocational Education” was then published in 2015.
Facing the booming trends of study on school management in recent years, TWAEA has introduced “From IR 1.0 to 2.0”, “IR Key Password: Actual Practice of School Affairs Management”, “IR of Universities”, “IR Strategies: Applications and Strategic Blueprint of School Affairs Studies” and books on specialization of school management since 2016 to help domestic schools to understand the study of school management.
In addition, TWAEA signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan and Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan in 2013 and in 2014, the collaboration started publishing the professional journal “Evaluation Bimonthly”, which serves as a platform for domestic higher education evaluation and accreditation agencies to spread their ideas, opinions, and report on evaluation matters.
