Professor Hsu, Yu-Chien has been promoting Smarter Reading in Mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong for a long time. In the form of TBL seminar, demonstration courses, workshops and one-to-one course guidance, he has steadily and progressively upgraded the professional accomplishments of school teachers in science and technology (smarter classroom), teaching method (cooperative learning) and course (pedagogy) using half of a semester, one semester or one academic year.

The training plan divides the academic year into two periods: the first three months mainly focus on the TBL demonstration classes, the lectures on smarter classroom concept, and the smarter classroom technology enhancement training, the teaching application enhancement training, and the full learning of pedagogy and technology, combined with content to design TBL teaching design (lesson plan) with deep integration of three. In the latter three months, based on the TPC teaching plan, various “course grinding” were conducted intensively, including the in-school academic community course grinding, cross-school course grinding, citywide public publishing and other activities.
Taoyuan City sent “teams” to participate in the Cross-strait Smarter Lecture Contest in 2017 and 2018. Among the teams from more than a dozen cities, Taoyuan Team has won the title for two consecutive years with fruitful results.
