The Efficiency and Effectiveness of the K-12 Energy Technology Education Promotion Centers in Taiwan

Abstract

In order to promote energy technology literacy for graders K-12, the Ministry of Education (MOE) in Taiwan initiated a K-12 Energy Technology Education Project in September 2010. This project has one project office, affiliated to a university, and 18 promotion centers affiliated to 18 schools, including 5 regional ones for upper-secondary schools and 13 county/city ones for kindergartens, elementary schools and lower-secondary schools. The promotion centers work on: (1) Recruiting seed teachers for grades K-12, (2) Recruiting volunteers and narrators for promotion centers, (3) Promoting energy education within their regions/counties/cities, and (4) Establishing websites for energy technology education. Yearly key performance indicators (KPIs) of each promotion center are negotiated among the project office and the promotion centers. In addition to conducting a variety of interactions and periodical KPI reviews, the project office invites site-visit teams to visit each center once a year. This 39-month project will be ended at the end of 2013. As the project director, the presenter plans to share the experience of this project. In his presentation, the presenter will briefly introduce the evolution and status of this project, and then elaborate the efficiency and effectiveness of the promotion centers. Both the efficiency and effectiveness of the promotion centers will be drawn from a document analysis of all centers’ yearly site-visit reports.
