In order to match up to our country's policies of life-long learning and further education and develop the functions of extension educational in colleges, our college continue to put into practice the vocational extension education. In the second semester of 2007, National Taitung Junior College, Extension Education Center and subsidiary Extension Senior Vocational School were funded.
The purpose of the extension education is to cooperate with the locals' need and create diverse curriculums and a life-long learning environment where everyone can be able to get the learning chances anytime anywhere. Besides, the extension education provides adults the opportunities of further education and emphasizes on their chances to have education, their learning requirements, and learning characters.
The courses which are from regular to irregular and informal learning were planed. The extension education provides the chances for adults who could not graduated from senior high or senior vocational school because of the difficulties of occupation or family to get the high school diploma or associates degrees by studying in the evening or on weekends. Also, Extension Education Center has high regard for the communities' demands for extension education. We would like to reach the goal of sharing the resources and manpower between junior college and community. Furthermore, we popularize the courses of liberal arts and service and hold some informal learning activities, such as speeches, study groups, and community service. We look forward to improving the qualities of manpower and life between the teachers and students in our college and people in Taitung and then make them become the best citizens of globalization.
