Along with the establishment of General Education Center at National Chengchi University in 2004, the Foreign Language Course Guidelines were stipulated in the same school year. These Guidelines have since guided all teachers in their design and implementation of relevant courses. In 2009, prior to this current project and based on the said document, the Foreign Language Center conducted a relevant research project -- “Evaluation of the English Course Criteria and Perceived Learning Outcomes: Dual Perspectives from Teachers and Students at National Chengchi University.” Results of the project suggested possible areas for improvement that were followed up in this study. Based on the findings from the 2009 project, a task force of seven faculty members was formed in May of 2010 to further discuss the revision of the Guidelines. In addition, the University’s newly developed General Education Guidelines and Students’ Core Ability List were consulted as part of the framework. The team started with several thorough internal discussions to draft the new Guidelines that addressed the new challenges and expectations. This was followed by a series of five seminars, to each of which a professor, with foreign language program administration experience at other prestigious universities in Taiwan, was invited in order to review and discuss the new proposed Course Guidelines with the team. After some of these outside perspectives were incorporated, the task force further revised the document and presents the finalized new Course Guidelines in this report. The primary change is that the document has shifted from a language skill focus to one that combines both language skill development and general education cultivation, such as critical thinking and autonomous learning abilities. To be more specific, new elements in the revised Guidelines include a mission statement for College English, a list of suggested teaching activities for individual skill development drawn from our current faculty, and sample integrated-skill course plans designed by the task force. It is hoped that this resulting document will serve as a common guideline to ensure the quality of teaching and learning for all teachers and students involved in College English courses, while leaving room for individual variation and innovation.
