Video Introduction

This video is adapted from 10.3390/educsci11040171

The purpose of this video is to provide other developing countries in the region a reference on the successful design education reformation in Taiwan. The video first reviews Taiwan’s economic and design development to show their interconnection with local culture and the global market. Next, the video explores Taiwan’s design education development which transforms from adopting STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) in secondary school, and understands how it overcomes challenges by the help of both public and private sectors. Last, a conceptual framework is proposed to present and study Taiwan’s design education development. The result from case studies validates that STEAM can reach SAD (science, arts, and design) in higher education and CHEER (collaboration, humanity, empathy, ecology, and renaissance) in design practice. Therefore, the result and implications provided by this video can serve as a reference for other countries in the region who share similar cultural and socioeconomic development and future goals as Taiwan.
