EMI: English as aMedium of Instruction/使用英語進行教學
(During class, I speak English only. That is the rule for teachers, and meanwhile someone is "looking at/monitoring" me. But during the break or after class, students can speak Mandarin with me or discuss in the LINE group. However, I would like to encourage non-English native students to practice more in any chance)
I ever studied my PhD program in the US for several years, and I completely understand the frustration/fear/stress with my not-good English. Now, I am a teacher, I obligate to help students who are not English native speakers. Any questions, please let me know.
And, you will be there:

How to call me?
My name on the passport is I-Yuan Chiang/江易原 (Chiang read as similar to "John")
1. One Dollar (I like people to call my nickname. When I was a PhD student in the US, my advisor Dr. Thomas Henick-Kling and all collegues also called me One Dollar in most times.)
----(We use "Dr." and full name only a few formal situations, like introducing speakers in a seminar or ceremony)
2. Dr. I-Yuan Chiang (only in formal meetings or others)
(Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, formally called Chiang Kai-shek International Airport)(the same spelling in English: Chiang. But different in Mandarin)
Foods and Nutrition (認識食品與營養) By
Dr. I-Yuan Chiang/江易原（本次為全英文授課之通識）
Course objectives and features
*An understanding of how food safety, sanitation, and regulations affect our daily life.
*An understanding of nutrition and health problems associated with food and diet.
3. Laboratory: Some interesting topics, for example, how to use sanitizer to prepare safe drinking water, and an important item of EGS.
(the following are temporary, students and I will discuss having a good grading way)
No exams or quizzes (unless students want that)
0. Interactions/group discussion during class (0%, but required) One of the important policy of IHP is to encourage each student to say something and interact during class (to practice oral skills that are important in the US).
I abbey the rules.
Notice: No ponishment, no enforcement, and only encourangement
Students will be
separated assigned into several groups. Each group members need to "say something" at least once in the week of class.
For example: Student A, B, C, D, and E in Group 1. When A and B share/answer something, the next turn will be the other student to share/answer.
About say something, I hope student can:
*Answer or ask question(s): Students can either answer or ask any question related to the current topic.
*Share important issues or news related to the lectures:
*Share your considerations/opinions/ideas: What are the problems/situations/laws in your country/US/Taiwan. Do you have any ideas to solve the problem? Does the solution bring new business models?
----->Do not worry! The part is 0%. It means this part is not related to your score. Thus, feel easy to interact in the class.
Attendance (12%, required).
*As KNU's policy, faculty/teachers should take the attendance every week during the class. One mark for each attendance a week, up to 12 marks
*Notice: IHP's policy: students will be failed if the absence reaches 1/3 or more. Generally, I take the roll call in the beginning of the second class.
2. Oral presentation with slides (60%, required)
3. Report (18%, optional. Focus on academic writing. Please discuss the format with any IHP teacher).
The report can be in print or digital form (If in ditical form, it can be a part of digital notes).
*Select a topic related to this course.
*Conduct research (or literature review)
*Five basic structure of a report: introduction, methods, results and discussion (500 - 1,000 words is OK)
*Academic writing is different from spoken English. For freshman, it is never too early.
*Citation and reference--what you must learn. (You can check this:
How do I cite a report in APA? From Walden University, How To Write An
Academic Report from Middlesex University Lodon, or similar articles)
4. Digital notes (5%, optional). I encourage students to take and show your digitized notes. Slides for presentation can be part of digital notes.
5. Translation or creative works (5%, optional):
Please tell me your idea/plan/project prior to do this work.
5a. For non-English native speakers: You can translate documents from WHO/FAO or other organizations into your mother language.
5b. For English native speakers: You can (1) translate useful information into
English, such as food or nutrition guidelines written in Taiwanese
Mandarin. (2) correct the English (laws/regulations/guidelines) from The Ministry of Health and Welfare, Taiwan. The competence authorities outsourced the translation works, however, some translations were horrible. And you can help correct them.
5c. Other work (you can discuss your ideas with One Dollar in advance)
If students are confident/positive/aggressive/self-driven, we can collaborate to publish book(s) or open textbook(s) with ISBNs (or you can do yourself, and I can help). Thus, you will have book(s) before graduation or departure to the US. If the translated documents or textbook(s) (PDF files or paper-print) can be downloaded or circulated, and it will be a great contribution to introducing such knowledge in his/her country.
Learning materials and textbooks
Open licensed materials will be used in this course, and that include documents from FAO and WHO, US, Australia, UK. Thus, students can get those documents for free and materials are legal to use.

KNU taking a roll call policy
(they did not have it in English, thus I used Google Translate without proof-reading--it is not my duty)
Dear teachers, please teach:
In order to increase student attendance and meet the needs of the Ministry of Education for teaching quality inspection and school evaluation, teachers must take roll call every week and there should be clear records.
Teachers are requested to publicize to students that roll call will be held every week. In order to prevent teachers from being unable to provide relevant paper roll call records during temporary inspections, teachers are required to log attendance and absence data for each week's classes into the academic information system after roll call in class. , in order to quickly submit student attendance information. System operating instructions are attached.
This login system is only for teachers’ reference and to provide supporting evidence. The Academic Affairs Office will not take any action against students due to absence registration; the early warning of "not showing up for class in the past four weeks" and the assignment of "not showing up for class for 1/3 of this semester" at the end of the semester are still A separate login is required.
Please do not only check attendance or absence, so as not to cause trouble for students to apply for various scholarships or internships. Please select all attendance first, and then change the non-attendance to absence or leave.
