Szu-Yin Chu is currently a Professor at Department of Special Education at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. She received her doctoral degree from the Department of Special Education, University of Texas at Austin, U.S., and joined the faculty as an Associate Professor at National Tsing Hua University (original name: National Hsinchu University of Education), Taiwan in 2015.
She is a teacher educator, a behavior therapist, and an advocate for students with disabilities and their families. Her scholarship is grounded in multi-disciplinary approaches to theory in education. Her current and future plans are to secure funding/grant to design, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of education for young children who are at risk, or with disabilities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
To impact the teaching profession, she not only serves as a teacher, but also as a role model to her students’ teaching views and practices. It is her goal to share with future educators how to design more effective programs and curricula by taking into account the various cultural, linguistic, experiential, and socioeconomic factors that influence the teaching-learning process. To achieve her teaching objectives, a variety of approaches, including class lectures, discussions, simulations, field experiences, training exercises and written assignments, will be utilized to promote learning outcomes.
