Welcome Program Held for Successful International Applicants, “The First Ewha Pre-Orientation” Welcome Program Held for Successful International Applicants, “The First Ewha Pre-Orientation” The International Student Affairs Team (ISAT) under the Office of International Affairs (Vice president: Lee Hai-young) held the welcome program titled “Ewha Pre-Orientation (EPO)” for successful international applicants as an online event on June 24 (Thursday). Held for the first time this year, the EPO is an event for international students to experience life at Ewha in advance before their official admission through lectures and conversations with senior students. The event was available online through Zoom for successful applicants from 25 countries and attended by more than 200 participants across the world, demonstrating their strong enthusiasm. In the welcome speech, Vice President Lee Hai-young gave words of encouragement, as saying: “We sincerely congratulate and welcome your admission to Ewha,” adding, “We prepared various sessions so that you can experience Ewha’s excellent educational environment and its beautiful campus in advance.” She also added, “I hope this event will guide you to enjoy the precious experience of studying abroad to achieve your dreams.” The welcome event included various programs including a “Sneak peek into Ewha lectures” provided by Ewha faculty members, “Online campus tour,” “Ewha stories from campus friends” to tell incoming students about the campus life and the job search, and an online Q&A session titled “Conversation with Ewha students.” The “Sneak peek into Ewha lectures” consisted of lectures titled “Reading epics in the digital era,” “MBTI personality testing,” and “Chinese performing arts” in Korean, English, and Chinese respectively. Prospective students chose to listen to lectures that they were interested in, regardless of their major, and were able to experience a preview of lectures at Ewha. Next, in “Ewha stories from campus friends,” mentors consisting of international students and alumnae from Ewha spoke about ways to enjoy the life of studying abroad and employment-related stories, which was received favorably. In “Conversation with Ewha students,” teams of two or three international students offered consultations in Korean, English, and Chinese, and students spent quality time in asking and answering questions about academic affairs such as credits, lectures, and scholarships. With the aim to develop an education innovation platform to respond to the digital transformation under the vision of “A Creative and Innovative Platform Leading to a Sustainable Society,” Ewha is enhancing a wide range of support systems to foster global women leaders. ISAT recruits excellent students and offers multifaceted support for international students to grow as leaders who contribute to society. Through diverse programs including the EPO, a welcome program for successful international applicants held for the first time this year, ISAT plans to support excellent international students so that they can grow as women leaders who will make their mark on the global stage.
Ewha Leads Creativity Education for the Future through AI Education
Ewha Leads Creativity Education for the Future through AI Education The Ewha Womans University College of Education and the Graduate School of Education were consecutively selected as grantees of projects to support the creation of the educational foundation for the future society under the supervision of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Korea Foundation for the Advancement of Science & Creativity (KOFAC), thereby demonstrating their capabilities as the best teacher education institution in Korea. College of Education Selected as a Recipient of the AI Education Enhancement Program The College of Education (Dean: Hwang Gyu-ho) was selected as the managing institution of a program titled “Artificial Intelligence (AI) education enhancement program at primary, middle, and high school teacher education colleges in 2021.” Supervised by the MOE and the KOFAC, the project supports prospective teachers to cultivate “AI education” capabilities, which are necessary for the reinforcement of AI education at primary, middle, and high schools. Each selected college will receive financial support of an annual average of 200 million KRW for three years, amounting to a total of 600 million KRW. The project is operated in three categories. The Ewha College of Education was selected in the category of “AI convergence education,” designed for colleges of education that lack a dedicated department for computer education, along with the Seoul National University College of Education. Ewha, in particular, plans to support prospective teachers to design classes that can foster AI knowledge in relation to subject education and to develop the ability to skillfully utilize diverse AI-based educational technologies. Hwang Gyu-ho, Dean of the College of Education, emphasized the importance of the selection, remarking, “It is a significant development in relation to the ongoing reorganization of the curriculum for 2022. It allows us to examine the direction of ‘AI literacy' education for students of future generations while also preparing in advance for the direction of teacher education that will become necessary to that end.” The College of Education and the Graduate School of Education Consecutively Selected as a Recipient of the “Regional Center for Creativity Education” Project The College of Education (Dean: Hwang Gyu-ho) and the Graduate School of Education (Dean: Han You-kyung) were consecutively selected as managing institutions of the “Regional Center for Creativity Education 2021” (PI: Chung Jae-young, Department of Education). The “Regional Center for Creativity Education” project organized by the MOE and the KOFAC is a program that aims to foster creative personnel who will lead the future convergence era in preparation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Ewha was solely selected as the managing institution of the project among colleges of education across the Seoul metropolitan area in 2018 and has contributed to strengthening teachers’ capacity in creativity education and spreading creativity education programs as a hub for the realization of creativity education. This year, the college’s outstanding capacity was recognized through its reselection as the three-year managing institution of the Regional Center for Creativity Education. The Regional Center for Creativity Education will be supported and operated for three years from June 2021 to February 2024, and funded with 160 million KRW annually, amounting to a total of 480 million KRW. Ewha plans to operate the “AI-based Regional Center for Creativity Education” based on its operational achievements over the last three years, as well as its excellence in human and material resources for AI convergence education and its capacity as a national-level research and support center. Accordingly, Ewha was selected as a recipient of the “College of Education Leading Creativity Education” program last year, and newly selected as a grantee of the “Regional Center for Creativity Education” and the “AI Education Enhancement Program” this year, which allowed the school to be selected as the managing institution for all three major projects supported by the MOE and the KOFAC, consolidating its status as Korea’s best teacher education institution and a leader of future education.
