Chronology of Nanotechnology human resource development program

 
  2003  
 

The Nanotechnology Human Resource Development Program (NHRD) was officially launched, with five Regional Education Centers set up to run the program. The K-12 Nanotechnology Program and the Higher Education Nanotechnology Program were also set up as part of the NHRD.

 
 
  2004  
 

With the aim of laying the groundwork for the development of nanoscience and nanotechnology in Taiwan, The Ministry of Education's Advisory Office set up the National Office for Promoting the Nanotechnology Human Resource Development Program and established a network of digital learning platforms. The Taiwan Science Education Center, the National Museum of Natural Sciences and the National Science and Technology Museum became working partners in the program.

 
 
  2005  
 

More than 1,000 first generation nanoscience and nanotechnology teachers completed their initial training programs. Several multimedia educational materials were published, including comics, CDs and interactive software.

 
 
  2006  
 

Masters Degrees in nanotechnology-related disciplines were set up in partnership with industrial enterprises. New initiatives to further promote nanoscience and nanotechnology included school science camps, teacher workshops and the development of online learning resources. Teachers from across Taiwan attended the K-12 Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Teachers Conference.

 
 
  2007  
  A wide range of new educational materials were published. The Frontier Professional Training Center enjoyed an enthusiastic response to its National Innovation in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Competition.  
 
  2008  
  The teaching of nanotechnology no longer sat on the periphery of science education and became fully integrated in the national curriculum. Regional Education Development Centers designed courses suitable for high school students and worked with higher education institutions to offer interdisciplinary courses with distance learning and online tutorials available to students. The Education Development Centers worked with the Taiwan Science Education Center, the National Museum of Natural Sciences and the National Museum of Science and Technology to run nanoscience and nanotechnology camps and exhibitions.  
 
  2009  
  The National Science Council's Department of Science Education launched Phase 2 of the Nanotechnology Human Resource Development Program. This continued and expanded on the work of Phase 1, with courses in nanoscience and nanotechnology revised and adapted based on research into the success or otherwise of fledgling courses. 2009 also saw the opening of the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Teaching Knowledge and Understanding.  
 
  2010  
 

We continued the critical work of research and development in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The HNRD program, now well into Phase 2, has seen the development of clear teaching strategies and the provision of quality teaching materials. A wide range of hands-on educational experiences in the nano field have been established to help popularize and enrich? students' learning experiences. We have continued participating in the International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference in Tokyo, Japan. Our contribution to this event has helped cement our international reputation in the nanotechnology field and opened up further international communication channels.
