In the opening ceremony, University President Chien-Huang Lin emphasized that the use of VR, AR and other digital technology for creative teaching encourages students to learn independently. In recent years, TMU has focused on cultivating cross-disciplinary innovative talents for the AI era. He hopes that this exhibition can give the University’s teachers and students a richer and more diverse vision. Experience learning through games and hands-on experience can stimulate more imagination and creativity, and further integrate a cultural and artistic climate into campus life.

With the help of the exhibition tour guide, President Chien-Huang Lin operates the AR device to watch the digitalized Great Universal Geographic Map.

In the last two years, the National Palace Museum has developed interactive gaming teaching materials, particularly VR application to introduce artifacts in the Museum.

In 2020, the TMU Center for Arts and Humanities also received National Palace Museum project funding to integrate museum resources and TMU medical expertise. Through courses and workshops, students formulated plans for incorporating elements of cultural arts and digital technology into community medical care teaching plans. Currently, the curriculum has been implemented into a pilot elderly care course. In addition, a tour of the National Palace Museum was also conducted for a group of elderly. These activities demonstrate TMU’s dedication to cultivating humanistic literacy, furthering humanistic education, and emphasizing humanistic practice and social responsibility. It looks forward to continuing partnership with the National Palace Museum to develop community-based medical care models with local characteristics.
