Leading by example, encouraging students to adopt a persevering attitude is essential for paving the way to a broader future. Since taking up teaching duties, Professor Hsiao has maintained excellent interaction and communication with students, adjusting his teaching methods and pace based on their immediate feedback, aiming to help each student continuously improve and enrich themselves.

The driving force for continuous learning lies in stimulating students’ curiosity.

Continuous learning is crucial not only for students but also for teachers. Students often introduce new knowledge and content in their reports, providing different ideas and perspectives. Professor Hsiao smiled and said, “Maintaining an open mind and gaining inspiration from students help enrich teaching materials and lesson plans continuously.” As the times change, teaching materials need to keep pace with the times. By staying updated and finding new cases, understanding current applications and development trends, and incorporating these trends into teaching materials, students can see how their knowledge can be applied in reality.

Additionally, guiding students to stimulate their curiosity and learn to find new applications and cases in life can help them better understand and apply knowledge. The key to continuous learning lies in constantly seeking new application cases and trends, integrating them into teaching, and inspiring students’ curiosity and spirit of exploration. Through these methods, enthusiasm for learning is maintained, and the latest knowledge and abilities are imparted to students.

There is no fixed method in teaching, only continuous adjustment.

To ensure students achieve a certain level of learning effectiveness, Professor Hsiao provides self-made learning handouts before class, allowing students to record key points and class content more quickly, enhancing their focus in class and improving learning impressions. However, during the teaching process, it was found that for courses related to mathematics and programming, where students need to focus on listening and understanding, taking notes simultaneously resulted in poorer learning outcomes. This discovery motivated Professor Hsiao to explore teaching methods further!

Choosing appropriate teaching methods based on feedback and the characteristics of different courses is crucial. This teaching flexibility enables Professor Hsiao to better respond to students’ needs, ensuring that students can focus more on learning and improve learning effectiveness in class. Encouraging students to actively ask questions in class not only helps them understand the course but also allows for timely interaction and feedback, continuously adjusting during the teaching process to ensure maximum learning effectiveness.

Final reports are conducted in a manner that combines theory with practice, helping students delve deeper into their studies and apply theory to real-world situations. However, challenges may arise when facing practical applications, such as the need to search for existing products on the market and improve them using human factors engineering methods, requiring a deep understanding of the product and identifying areas for improvement. Students may feel confused about the feasibility of their chosen topics, and Professor Hsiao provides timely suggestions, indicating whether similar reports exist or suggesting a change in approach.

To understand students’ participation in class, apart from guiding them through the stages of completing the final report, time is allocated for discussion and planning, ensuring progress at each stage and resolving potential issues promptly. Combining theory with practice in teaching has a positive and significant impact on students’ learning effectiveness. Through appropriate guidance and stage-by-stage assistance, Professor Hsiao helps students overcome difficulties, achieve better learning outcomes, and cultivate their practical application abilities.

Students’ success is the true success of a teacher.

Regardless of whether they choose further education or employment in the future, students often feel lost and helpless, and understanding one’s own professional knowledge and skills is crucial. Professor Hsiao periodically shares experiences with graduating students, emphasizing the importance of applying what they have learned. “It’s important to learn and apply, but even more important is learning how to apply!” Finding a direction of interest and investing more time in learning, integrating what they have learned, and applying it, this innovative thinking and cross-disciplinary integration abilities will set them apart in specific fields and open up new futures for themselves.

Encouraging students not only to maintain a persevering attitude but also to fully utilize their acquired knowledge, self-improvement, and contribute to society is what Professor Hsiao hopes for and is most pleased about. He firmly believes that “Students’ success is the true success of a teacher!” and encourages himself to continue learning and improving on the teaching journey.
