2024 Conference on Teaching Practice



2024 Conference on Competence-Based Education:

Innovation in Digital Empowerment and Social Practice

Organizer: College of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Fu Jen Catholic University

Co-Organizer: College of Foreign Languages, Tamkang University


Just as teaching and learning are interconnected and mutually reinforcing, so are teaching and research. With this belief, the College of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Fu Jen Catholic University, has been organizing annual conferences on Teaching Practice in Foreign Languages and Literatures since 2019 in order to promote teaching practice research. We invited the College of Foreign Languages at Tamkang University to co-organize the 2024 conference, titled “Competence-Based Education: Innovation in Digital Empowerment and Social Practice,” in response to two major developments in and around 2022 to 2023: the local universities' receiving the first group of high school graduates educated under the 108 Competence-Based  Curriculum Guidelines (108 課綱, hereafter 108 Curriculum) and the rapid rise of AIGC technology.  Just as educators and teachers have started to observe and discuss whether and how the 108 Curriculum brings about substantial changes in students’ learning modes in Taiwan since Fall, 2022, ChatGPT is sweeping the globe and stimulating heated discussions across various fields, including educational fields, about strategies of its application and ethical guidelines for its usage. Some of the questions raised are: how can foreign language teachers utilize technology to empower students instead of being left behind in the fast-paced AI trends? How can foreign language professionals and learners harness their sensitivity to various forms of “language”, such as text, image, multimedia, programming language, and everyday life language, and actively engage in cross-disciplinary information processing and cross-cultural communication in various domains while avoiding the phenomenon of GIGO (Garbage in, Garbage out)?


These questions, as a matter of fact, foreground the importance of competence-based education, since digital empowerment and social practice in language education today cannot ignore either of these two recent trends. The competencies that students can cultivate through a competence-based teaching approach, including autonomous learning, creative thinking, critical thinking, and transformative competencies, are areas where AI (still) lacks, just as the core principles of competence-based education—taking the initiative, engaging in interaction, and seeking the common good—are in line with the attitude required to embrace AI. How do educators and learners, then, develop these competencies along with AI's cognitive process, such as integration, logical reasoning and computational thinking? What roles do foreign language teachers serve in students’ learning with AI and their developing these competencies?
