CURRENT RESEARCH IN PROGRESS
University Grant Projects (2020~Present ): Chaoyang Academic Prestige Promotion Project
From the areas of excellence in both academies, the Center is to determine the direction of research and development. Through implementing related programs, the Center will provide the University with international conferences that integrate relevant fields to achieve higher quality of academic work, thereby, upbring research standards, as well as promote international academic exchanges.
University Grant Projects (2018~2021): Research Center of Holistic Development for Young Children.
The goal of this project is to examine the effectiveness of the Holistic Development for Young Children.
University's featured Grant Projects (2015~2018): Holistic Music Educational Approach for Young Children's Multiple Developments
The goal of this project was to examine the effectiveness of the HMEAYC in both mainstream and special education settings.
Industry-University Cooperation Projects of Taiwan (2013~2019)
Music Educational Therapy Project: Fund for Children and Families
The goals of the project are to assist the service institute of Taiwan Fund for Children and Families on increasing children with disabilities multiple developments and training all teachers and therapists how to implement "Music Educational Therapy".
An International Pilot Study (2020~Present): Maternal perceptions of maternal-infant attachment linked with maternal infant-directed musical activities in urbanized populations
This study design involves samples of convenience and will be conducted by a team of international researchers in cities of their choice, and collective results will be reported and disseminated for the international profession.
FIPSE (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education) (2010~2012)
The goal of the project is to promote online academic student and faculty cooperation to improve services for children in vulnerable conditions. An international multi-discipline consortium, which includes SUNY Ulster and the University of Arizona in the US, the University of Manitoba and Red Deer College in Canada, and the Instituto Tecnologico de Sonora and the Universidad Panamericana in Mexico will collaborate in coursework, field experiences, and develop an advanced curriculum during the next three years. Using a 'blended' or 'hybrid' approach to education, students in social work, family studies and inclusive special needs education will learn together in face-to-face and online environments, connected across three nations by internet and mobile technology.
SUNY COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) Project(2011~2013)
The SUNY COIL Center is working with a group of SUNY campuses which share the goal of enhancing campus internationalization by embedding online cross-border collaborations into their courses and through other related projects. The COIL approach is to link a class at SUNY with one at a university abroad. The classes may be totally online or offered in a blended format with face-to-face sessions taking place at both schools while collaborative work between the groups takes place online. The courses are always team-taught, with a faculty member at SUNY working with a peer at a partner institution. Our method promotes interactive shared coursework, emphasizing experiential learning. We first give our students and those abroad a chance to get to know each other, and then help them develop meaningful projects together.
Government Grant Projects of Taiwan
Deep Plowing Project: Taiwan Fund for Children and Families
The goals of the project are to tie in the service institute's objectives; to provide substantive professional services; to implement the significance of industry-university cooperation.

Application of haptic assistive technology to improve motion/ dancing activities for children with visual loss and partially sighted (99-2221-E-324-026-MY2 ) (2010~2012)
Innovative design using technology has become an increasingly important role in special education by reducing the barrier of learning. Rhythm may strengthen the body control, gain confidence in the body coordination and balance. Games and the rhythm movements are good for the children's body and mind development.
This project aims to combine technology and design, to develop educational facilities which can be used to educate children with physical or visual disabilities. The main areas involve:
1. Using Bluetooth device to create vibration on nets for movement guidance;
2. Using air stream for movement guidance;
3. Using servos mechanism for movement guidance;
4. Integrating movement aid technology to develop teaching materials for children with visual and physical disabilities.
This project hopes to remove difficulties faced by children with visually impaired when they try to move with the rhythm. The project team is formed across different departments, which are the Department of Industrial Design, the Department of Computer Communication and the Department of Early Childhood Development and Education. By the support from the team members and the field observation in the real teaching environment, ideas are gathered and product is improved through the designing and engineering. Different factors in engineering and design will be evaluated to minimize the cost issue. This will help the children with visually impaired in the future development. In the end, there will be a usable model to demonstrate the functionalities. In addition, visually impaired children will be invited to try it with the developed teaching materials, to confirm the feasibility of the design.
A Study of the Use of Technology of Sounds and Physical Movement with Visually Impaired Children (NSC 98-2511-S-324-005) (2009~2010)
The purposes of the study were (1) integrating sounds, assistive technology of physical movement to help the development of physical movement and language of children with multiple disabilities and visual impairment; (2) inventing parity and local equipment of tactile toy to enhance the development of physical movement of children with multiple disabilities and visual impairment.
The methodology was both of qualitative and quantitative study. Seven 4-6 year-old subjects with multiple disabilities and visual impairment were selected by purposive sampling to participate in the study. The duration was 6 months with 40-minute instructional sessions once per week. The data analysis was through semi-structured observation forms and anecdotal logs.
Through a series of systematic music activities with Soundbeam equipment, the results of the study were as follows:
1. The subjects' ability of physical movement and language had a positive improvement. The social validity also showed the positive support for the result.
2. The invention of parity and local equipment of tactile 他y was able to assist the subjects' development of physical movement.
The results show the effectiveness of the music activities and the invented equipment on developing physical movement of children with multiple disabilities and visual impairment.
