Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess attempts to bridge the gap between study and application in industry-oriented technology programs at senior high schools in Taiwan. This education reengineering project was implemented in an attempt to provide students with more immediate employability upon graduation. Teachers of professional subjects in senior high schools in Taiwan were the participants in this study. A total of 945 questionnaires were distributed using purposive sampling, of which 742 valid questionnaires were returned, a recovery rate of 78.50%. This study includes a literature review, discussions with experts, and a questionnaire. Following questionnaire development and distribution, results were analyzed using SPSS. Respondents that had taught for 21 years or more expressed greater approval of the project than those that had taught for 5 years or less. On the whole, teachers at senior high schools show a high level of approval for project implementation.
