Teachers and students are faced with difficulties of working with personal businesses and it’s essential to develop trust and respect before being able to cooperate together.”

Assistant Professor of the Department Chinese, Yen-wen Chou, stated, “One film that was made for research about the controversial second phase of Danhai New Town called the Distance of Guanyin Mountain. The project received many voices about the effects of individuals immigrating from Guanyin Mountain to Danhai New Town and how it relates to the natives in the area. The film attempts to grasp all of the different opinions from both sides related to the topic.”

Third-year student of the Department of Mass Communication, Yi-qun Yang, stated, “I’m really surprised that the projects that we created will be able to be utilized for educational purposes. It’s great to be able to get many of these relatively conservative people’s ideas into the public eye so that they can be discussed and attended to.” Sinn-Cheng Lin expressed, “Tamsui Wiki was established to give people a link that connects them to the diversity of culturally related projects that are always happening in the area.” (For more information visit link http://tamsui.dils.tku.edu.tw/ )
