Dr. Chun-Yen Chang is a science education scholar in Taiwan. Currently, he serves as National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) Chair Professor, Director of Science Education Center (NTNU), and Professor of the Graduate Institute of Science Education and the Department of Earth Sciences (NTNU). In the past four years, he has also been a Visiting Professor at the Taipei Medical University, The Education University of Hong Kong, and the Paris 8 University. Dr. Chang’s major research interests include science education and e-Learning, interdisciplinary science learning and science communication.


From the period of 2007-2009, he served as the Discipline Coordinator from the Department of International Cooperation and Science Education at the Ministry of Science Technology (MOST) in Taiwan, and is also a longstanding reviewer of research projects. Dr. Chang has the honor of directing almost 90 MOST funded projects since 1997. From 2011-2016, he was leading another major project, sponsored by the Taiwan Ministry of Education, to establish a “Center for Research Excellence in Science Education (CRESE),” under the "Aim for the Top University Project.” As a representative of NTNU's of Science Education Center, Dr. Chang also joined the European Union's Open Science Resources project, one of the two subprojects for non-EU areas and review research projects by Israel Science Foundation and South Korea's National Research Foundation. In 2015 and 2016, Dr. Chang joined Complex Systems Digital Campus (CS-DC) network. He also serves on the Expert Panel Member of NMC Horizon Report (K-12 Edition & 2017 Horizon Project Higher Education) and Adviser of the Foundation for Information Technology Education and Development (FIT-ED) and Digital Learning for Development (DL4D) Project.


Dr. Chang now is the Editor-in-Chief of the Eurasia Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, and the associate editor for the Journal of Geosciences Education. He is also on the Editorial Board of five SSCI-level journals: (1) British Journal of Educational Technology (educational technology);(2) Studies in Science Education (science education); (3) Learning, Media & Technology (learning technology); (4)Eurasia Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (STEM education); (5) Journal of Science Education and Technology (science education & technology).


Dr. Chang has authored and co-authored more than 100 articles, from which nearly 90% articles are indexed in the Science/Social Science Citation Index (SCI/SSCI) database. Countries, such as the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, Slovenia, Italy, Bulgaria, China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Inner Mongolia, Turkey, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Oman and India, continue to invite Dr. Chang as a keynote/feature speaker. His series of research on science learning environments, published in Science Education in 2005 and 2006, was also reported in the section of “Taiwanese New Discovery,” of the Science Development Journal in 2007. In NSC’s 50th anniversary celebrations, Dr. Chang’s research work on problem-solving ability and automatic scoring of science open-ended questions was honored as one of the NSC’s 50 Great Achievements in 2008.

 

In February 2013, Dr. Chang's catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) study was privileged with a report by the New York Times Sunday Magazine, as well as in the news featured on Association of Psychological Science website. In 2003, 2009 and 2012, Chang was granted three times with one of the highest honors given by NSC: the “Outstanding Research Award." In 2013, Dr. Chang was presented the Academic Award, for Science Education, by the Ministry of Education.
