Main Article Content
Aiming to address the methodology to explore and broaden college teachers’ international vision and horizon for engineering education of college students or engineers, this paper proposed an exploration framework based on Johari Window model. The framework of international vision exploration for teachers includes four zones: open/active vision, called Zone A; hidden/sleeping vision, called Zone B; blind/potential vision, called Zone C; and unknown/darkness vision, called Zone D. The four zones’ characteristics and formation mechanisms were generally analyzed, the corresponding driving forces were then identified in order to help transform teacher international vision within Zones B, C and D into Zone A. To provide the effective and feasible approach, several significant factors including culture tension, original vision conflict and pure curiosity for unknown were then determined in exploring and improving teacher’s international vision in terms of curiosity, inner creativity, potential vision, career development, and worldwide adaptability on engineering education evolution.
