In the 2017 “Fall in Love with Adaptive PE (APE) Class” film competition held by Sports Administration of Ministry of Education, Chang-Hung Lee, Associate Professor of SCU Office of Physical Education, nabbed the excellence award in the college/social group division with his film about his PE class for physically challenged students. As an instructor of APE that aims to enhance physical fitness of students with disabilities, Lee stated that only by caring and understanding can a teacher help mentally and physically challenged students to know about sports and then to love it.

Lee always checks the physical and mental state of every student in advance, in order to design the course for their different needs. For example, he made a special ball-picking device so that students in wheel chairs may enjoy table tennis. For Lee, these creative teaching aids are not only for teaching but for getting students interested in PE courses. “The biggest wish of a teacher is to help students enjoy his or her class, which would make both students and the teacher happy,” he said with a bright smile.

Yu-Shao Guo, a sociology major who has been taking Lee’s adaptive PE class since freshman year, has suffered from the disability to fully spread fingers or make a fist. Fortunately, through the special devices designed by Lee that facilitate the spinning and hitting of ping pong balls, Guo is now able to have fun in the PE class and ignite passion in sports.

Yu-Jun Xiao, an English major, sees Lee as an usher to adaptive sports as well as a mentor in his life, whom he can talk to when he feels troubled or worried. Xiao said with a whiff of embarrassment that he always pours all his thoughts and feelings to Lee, who would always analyze his problems patiently and lead him to positive thinking.

All the students participating in Lee’s video felt delighted with its winning a prize and they were also grateful for Lee’s infinite love to the physically and mentally challenged students.
