Conference Objectives and Goals

As have been requested by many institutions and individuals, we are happy to announce the Second Conference/Workshop on Technology and Chinese Language Teaching in the 21st Century, to be held June 7-9, 2002 at Yale University and co-sponsored by Yale University and Hamilton College. The first conference, held at Hamilton College in June, 2000, was a great success. It attracted more than 40 enthusiastic participants and promoted the use of multimedia in Chinese language teaching. The second conference, we believe, will yield the same fruitful result and provide another opportunity for colleagues in the Chinese teaching field to summarize and to share their research and work in the past two years. Along with the rapid development in technology and multimedia and more usage of them in Chinese language teaching, this conference/workshop attempts to help Chinese language instructors rethink their pedagogical approach and restructure their current curriculum while working with technology in their teaching.
It is expected to provide a platform and focus on achieving four missions:
The conference will devote one day and a half for panel presentations and demonstrations on various topics and one half day for workshop with two hands-on sessions.
