The Future of Chinese Language Teaching and Learning
In line with our commitment to advancing the field, we have chosen a theme that reflects the evolving landscape of Chinese language education. The conference aims to provide a dynamic platform for colleagues to delve into discussions surrounding two critical influences on the future of our field:
Generative AI Technology: Explore the rapid advancements and applications of generative AI technology in Chinese language teaching and learning.
US-China Relations: Examine the recent turbulent changes in US-China relations and their implications for Chinese language education.
We encourage proposals that investigate the impact of these technological and political developments on various aspects of Chinese teaching and learning. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
Chinese linguistics and pedagogical grammar
Second language acquisition
Proficiency- and/or performance-based assessments
Thematic unit lesson planning
Reading and writing literacy development
Teaching Professional Chinese
Teaching heritage students
Classroom management strategies
Your insights and expertise will contribute to the richness of our discussions and help shape the future of Chinese language education. We look forward to receiving your proposals and welcoming you to this vibrant exchange of ideas at the 2024 CLTAC Spring Conference.
