“Teaching and Learning Second Languages as a Process of Discovery – Bridging Theories and Practices”
March 25, 2017
Emory University, United States
The Emory College Language Center (ECLC) and the Confucius Institute in Atlanta at Emory are very pleased to announce an international conference on second language acquisition in the K-16 classroom. The conference seeks to bring together foreign language educators from K-16 schools to discuss theories and practices in effectively guiding and motivating students to explore languages and cultures and develop their critical and creative thinking skills in the process. Participants will learn various pedagogical approaches to designing curriculums, instructional materials, and learning tasks. The conference will also examine how current research and new technologies have impacted the way foreign languages are taught and learned.
The Confucius Institute will hold the Spring Chinese Institute for Chinese teachers in conjunction with the conference through a special track dedicated to teaching Chinese as a foreign language. The conference invites proposals for presentations on all aspects of Chinese language instruction for students in the kindergarten through college in all types of schools. Panels in the general and Chinese tracks are open to all participants.
In collaboration with Emory Continuing Education, the conference organizers are pleased to award 0.5 Continuing Education units issued by Emory
