Event description


Workshop Descriptor:

This workshop is designed for Chinese teachers who teach Chinese as an additional language to non-native speakers. Teaching Chinese as an additional language requires an understanding of different students, different language profiles and different settings. It is our challenge to design an inquired –based and conceptual driven Chinese curriculum, and to implement into our classroom. We will inquire into this area in this workshop by hands on activities, professional readings and discussions.

本此培会是针对学校的汉语设计的。在学校里把汉语附加言来组织教学就意味着我的学生的背景不同了,学生的经验不同了,学校的配套也不同了。 怎么样把我们的课程设计成以探究为本,概念驱动教学的模式是困惑着我们的问题。在本次培会中,我会以个问题探究的方向,透过实际的操作,专业阅读及与会者之讨论助参加的老建构自己的理解,掌握一些方法来更有效地行教与学。

Participants will:

Develop a perspective on what is inquiry in learning Chinese as a foreign language


Understand of how to design and implement inquiry-based and conceptual understanding in Chinese classroom

理解与运用 中文程的探究教与学

Develop strategies for effective teaching in Chinese that promote inquiry


Develop a network of peers through ongoing discussions, collaboration and reflection



G1-8 Chinese/Mandarin teachers

What to Bring:

Your Growth mindset 性思

Your questions 讨问题

Your Laptops 电脑

Your inquiry based practice 探究教学
