2012 Chinese Teacher Fall Workshop
Date: September 21-22, 2012
This year’s workshop was a success with over 75 teachers participating. The conference allowed the Chinese language teachers an opportunity to develop the skill set that they will certainly employ throughout their teaching career. In addition, this workshop served to develop a network/learning community among Indiana’s Chinese language educators and focused on developing practical teaching skills that was especially useful to teachers who are just beginning to teach in American schools.
