4th Chinese Innovation Forum

October 6, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Building and Sustaining Communities

Date: Saturday, October 06, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Location: Chinese American International School (888 Turk Street, San Francisco, CA 94102)

REGISTER HERE by September 15 – Fee: $40

While there has been tremendous growth in Chinese language programs over the past two decades, with the slowing of interest in Chinese and language learning in general, we now find ourselves at a crossroads. How do we continue to build our programs? How can teachers convince administrators not to cut our programs? How can we sustain student interest in learning Chinese for the long term with innovative pedagogical approaches? How can we leverage online and digital tools to create learning communities without boundaries?

This year’s forum seeks to build capacity amongst our communities to collaborate on these topics, and to build networks on working on innovation in these areas. Our format will be a little different than in past years – we wish to have presenters highlight their work in innovating Chinese pedagogy, program growth and sustenance, community building and uses of technology, and immediately follow up with a round-table discussion with participants to identify goals and areas for continued work. This work will continue into the future, beyond the day’s activity for Forum, sharing via the Chinese Innovation Forum website.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Ying Jin, Cupertino High School – 2018 ACTFL Teacher of the Year
  • Dr. Claudia Ross, College of the Holy Cross – “Read on” STARTALK Program Director
