Promoting the use of technology in Chinese language learning and instruction

TCLT Forum (Mailing List)

(Last updated: 2009-08-20)

1. About the forum

To promote technology-based Chinese language teaching and CALL research in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, the TCLT Committee decided at the 5th International Conference and Workshops on Technology and Chinese Language Teaching in the 21st Century (held at University of Macau, June 6-8, 2008) to set up a mailing list for Chinese language teachers, students, and TCSL researchers to share new ideas, introduce new software and application techniques, announce relevant publications and conferences, and communicate with each other. The TCLT Committee hopes that the mailing list will enhance communications on technology-based Chinese language teaching by serving as a central distribution point for information and discussion and helping speed up the process in bridging the gap among  technology, research and curriculum and pedagogy.

The list server is located at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Murfreesboro, TN, USA and supported by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at MTSU and Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, Hamilton College, Clinton, NY, USA. The list is a moderated list server. Editing is done by Jun Da, Middle Tennessee State University and De Bao Xu, Hamilton College.
