About TCLT
Established in 2000, Technology and Chinese Language Teaching (TCLT) (http://www.tclt.us/) aims to bridge the gap between technology and teaching methodology and curriculum as well as to enhance the exchange of technology-based Chinese language learning and instruction. The combination of in-depth panel discussions and hands-on workshops on up-to-date technologies on Chinese language teaching is a hallmark of this biennial conference. Information about past conferences can be found at:

To further the exchange and discussions on technology and Chinese language teaching, TCLT launched its double blind, peer-reviewed online publication Journal of Technology and Chinese Language Teaching in 2010 and published in-print supplement Series of Technology and Chinese Language Teaching in the U.S. (《美国科技与中文教学丛书》) with China Social Sciences Press (中国社会科学出版社) since 2012.
