06 May ONLINE AP Chinese Summer Institute
AP Chinese will launch a new curricular framework this fall and the course audit process requires new insights for rigorous syllabus writing and design.
Please consider attending an ONLINE AP Chinese Summer Institute led by Professor Miao-fen Tseng (曾妙芬老师) this July to keep abreast of the newest development of course and exam and engage in in-depth discussions about practical takeaways. A new curricular framework is officially launched this coming fall, and the course audit process requires new insights for rigorous syllabus writing and design. Using authentic materials to create authentic tasks and assessments is essential for the success of course as printed textbooks are becoming marginal and supplementary. The institute is completely ONLINE. Learners will benefit from a combination of synchronous and asynchronous sessions featuring highly interactive and engaging training modules. Be reassured that participating in Tseng Laoshi’s ONLINE AP Chinese summer institute will be a refreshing experience for you to envision how interactive and effective an online course could be. Pre-AP Chinese language teachers are also welcome to attend.
