Event Description

Part of a free webinar series - Global Learning for Educators

Language teaching is fundamentally about much more than learning how to introduce oneself, chat about the weather, or ask what time it is. At its core, effective language teaching provides students with the necessary tools to recognize and apply patterns in language and culture, and creates a learning environment in which students are asked constantly to make meaning for themselves. The best language programs are more than mere classes within the walls of a school—they are jumping-off points for explorations in and beyond the target language that offer students the opportunity to interact and communicate across linguistic and cultural borders, and to develop a range of cognitive and academic skills that can be applied across subject areas. As such, they are the basis for all the learning that happens in schools that offer a global education.
 Through this lively session, understand the fundamental principles for creating language programs that embody this commitment to empowered, interactive, and inspired student learning.

Presenter: Chris Livaccari, Director, Education and Chinese Language Initiatives, Asia Society

Date: February 28, 2013
