Teaching Seminar of CIAAMU
 
 
              Recently, Confucius Institute at Alabama A & M UniversityCIAAMU held the first seminar on Chinese language teaching among the teachers of CIAAMU. This seminar was set to do the job well in teaching Chinese language in America, to uphold the quality of Chinese language teaching, at the same time to direct the new Chinese teachers and Chinese Volunteer teachers who are expected to quickly adapt to the new teaching environment, new teaching requirements and new teaching methods. All the teachers of CIAAMU attended this seminar. Mr. Dongrong Shi, Chinese Director of Confucius Institute at AAMU chaired this seminar and Dr. Xueqin Liu, Chinese language teacher was invited as a keynote speaker.
          The theme of this first seminar was "How to master the principles and techniques in overseas Chinese language teaching", covering principles and techniques of overseas Chinese language teaching, teaching method and practice, textbooks selecting , course design and teaching experience as well.            
         Dr. Liu, as a keynote speaker, delivered a talk about the principles and techniques in overseas Chinese language teaching, together with her one year of experience in teaching Chinese language, she shared with everyone her teaching concept, modern teaching materials, innovated teaching methods and novel course design, which deeply impressed all the participants in this teaching seminar. With an ultimate purpose and joint efforts, we are expecting to improve the quality and levels of Chinese language teaching abroad.
        Although this seminar was not very long, there is a "fast track" in effect. Many teachers still felt something more to say after this meeting. All they say they learned a lot from this seminar especially the teaching skills and all hope there will be more such kind of seminars in the future.
        The seminar reached its goal. The seminar shows the present achievements and levels of Chinese language teaching of CIAAMU.  More importantly, this seminar is surely to generate radiation impact on the future of Chinese language teaching. All the Chinese language teachers will be encouraged to practice Chinese language teaching creatively and to make Chinese teaching and Chinese culture promotion a new height.
