Abstract/摘要:

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 pushed Chinese language instruction in Eastern European countries from in-person to online or remote instruction within a very short period of time. During this swift change to emergency remote teaching, an interesting research question emerged: how are instructional technology and digital resources used by Chinese language instructors in their in-person versus online oriented instruction. This paper reports the findings of a survey conducted at the end of November 2019 on the use of technology and digital resources by Chinese language instructors from various Confucius Institutes in Eastern European countries. The survey was intended to collect information to prepare for a teacher training program in summer 2020. Results from this survey provide a snapshot of the use of instructional technology in Chinese language teaching and instructors’ technical preparedness in Eastern European countries before the pandemic. Given the fact that the pandemic was not foreseen when the survey was conducted, its findings will hopefully provide meaningful references in future comparative studies on the effect of the use of instructional technology for Chinese language learning and instruction before and after the pandemic. It will also be helpful for developing teacher training programs on the use of instructional technology for Chinese language teaching in the future.

2020年初突发的新冠疫情迫使东欧各国的汉语课程在极短的时间内转为线上或远程教学。在这种从面授转为线上教学的“应急远程”教学中,一个值得研究的问题是在极短时间内从传统线下课堂切换到线上课堂之前,汉语教师们在日常教学中是怎样使用教育技术和数字化资源的。本文呈现的是一个在2019年11月底进行的关于教育技术和数字化教学资源在东欧国家汉语教学中应用情况的问卷调研,受访对象是任教于东欧10国孔子学院和孔子课堂的汉语教师、汉语教学志愿者、以及汉语教学机构的负责人,其目的为筹划2020年暑期针对这些汉语教师进行岗中培训做准备。本次调研结果部分呈现了疫情开始前东欧国家汉语教学中教育技术的使用情况和汉语教师技术准备情况。问卷完成时尚未预见到新冠疫情大爆发给各类教学的巨大冲击,希望本次疫情前的调研数据能对今后对比疫情前后教育技术在汉语教学中的应用成效以及将来的教师教育技术培训提供一定的参考依据。
