Abstract/摘要:

Rapid technology advances have brought about a new generation of web-facilitated foreign language instruction. Given the increasing popularity of blended instructional models due to enhanced CMS support in higher education, the L2 Chinese language teaching field needs to update itself. The field must seek effective multimedia pedagogy and approaches to blended and online courses as well as instructional modalities. This article discusses current practices of language instruction and technology upgrades, and the impact of these trends in online education of the L2 Chinese language. The author proposes that tools be developed to support Chinese language-specific needs and that these tools be pedagogically and systematically built into the instructional structure to optimize online learning environments for Chinese language learners.

现代技术的发展使外语教学进入了升级换代的新时期。随着高校教学管理平台的强化,网络辅助式下的各种教学模式迅速发展。因此L2中文教学界也需要做出相应的调整,探索新的网络多媒体教学模式、以及混合式、网授式的教学模式。本文讨论现阶段网络环境下的教学方式和技术的更新,课程网络化的趋势及其对中文教学的影响。作者提出优化中文教学的设想:整合网络教学资源及针对中文教学难点的工具,并将相应的工具和技术支援合理地、有系统性地纳入教学程序,以促进各种网络环境下的中文教学。
