To promote the use of technology in Chinese language learning and instruction, Hamilton College in the US initiated the International Conference and Workshops on Technology and Chinese Language Teaching (TCLT) in 2000. The conference series is a biennial event, which has been co-hosted by institutions such as Yale University, Columbia University, University of Macau, and most recently Taiwan Normal University in both the US and abroad. The combination of in-depth panel discussions and hands-on workshops on up-to-date technologies on Chinese language teaching is a hallmark of this biennial conference. Information about past conferences can be found at:
TCLT is derived from the phrase ‘Technology and Chinese Language Teaching’. When the acronym is used by itself in different contexts, it refers to either the International Conference and Workshops on Technology and Chinese Language Teaching or the Standing Committee which is responsible for organizing the conference. TCLT’s official website is at http://www.tclt.us.
To further the exchange and discussions on technology and Chinese language teaching, TCLT launched the double blind, peer-reviewed online publication Journal of Technology and Chinese Language Teaching (JTCLT) in 2010 and published in-print supplement Series of Technology and Chinese Language Teaching in the U.S. (《美国科技与中文教学丛书》) with China Social Sciences Press (中国社会科学出版社) since 2012.
