Korean Language Program: Conferences
The 13thAnnual Korean Teachers Training Workshop
Hosted by the USC Korean Language and Culture Project
Since 2001, the USC Korean Language and Culture Project (KLCP) has held an annual Korean Teachers Training Workshop (KTTW) as part of an effort to increase interest in the teaching and learning of Korean in the United States. Supported by the USC East Asian Studies Center's U.S Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant, the workshop is designed with the specific goals of providing effective teaching skills and encouraging teachers to develop a variety of teaching materials for their Korean classes. Most of the attendants are currently active in the field of Korean language education as either teachers or administrators at weekend Korean schools, middle and high schools, universities, and also Korean churches.
This year's workshop, themed “Project-Based Korean Language Education,” will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2013, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, and include two workshops. The first workshop, “Project-Based Learning and Teaching Methods,” aims to introduce effective teaching methods for incorporating projects into the language curriculum that are both planned and executed by students, while also involving students in project assessment. The workshop will also include a discussion of project-based teaching methods and real-world examples and results.
The second workshop, “Utilizing Video Projects in the Korean Classroom,” aims to build on the content covered in the first workshop in an effort to more concretely understand how to actually incorporate project-based activities into current Korean language curriculums. Using video projects as an example, each step of the process will be described in detail, including the various resources and requirements of each step.
To help further establish a community network among those engaged in teaching Korean at all levels and educational settings, while also reinforcing the current high level of interest in learning and teaching Korean in the Southern California area, we look forward to the active participation and lively discussion of all participants during the workshop.
