About TCLT

Established in 2000, Technology and Chinese Language Teaching ( aims to bridge the gap between technology and teaching methodology and curriculum as well as to enhance the exchange of technology-based Chinese language learning and instruction. 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. Over the past 15 years, more than 200 institutions from 17 countries and regions have sent over 1,000 professionals to join the conferences of TCLT.

To further the exchange and discussions on technology and Chinese language teaching, TCLT launched its double blind, peer-reviewed online publication Journal of Technology and Chinese Language Teaching 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.
