The 3rd Chinese Innovation Forum will be held on Oct. 7th, 2017 at University of Washington, Seattle, co-hosted by the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.
The mission of the Chinese Innovation Forum is to jumpstart and create a sustainable conversation of innovation for the field of Chinese Language Education. We seek to enlist 50 to 70 active participants to engage in a dialogue of innovation. Each teacher comes with an idea of an innovative activity design, teaching plan, props design, etc. with relation to this year’s themes: Interaction & Engagement. The showcase is in the format of Innovation Trade Fair in the afternoon session.
The 3rd Chinese Innovation Forum invites World leading experts of language education to the morning session:

The Afternoon session will be comprised of Chinese language-specific “innovation ideas-swap” Trade Fair, which can include ways of interaction, engagement methods, grammar instruction innovation, project innovation, tech innovation, character innovation, etc. By the end of the Innovation Trade Fair session, every table will have a showcase moment, and everyone will be able to provide feedback and reflective thoughts.
