In the situation we found ourselves in this year, the UCL IOE Confucius Institute 17th Annual Chinese Teaching Conference was unable to go ahead as planned at the UCL IOE, London. Undeterred, we took swift action to provide an online plenary and series of workshops led by experienced practitioners, that would have been part of our conference normally. We offered these completely for free, as a thank you to our community for all your hard work through this difficult time.
Below, we have gathered together the workshop and plenary presentations so that they can be referred to and used in your future Chinese language teaching. Whilst the materials will remain online, the video recordings will only be available to watch for a limited time (1st – 31st of July).
We hope you have enjoyed our online conference, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our London venue in 2021.
