This symposium is an academic platform dedicated to promoting and advancing applications of interdisciplinary research on the pedagogy of East Asian languages. Chinese, Japanese and Korean are traditionally considered less commonly taught languages in the United States, yet the ever-expanding economic and geopolitical interests in the East Asian region and the growing enrollment in East Asian languages in K-16 education over the past decades have drawn increasing research and pedagogical attention to the teaching and learning of these languages.
This two-day symposium, a collaborative project between Oberlin College and The Ohio State University, will be held February 24-25, 2018, with keynote speeches, panel sessions, and a pedagogy workshop. It is supported by a Mellon Language Grant, the OSU Association for the Advancement of the Pedagogy of East Asian Languages (AAPEAL), and the OSU Graduate Students of East Asian Languages and Literatures (GREALL).
