       本期主讲嘉宾共三位,夏威夷大学的任友梅教授主讲教学活动设计与课堂管理,教材的使用与语料的处理;北京师范大学朱志平教授主讲意义教学,结合句型、语法、语音、汉字的教学实例,提出教学内容的设计以话题为中心,教学材料的选取以句型为中心,课堂教学以活动为中心,引导学员围绕这“三中心原则”有效开展汉语教学。这两位教授既是汉语一线教师,又有着多年的研究积累,特别是在教材编著方面颇有建树。压轴嘉宾为前教育参赞邵巍先生,他主讲的话题是汉语成语与中国文化。邵巍先生中西贯通、学识渊博,讲座生动、风趣幽默。

       本期培训共有39名学员注册报名,除了旧金山湾区本地学员外,还有4名来自北卡、德州等外州的学员慕名前来。本次培训,历时一周,学员普遍反映讲座内容信息量大,极富指导性和启发性,同时,课堂上传授的很多具体方法,也有很强的可操作性,马上就可以应用到自己的课堂教学中去。谢家新院长和吴成年院长对学员们的反馈表示感谢,并承诺,只要是老师们喜欢的,孔院一定继续坚持做下去,越做越好。

       结业式由徐正龙老师主持,吴彦伯副校长及杨军参赞为学员颁发培训结业证书,共有29名全程参与的学员获得了培训证书。学员们非常珍惜这样的培训机会,感谢孔院为大家提供这么好的平台,既提高了个人的能力,同时,学员还自发建立孔院教师培训微信群,希望可以加强联系,共同提高,并期待明年继续来参与培训。

        本届培训是由孔子学院总部批准,与北师大密切合作,理论研习与教学方法相结合,最受本地中文教师欢迎的培训项目;旧金山州大孔院总结以往培训经验,精心设计,认真筹备,达到预期目的。
