Co-sponsored with Hamilton College, the National Foreign Language Resource Center (NFLRC) and the National Resource Center East Asia (NRCEA) at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa are pleased to host the 7th International Conference and Workshops on Technology and Chinese Language Teaching in the 21st Century (TCLT7) from May 25 through 27, 2012 at the Hawai‘i Imin International Conference Center at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Initiated by Hamilton College in 2000, this biennial conference aims to bridge the gap between technology and teaching methodology and curriculum as well as to enhance the exchange on technology-based Chinese language learning and instruction. The combination of in-depth panel discussions and hands-on workshops on technology-enhanced Chinese language teaching is a hallmark of TCLT conferences, which have contributed a great deal to the field of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language. Over the past 11 years, about 200 institutions from 17 countries and regions have sent hundreds of professionals to join TCLT.

TCLT7 will place emphases on frontier research topics such as mobile learning, cloud technology, the digital classroom, and computational linguistics, as well as on general topics on the integration of technology in day-to-day usage. The program will include keynote speeches, paper presentations and panel discussions, hands-on workshops, computer program demonstration, and a technology-based educational product exhibition. Supported by more than 200 institutions worldwide, TCLT7 will bring together about 250 academics for discussion.
