The Project for Developing Chinese Language Teachers (DCLT) of New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, funded by the Freeman Foundation, was established in 2007 to provide services and support to Chinese language teachers, schools and school districts, and students in NYU's degree programs for Chinese teachers. DCLT offers a series of "Friday Night Forums" providing practical professional development for pre- and in-service Chinese teachers; works in schools to mentor and support Chinese language teachers and programs; and conducts research into the successful ingredients of Chinese language programs and teachers. The goal of the project is to develop and support qualified, quality Chinese language teachers to meet the growing demand for K-12 Chinese Language Programs.. Learn More>
