~Face-to-face and Online PD~
CLTASA is thrilled to introduce our 2023 EduStream PD program. This program offers two modes of learning: face-to-face and online, giving teachers, educators, and pre-service teachers the flexibility to choose the mode that best suits their communication and learning needs.
Our program is designed to provide vocational learning and training opportunities for all Chinese and pre-service teachers, empowering us to develop new teaching strategies, stay up-to-date with the latest education trends, and enhance our classroom performance.
Led by experienced teachers, our engaging and interactive sessions offer practical tools, resources, and techniques that we can apply immediately in our classroom. With CLTASA EduStream, we can elevate our teaching skills, expand our knowledge, and meet our professional development requirements. The EduStream program is tailored to individual needs, allowing us to learn at our own pace, access resources at any time, and participate in face-to-face or online discussions with other educators.

TOPIC: Connecting Classroom Management and Formative Assessment for Effective Teaching课堂管理与形成性评量的连结与应用
PRESENTER: Ms. Jessy Tu
Effective classroom management goes beyond just the teacher's management skills, as it is crucial for classroom activities to enhance students' motivation and learning outcomes. Students should find the class interesting and meaningful. Teaching methods and assessments should be closely linked, and formative assessments should consider the differences in students' backgrounds, abilities, and interests. Scaffolding activities for weaker students and extension activities for stronger students can enable differentiated teaching.
Ms. Jessy Tu is an experienced Chinese teacher in international schools who has taught in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand. She is the author of "Jessy Teacher's Chinese Reading Series," and "Chinese as a Second/ Additional Language Teaching Station Vol.1 & 2," as well as contributing to the textbook "Amazing Chinese." Ms. Tu established and writes for the WeChat public account "Jessy Teacher's Station" and has been invited to lead workshops for an extended period.
成功的课堂管理不只是老师的管理技巧，更重要的是课堂的活动能够有效提升学生的学习动机与效果。学生必须觉得老师上课是有趣的，学习是有意义的。老师的教学法与评估是紧密结合的，老师进行形成性评估时如果能考虑到班级里各种不同背景、能力、兴趣的学生的差异性，配合对程度较弱的学生做的鹰架与对能力较强的学生做的延展活动设计，就能做到分层教学设计。跟着涂老师现场实际操作，感受学生的学习体验，一定能有效改变您的教学！国际学校资深汉语老师，结合澳、港、新、泰多国教学经验，执笔微信公众号《Jessy 老师加油站》，著有《Jessy老师汉语读本系列》、《Jessy 老师国际汉语加油站1 &2 册》并参与教材编写《中文真棒》。长期受邀担任workshop leader。

TOPIC: How to use AIM in primary school classrooms to help children learn picture books
PRESENTER: Shelby Baker (邓雯), St Peter's College Junior School
Practical teaching methods must be combined with our own teaching environment and adapted to local conditions. This lecture will introduce in stages how I integrate AIM into the teaching of the Chinese picture book "Dumpling & Tangyuan", to help the second language and the near-native language learners to maximize the learning effect of Chinese listening, speaking, reading and writing. I will also share some learning and practical experience about TPRS.
