Beginning in 2001, the USC Korean Language and Culture Project (KLCP), headed by Professor Namkil Kim, has hosted an annual Korean Teachers Training Workshop (KTTW) as part of an ongoing effort to increase interest in the teaching and learning of Korean in the United States. Sponsored by both the USC East Asian Studies Center and the USC Korean Studies Institute, the workshop is designed with the specific goals of providing effective teaching skills and encouraging teachers to develop a variety of teaching materials for their Korean classes.
This year, in addition to the 18th Annual KTTW, the USC KLCP will also be hosting the 7th USC-Yonsei University Joint Symposium, which will feature presentations from scholars working on research in language education and applied linguistics. The events will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 27-28, 2018. The USC-Yonsei University Joint Symposium will be held from 12:30-5:00 pm on Friday and continue from 9:00am- 12:30 pm on Saturday, while registration for the 18th Annual KTTW will begin from 1:00 pm on Saturday and the Workshops will start from 2:00 pm and last until 4:40 pm.
The theme of this year’s Symposium is “The Analysis of Grammatical Constructions of East Asian Languages for Language Acquisition and Pedagogy,” while the workshop will focus on the theme of “Effective Online Tools for Language Study.” We encourage all interested individuals to attend and participate.
