Teachers' Training Programs at the Teachers College in Columbia University
The Center for International Foreign Language Teacher Education (CIFLTE) at Teachers College, Columbia University has two core missions: promoting top-notch teacher training activities and advancing classroom-based inquiries that would enhance the Center's teacher training activities. Currently, the Center offers three Chinese/English teacher training programs: a one-year program in TCSOL in New York and two overseas summer programs in TCSOL/TESOL, one in Macau and one in Osaka. The programs appeal to both pre- and in-service teachers who aspire to receiving systematic training in task-based language teaching (TBLT), a researched pedagogy that can help language learners develop a functional competence in using the target language.
