International Journal of Chinese Language Teaching

International Journal of Chinese Language Teaching (IJCLT) is a fully peer-reviewed international journal published by Clifford Publishing, an imprint of Clifford Media International. It publishes biannually both original empirical research and systematic review studies on teaching and learning Chinese as a first and foreign language at all education levels. The journal accepts submissions written in English or Chinese.

The journal welcomes contributions in the following areas, but not limited to: Chinese linguistics; processing of Chinese as a first and second language; translation and interpreting studies; curriculum design and development; teaching methodology; teacher professional development; language and culture; language and society; language testing and evaluation; language planning and policy; multilingualism and multilingual education; information technology and language education.

Special Issue: Technology-Enhanced Chinese Language Education

Guest Editor: Xiaoping Gao, University of Wollongong, Australia

Technology is nearly entrenched in every language teaching-learning cycle in the current digital era. Since the late 20 century, Technology-enhanced Language Learning (TELL) or Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) has gradually gained popularity (e.g., Chapelle, 1994, 2007, 2009; Chapelle & Sauro, 2017; Salaberry, 1999). Arguably, Technology-Enhanced Teaching and Learning has become one of the fastest-growing research areas in applied linguistics and language education by drawing on cross-disciplinary work from educational technology, language pedagogy, instructional design, computational linguistics, and psychology. The rapid evolution of communication technologies has changed language pedagogy and learning, enabling new ways and strategies to boost participation and learning in broader communities. Recent years have witnessed an exponential increase in cutting-edge technologies in L2 instruction. During the COVID-19 global pandemic, online and hybrid learning have become the major teaching and learning mode (UNESCO, 2021), leading to unprecedented technologic revolution. Education sectors’ rapid responses to the pandemic have evidenced that technology is key to bringing transformative changes in future education. In International Chinese Education, language educators have promptly integrated all sorts of modern technologies into L2 Chinese education to cope with the challenges encountered in teaching the language, sustain teaching and learning quality, and enhance learning outcomes. However, relevant scholarly research on pedagogic practices and their contributions to theoretical development remain scarce and therefore deserve further exploration.  


Aims and Scope

This special issue aims to showcase technological innovations and associated pedagogic applications in the practice of teaching Chinese as a second/foreign language (L2). Technology is here used in its broad sense. It refers either to technological contexts or environments where teaching and learning occur (e.g., online delivery platforms or micro-credentials) or to the digital tools or resources that mediate and facilitate teaching and learning. We welcome four types of articles (i.e., empirical studies, brief reports, critical reviews, and commentaries) that address issues falling within the following themes (but not limited to): 

1) Language educational technology: exploration and innovation 

2) Technology-assisted language instruction: implementation and impacts

3) Curriculum development: technology-related strategies and resources

4) Technology-assisted assessment: design and processes 

5) Technologies in contexts: overview, review, and future directions

6) Professional development: technology-related language policies and teacher education

在当今数字时代,科技几乎已贯穿于语言教学的方方面面。科技或计算机辅助的语言学习自上世纪末起逐渐盛行 (Chapelle, 1994,2007,2009; Chapelle & Sauro, 2017; Salaberry, 1999, 2000),在兼容跨学科研究成果(教育科技、语言教学法、课程设置、计算语言学、心理学)的基础上,科技引领的教学已成为应用语言学及语言教育中发展最快的研究领域之一。传媒科技的迅猛发展改变了语言教学的方法及现状,催生了大量提升参与度及学习效果的新方法、新策略。近年来,创新科技在二语教育中的应用激增,成果有目共睹。尤其在新冠疫情期间,线上及混合式教学成为全球教学模式的主流 (UNESCO, 2021), 掀起了一场史无前例的教育革命。教育界对疫情的迅速反应足以证明科技是引领未来教育变革的关键要素。在国际中文教育领域,语言教师也迅速采用了各种创新科技手段来应对教学挑战,尝试提高教学质量与效果。然而,报告相关教学实践、探讨其理论意义及贡献的学术研究还相当匮乏,因此值得进一步探讨。
