Creating Audio-visual Multimedia Learning Materials


Did you have difficulty in engaging students to improve listening skills of Chinese?


Have you thought about using technology to assist your teaching of audio-visual Chinese?


Did you wonder how to integrate pictures with sounds to develop audio-visual materials?


Do you want to learn PowerPoint so as to produce teaching notes to be used in classroom?


If you answered YES to any of the above questions, you will find it interesting to attend the following workshop to be held (time) at China Institute.


Multimedia computer technology is starting to be used widely to support language teaching and learning. In order to effectively and also efficiently assist learners of Chinese with their listening comprehension, Chinese Language Teachers Association of Greater New York is initiating a project, which is to build up a data bank consisting of audio-visual materials, i.e., sounds and images. Topics of materials will range from transportation to entertainment, from restaurant to hotel, from cooking to wedding, anything that is part of Chinese culture or Chinese peopleís daily life. The end product of the project will be in the format of CDís, which can be shared by teachers of Chinese at different levels for their teaching purposes, or used by students directly to their own needs.


Under the current technology, sounds can be recorded into a computer; photos can be shot using a digital camera and then transferred into the computer in a minute. And Microsoft PowerPoint can easily integrate images with sounds through just a few clicks. We are going to run a workshop to demonstrate how to do these things from scratch. With the acquired technical skills, one can take pictures, record sounds, and mix the two together to produce interesting and useful audio-visual materials.  


The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Dongdong Chen, Assistant Professor and Director of Chinese Program at the Department of Asian Studies in Seton Hall University. Dr. Chen has developed a web-based Chinese-learning program for her students, and will coordinate this project in the development process.


The ultimate purpose of the workshop is to start a collaborative project of creating a data bank of multimedia audio-visual files that can be used by teachers of Chinese as supplemental teaching material. Running a project in such a scale needs support and commitment from people like you, the teachers of Chinese. We would like you to attend the workshop to learn the how-to, and then contribute your materials to the database. With our joint efforts, we can together establish this audio-visual data bank, make it grow, and render it a wonderful teaching tool.


If you are interested in participating, you are welcome to bring your laptop, photo images and a microphone to try your hands during the workshop.


Free, but advance registration is required. To register, please call 212-744-8181 ext. 142 or or fill out the following form.
