China Institute welcomes Chinese Language Teachers to join us on Friday, February 26, for a professional development workshop held in collaboration with the 14th Factory Foundation. This workshop is an opportunity for K-12 educators to deepen their experience of contemporary Chinese art in a new and an exciting way, and bring that knowledge to the classroom.
The 14th Factory (http://www.the14thfactory.com/)will introduce participants to its conception of contemporary art and its upcoming exhibition at 23 Wall Street in April. The workshop will feature a lesson plan designed to stimulate students’ imagination based on an artistic work, followed by dinner. By inviting participants actively engage with the works of art exhibited, the workshop will help participants explore themes of universal interconnectedness through the contemporary artistic works with culturally layered meanings.
All participants will receive a professional development certificate jointly issued by NYS Language RBE-RN at NYU and China Institute upon successful completion of the course.
