The Department of Asian Studies has established a program of Language Fellows in Chinese. The Language Fellows acquire training and experience in language instruction while team-teaching language courses with regular faculty. The fellowships, which began in 1999, are funded through the James A. Linen III Asian Studies Fund.
Candidates for Chinese Language Teaching Fellowships would normally be graduate students in Linguistics, East Asian Language Pedagogy, or Foreign Language Education who are preparing for careers as college-level language instructors. They should possess substantial prior training in language teaching and, ordinarily, will have at least some experience in teaching Chinese.
Fellows teach under the close supervision of the regular faculty, who frequently observe them in class and meet with them to discuss class activities as well as the students’ and fellow’s performance.
