Dr. David Wen receives Academic Innovation AwardApril 25, 2022
Dr. Wen was recognized for his “Creativity-Based Language Teaching” method. Incorporating the latest research findings from second language studies and learning sciences, this method promotes the creative use of the target language as the goal of learning. Learning a second language in this way leads to integrated and dynamic knowledge of the language, which is easy to apply to new contexts. Applying this method in his Chinese language teaching, he is able to offer students a whole new experience and help them build strong skills in Chinese.
