Professional Development Award for AATK Members
The Cheng & Tsui Professional Development Award offers financial assistance to Korean language teachers, especially those new to the field, for attending training workshops, seminars, conferences, and other local, national, or international in-service learning experiences. The award may also be used to collaborate with a mentor teacher. Teacher training workshops and seminars attended by the applicant should be focused on pedagogy and issues of teaching and learning. The fund has designated an annual amount of $1,000 to be divided between at least two teachers each year. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
