2015年3月28日，在华州孔子学院和华大杰克逊国际关系学院东亚中心的大力支持下，华州中文教师学会在华大成功举办了《任务型教学主题》的讲座。本次讲座有幸请到了佛吉尼亚大学世界语研究所的曾妙芬主任。曾教授既由浅入深地介绍了任务型教学的理论知识，又提供了诸多教学实例。她分享的评分标准和评分方式更是因实用性大获与会者的称赞。下午讲座中的分组讨论环节也让老师们有了互相学习的机会。华州中文教师学会为本次讲座增加了抽奖活动，奖品除了精美的文化礼品和教学用具外，还有曾教授的第三本著作，由北京语言大学出版社北美分社出版的《The Handbook of Tasks and Rubrics for Teaching Mandarin Chinese (Volume I)》。华州中文教师学会还贴心地为老师们准备了免费的教材、挂图、课外阅读、音响制品等。本次讲座，华州孔院不仅提供了经费资助，而且院长王雯秋女士和新到任的周军院长都亲自出席并发言。老师们在收获颇丰之余，还获得了OSPI颁发的Clock Hours。
