The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA)
In 1998, The East Asia Resource Center joined forces with Columbia University, the Five College Center for East Asian Studies, Indiana University, and the University of Colorado to create The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA). NCTA’s goal was then, and remains today, “to encourage and facilitate teaching and learning about East Asia in elementary and secondary schools nationwide.”
Since 1998, NCTA has expanded to include the following six institutions (plus EARC), some of which offer programs that are open to educators nationwide. These may include online courses, summer residential programs, and study tours to Asia. To receive timely notification of these programs, please subscribe to each institution’s mailing list individually.
NCTA is generously funded by the Freeman Foundation.
