The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) funded by the Freeman Foundation, is a multi-year initiative to encourage and facilitate teaching and learning about East Asia in elementary and secondary schools nationwide. NCTA is a premier provider of professional development on East Asia. We also further the University's mission by providing programs that are open to the University community and the community at large.


NCTA provides content rich professional development programs for K-12 educators and pre-service teachers in all fields. This includes face-to-face college level seminars, online courses, workshops, book groups, webinars, and among other opportunities. We also connect teachers with a variety of high quality online resources for teaching about East Asia.
