National Press Club Mention

The Confucius Institute at La Trobe University receives National Press Club mention: The Confucius Institute at La Trobe University was referenced in Former Minister Bill Shorten's address to the National Press Club on 20 August 2013. In outlining the Labor Party's education reforms and its focus on teacher quality to positively influence student engagement and achievement, the Minister announced that, if re-elected, a Labor government would also provide new funding for initiatives supporting innovation in teaching. To illustrate this point, the Minister referenced the Chinese language program at Charles La Trobe College which is not only taught by a teacher sourced through the Improving Teacher Quality National Partnership, but where teaching quality is also supported through collaboration with the Confucius Institute at La Trobe University. The mention occurs around the 25:00 minute mark: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-20/national-press-club-bill-shorten/4900586
