Summary

Questions about what to teach and how best to teach it are what drive professional practice in the English language classroom. Innovation and change in English language education addresses these key questions so that teachers are able to understand and manage change to organise teaching and learning more effectively.

The book provides an accessible introduction to current theory and research in innovation and change in ELT and shows how these understandings have been applied to the practical concerns of the curriculum and the classroom. In specially commissioned chapters written by experts in the field, the volume

  • sets out the key issues in innovation and change and shows how these relate to actual practice
  • offers a guide to innovation and change in key areas grounded in research
  • relates theory to practice through the use of illustrative case studies and examples
  • brings together the very best scholarship in TESOL and language education from around the world

This book will be of interest to upper undergraduate and graduate students in applied linguistics, language education and TESOL as well as pre-service and in-service teachers, teacher educators, researchers and administrators keen to create and manage teaching and learning more effectively.
