52ND RELC INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, 13 - 15 March 2017, SINGAPORE
Dimensions of Language Education: Policy, Perspectives, Practice
In this modern era of rapid technological development and global competitiveness, change is the one constant factor affecting all dimensions of education, including language education. With English as the global language, education systems across Asia and worldwide have been making constant changes to ensure that their language planning and policies are in tune with the times. It is important that the teaching and learning of English in and beyond the classroom are keeping up with current trends in pedagogy and assessment.
As language education is multidimensional, this conference aims to bring into focus the dimensions of language planning and policy alongside current perspectives and practice in curriculum design, materials development, language pedagogy and assessment.
The organizers invite submissions of papers and workshops that approach the conference theme from any of the three P strands or dimensions:
- Planning and Policy in language education
- Perspectives in language teaching and learning
- Practice in pedagogy and assessment
