In spite of widespread recognition of the importance of English as a foreign language, and continued intensive research into English teaching and learning in this environment, there is a feeling in many quarters that EFL pedagogy has stagnated in some aspects. Few new theoretical approaches have emerged in recent years to challenge the dominant communicative paradigm, and while computer assisted language learning has become an established part of most English programs, it has not brought about the revolution in classroom practice that some early enthusiasts predicted.
This year’s Chia Nan University International Conference on English Teaching and Learning challenges teachers and researchers to step outside of the mainstream and, like our keynote speaker Dr. Holly Wilson of Alliant International University, share ideas about teaching English that reflect changing student profiles, changing socio-political landscapes, changing environments, changing technologies and changing lifestyles.
