This volume explores the defining element in the work of language
teacher educators: language itself. The book is in two parts. The
first part holds up to scrutiny concepts of language that underlie
much practice in language teacher education yet too frequently remain
under-examined. These include language as social institution, language
as verbal practice, language as reflexive practice, language as school
subject and language as medium of language learning. The chapters in
the second part are written by language teacher educators working in a
range of institutional contexts and on a variety of types of program
including both long and short courses, both pre-service and in-service
courses, and teacher education practice focusing variously on
metalinguistic awareness for teachers, language improvement, and
classroom communication. The unifying factor is that collectively they
illuminate how language teacher educators research their practice and
reflect on underlying principles.
