Special Issue:

'English Language Teacher Education and Development: Issues and
Perspectives in Asia'

Guest Editor: Eva Bernat

The Asian EFL Journal is one of the world's leading refereed and indexed
journals in the field of teaching and learning English. It provides a
unique and major forum devoted to discussions on English as an
International Language research and development. The journal plans to
publish a Special Issue on English Language Teacher Education and
Development in September, 2010. The aim is to provide a variety of
perspectives on matters related to language teacher education and
professional development in the Asian context.

The global spread of English has resulted in increasing diversity and
development in the field of language teaching and, by extension, in
language teacher education. By bringing together research, theory and best
practices from a variety of contexts, this special issue aims to contribute
to building meaningful professional dialogue among language educators,
curriculum planners, and policy makers within Asia and beyond.

Authors are encouraged to submit proposed manuscripts that are
theoretically sound and oriented towards practical aspects of teacher
education and development. The deadline for submissions is 30th May, 2009.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- Emergent approaches and theories in language teacher education
- Design, development and evaluation of ELT teacher education programs
- Action research in language teacher education and language teaching
- Issues in ongoing teacher training and professional development (e.g.
performance appraisal, supervision, mentoring, etc.)
- Exploration of current issues in language teacher employment (e.g.
native/non-native bias, work ethics, standards, policies and agendas, etc.)

We welcome papers from all corners of the globe, but preference will be
given to those with links to the Asian context, including Australasia and
the Middle East. Manuscripts should not have been submitted for
consideration or published elsewhere, and should report on original
research, or present an original framework related to previous research,
theory and/or practice.
Manuscripts and biographical details should be sent via email attachment to:

Dr Eva Bernat
Department of Linguistics
Division of Linguistics & Psychology
Macquarie University, Sydney

Email: eva.bernatling.mq.edu.au

* Please note that manuscripts will be subject to an anonymous review by a
panel of experts. Selection at this stage does not guarantee publication.
