Full Title: CALR Linguistics Journal

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Call Deadline: 16-Aug-2010

The Centre for Applied Linguistics Research CALR is pleased to announce call for papers for an upcoming special issue of CALR online journal on
New Pedagogic Orientations in ELT: local issues and global trends.

Call for papers

English language teaching has always been the centre of much debate in local as well as global arenas. New orientations to English language teaching have been prone to political interpretations as well as sensitive to challenges posed by cultural and pedagogical issues and problems. CALR special issue on New Pedagogical Orientations in ELT aims to explore local and global influences on the profession, and specifically economic globalization and instrumental inevitability. However, explicit and implicit objectives and deliverables, cultural obstacles, ideological and professional division, and control for quality standards remain at the heart of the consideration.

The main themes include, but are not limited to:
Theoretical grounding and structuralist orientations
Comparative applications in bilingual contexts
Functionalistic trends
Language Acquisition
English Linguistics
Pedagogy & Didactics
Classroom Technology
Design of Learning Systems
Classroom & Teaching Strategies
Methods of Evaluation
Multilingual Contexts of ELT
