As of August 2021, Andrea Révész (University of London) will succeed Kris Van den Branden (KU Leuven), as one of the editors of the book series Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT).

Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) is an educational framework for the theory and practice of teaching second or foreign languages. It is based on a constellation of ideas issuing from philosophy of education, theories of second language acquisition, empirical findings on effective instructional techniques, and the exigencies of language learning in contemporary society. Though there is broad interest in the potential value of TBLT to foster worthwhile language teaching and learning, there is also considerable diversity in the theoretical scope, applied practice, and research that corresponds with the TBLT name.

In concert with current interest in Task-Based Language Teaching, this book series is devoted to the dissemination of TBLT issues and practices, and to fostering improved understanding and communication across the various clines of TBLT work. As series editors, we seek to publish cutting-edge work that defines and advances the domain. Empirical research, theoretical discourse, and well-informed practical applications of TBLT constitute the core features highlighted in the series. We welcome edited as well as authored volumes, and we invite submissions related to the full diversity of language education contexts, including bi- and multi-lingual, heritage, second, foreign, child, and adult language learning.

The targeted audiences for this series include students, scholars, practitioners, and policy makers around the globe. Key among these are:

1. University undergraduate and graduate students engaged in courses of study related to language teaching, applied linguistics, second language studies, second language acquisition, and other fields.

2. Academics conducting research and teaching on TBLT, language pedagogy, second language acquisition, and related disciplines.

3. Educators and policy makers concerned with work at the interface between instructional practice and the value of language learning in schools and for the benefit of individuals and society.
