For this edited book project we are soliciting well-researched, practical investigations into language teaching and learning in Asia. This project follows our first two edited book projects, Innovating EFL Teaching in Asia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) and Exploring EFL Fluency in Asia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014). In it, we hope to showcase practical inquiries, with the working title of Re-envisioning Language Teaching & Learning in Asia. Each chapter will present original research concerning language learning and teaching, not necessarily classroom-based or focused around formal educational contexts. Finally, by the term ‘in Asia’ we are interested in studies concerned with the Asian context and the Asian diaspora, wherever located in light of the changing global landscape and patterns of global migration. Possible themes to be addressed include:

1. Approaches to developing student capabilities, such as: Teaching content through English using approaches such as: EMI, CLIL, CBI, and/or ESP, Active learning, including Task-based language teaching and learning (TBLT), project and/or problem-based learning (PBL)Skills-based teaching, including learner fluency, accuracy, and complexity
2. Approaches to promoting learner autonomy and life-long learning, such as: Self-directed learning, Motivation, agency, and identity, Self-access learning
3. Specific approaches to teaching that may be particularly relevant in a post-pandemic world, such as: Educational technology, CALL, Blended approaches
4. Investigations into teacher education, including pre-service and/or in-service training as well as continuing professional development (CPD)
5.Investigations into multilingualism, translanguaging/translingualism related to language teaching and learning
6. … and anything else we may have missed

Submission Process
We invite abstracts of 500 words (not including references) in text document format (doc, docx, or odt) as expressions of interest by no later than August 31, 2021 to Please also address inquiries to this address.

We will screen the submitted abstracts and notify authors of our decision by the end of September, 2021. We plan to request full papers of up to either 5,000 or 8,000 words (including references) to be submitted by the end of February 2022. In your abstract submission, please indicate whether you are submitting a practical paper of 5,000 words or a full paper of 8,000 words.

As we are interested in accessibility of scholarship to under-resourced communities, we are considering using an alternative publisher for this project, The International Teacher Development Institute (iTDi). iTDi is a provider of teacher development courses accessible to people throughout Asia.
