TESL-EJ Special Issue Second Language Teacher Education (to appear November 2018)
Guest Editor: Thomas S.C. Farrell
Call For Papers: Second Language Teacher Education
As a relatively new and growing profession, second language teacher education (SLTE) has evolved over the past few decades. Indeed, SLTE has taken on a more global perspective and the knowledge base of SLTE has greatly expanded to include such topics as teacher cognition, teacher identity, reflective practice, teacher research, narratives and teacher self-development, teacher expertise, teacher emotions, teacher immunity to name but a few. For language teachers, SLTE serves as a bridge to what is known in the field with what is recommended that teachers implement in the classroom and as one scholar has recently noted, it does this through the people we educate as second language teachers.
This Special Issue on second language teacher education (SLTE) seeks research papers on any aspect of SLTE that are original and cover second language teacher education and or development from the teacher educator perspective and/or from the preservice or inservice teacher perspective.
Proposals in the form of a 300-500 word abstract are due no later than February 1, to Thomas S.C. Farrell, Applied Linguistics Dept, Brock University, Canada ([email protected]) by e-mail attachment in MS Word format. Successful proposals will describe original data driven research, either quantitative or qualitative, with a rationale for the research and with specific research questions posed and a clearly described design for data collection and analysis.
