Promoting successful and sustained Global Englishes curricular innovation
In this external seminar, Dr Nicola Galloway will aim to widen the debate on the need for change in English Language Teaching (ELT) practice.
In this seminar, Dr Nicola Galloway aims to widen the debate on the need for change in English Language Teaching (ELT) practice, outlining what a Global Englishes for Language Teaching (GELT) perspective entails.
She will discuss the results of an empirical study with pre- and in-service Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) practitioners on their attitudes towards incorporating a GELT perspective in their diverse ELT contexts. In doing so, she will highlight the various barriers to GELT (Galloway and Rose, 2015), and examine the process of implementing curriculum innovation as well as the factors that influence it.
The in-depth examination of the curriculum innovation process aims to increase the potential for successful and sustained GELT curriculum innovation.
