Implications for policy, teaching, and research

26-28 November 2009
Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines

Educators today face the challenge of teaching learners who need different Englishes for diverse purposes, all while English and  its uses are also changing. These changes raise new questions for policy, teaching and research. How should governments and  educational    systems respond?  In what ways should classrooms change? What kinds  of   research are needed given these new realities?  Gathering those    involved in language education in the Asia-Pacific, the conference    provides a venue for the discussion of these issues from a variety of    perspectives and for stimulating new work in these areas.

PLENARY SPEAKERS include
*        Dr. Ahmar Mahboob, University of Sydney, Australia
*        Dr. Brian Morgan, York University, Canada
*        Dr. Patricia B. Licuanan, Miriam College, Philippines
