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.
