About this book

This book explores language teacher development in computer-assisted language learning (CALL) environments and discusses approaches, tasks and resources that can guide language teachers to develop their skills and strategies for technology-enhanced language teaching (TELT). It looks at key aspects of CALL in terms of pedagogy and technology and proposes a model of CALL teacher development, which incorporates essential elements of teacher learning in CALL. Further, the author presents practical tasks and tips on how to develop knowledge and skills for the use of digital technologies in language teaching and suggests ideas to improve language teacher training and development.

Reviews

“Teacher Development in Technology-Enhanced Language Teaching is a well-crafted book with a strong base in theory and research informing a rich collection of practical options for those navigating the complex world of language teacher education for the 21st century.”  (Philip Hubbard, Stanford University, USA) 

“Teacher Development in Technology-Enhanced Language Teaching is an extremely practical and readable addition to the literature into developing teacher skills with technology in language teaching and learning. The author’s experience in guiding teachers to be more effective in using technology is evident throughout, and the practical tips founded on relevant research are invaluable to teachers regardless of how little or how much experience they have with technology in their teaching and learning contexts.”  (Glenn Stockwell, Waseda University, Japan )

“This is a book that looks at educating teachers in the use of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) from a novel and interesting perspective. The contents are based on a thorough familiarity with research into teacher development for CALL, combined with interesting, down-to-earth tasks for practice in, and reflection on, the use of technology for language learning. The list of resources of various kinds is reason enough in itself for readers from a wide variety of backgrounds to buy the book, which should feature on a reading list for any training course for language teachers.”  (Scott Windeatt, Newcastle University, UK)
