Meeting Description:

In this seminar, we aim to give a Mediterranean Perspective on the English language education policies, i.e., formal educational guidelines and orientations in the form of published curricula and teacher education documents, as well as practice, i.e., procedures related to teaching, learning, assessment and testing routines that spring from everyday classroom experience. We endeavor to elicit informed input from as many regions in the broader Mediterranean territory as possible, in the hope that we can draw conclusions about shared, or at least comparable, policies and practices regarding ESOL (English for speakers of other languages). We also give a historical account of the development of English language teaching policies and illustrate the current practices through the examples of empirical studies conducted in the field. Although the research context is Mediterranean countries, we claim that the findings are not confined to these cultural settings only. We believe, the issues discussed and presented in the seminar have important implications for similar ESOL contexts in the world.

Call for Papers:

If you are interested in taking part in the seminar, please contact one of the seminar organizers via email and send your abstract before the deadline for abstract submission for ESSE 2012, that is, 31 January 2012.

We are looking forward to receiving your abstracts.
