Revisiting ELT Practices in Multicultural Contexts

The conference theme is Revisiting ELT Practices in Multicultural Contexts: Evidence-Based Practices. The conference strives to promote the idea that as ELT practices are situated in multicultural settings, English teachers and teacher educators will need to re-appropriate or revisit their ELT practices at curricular, pedagogical, and assessment levels. This is because learners with different sociocultural and linguistic backgrounds have a different motivation to learn English as a foreign language (EFL), English as an additional language (EAL), English as an international language (EIL), or English as a lingua franca (ELF). This different learning orientation challenges TESOL practitioners and teacher educators to re-think or question what best ELT practices mean to learners of English and in what ways such practices help learners become autonomous learners of English and competent users of English.
