Edited by Paul Gunashekar, Amol Padwad, Daphne Pawelec
This volume is an anthology of some select presentations made at the first international conference of English language teacher educators on the theme Starting, Stimulating and Sustaining English Language Teacher Education and Development held at Hyderabad, India on 22 - 24 January 2011.
The collection includes papers that have emerged from serious research, presentations founded on experiences in the training classroom, and teacher development workshops based on ideas and techniques that work. The twenty-one contributions represent a broad spectrum of issues that are of concern to the teacher educator including Continuing Professional Development (CPD), teaching English in economically and linguistically impoverished contexts, the interface between theory and practice, the interdependence of teaching and research, curriculum and materials development, the influence of proficiency training on professional performance, innovations in the training classrooms, and using technology in the language classroom.
