Time for Change: Developing English Language Teaching at Tertiary Level in Sudan
Edited by Ben Gray & Mark Krzanowski
Time for Change: Developing English Language Teaching (ELT) at Tertiary Level in Sudan is an edited collection of the papers presented at the ELT Conference with the same title in Khartoum, Sudan, from 1 to 3 March, 2010.
The event was organised by the British Council, the Association of Sudanese Teachers of English (ASTEL), Al-Neelain University, the University of Khartoum, Omdurman Islamic University and the Open University of Sudan. It was sponsored by the British Council and held at the University of Khartoum.
The conference highlighted the fact that demand from both the public and private sectors for graduates with good English skills is now at an unprecedented level and that the current provision of ELT at university level is unable to meet this demand and is in urgent need of reform. The papers focused on the key issues regarding ELT – namely curriculum reform, teacher training, language testing, using new technologies and engaging the private sector – and looked at how these could be tackled within the relevant contextual constraints.
