English Language Teacher Educator Conference 2015

Organised by the British Council in association with the English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad (EFL-U), the conference this year is on the theme is ‘Ensuring Quality in English Language Teacher Education’. 

The belief is that quality in teachers’ learning leads to better learning outcomes for learners. The theme will allow a wide-ranging exploration of teacher education in India and beyond, with a focus on quality in both pre-service education and in-service training. 

Over 100 experts and renowned scholars from the UK, India and other countries will speak at the conference, including practicing teacher educators from India and the region. They will discuss:

  • policy and quality initiatives
  • the quality of curriculum, materials and methods in English language teacher education
  • monitoring and evaluation of teacher education programmes.

 

The conference will also see the launch of the Survey of English Language Teaching (ELT) Research in India, developed by EFL University and the University of Warwick and other research initiatives. This survey, the first of its kind for ELT in India, is a free, searchable dynamic online research database of first level information on research items, developed by EFL University and the University of Warwick. The database has over 350 research items from 2005-2014, with inputs from over 50 institutions from all over India. This follows the soft launch of the database last year when the research from EFLU was showcased.

Over 1,000 teacher educators, ministerial officials, heads of universities and colleges, representatives of the vocational sector, senior academic staff, directors of NGOs and policymakers from over 30 countries across the globe will be in Hyderabad from 27 February 2015 to 1 March 2015 to attend the conference.
