EDUM7340 Contemporary Issues in ELT: Policy, Practice and Pedagogy in English Language Education (3 units)
This course raises students’ awareness of a number of contested issues in Hong Kong that have a bearing on the discipline of English Language Education (ELT). It offers students the opportunity to question; the power of policy as a change agent and its implications, the teaching profession’s response strategies to the challenges of not only educational reform policies, but also rapid developments in technology and the global shift towards knowledge-based economies inside the field of English Language education. Finally it draws together these impacts and revisits the debates about cultural identity and the perceived resistance to a concerted effort to establish a tri-lingual/bi-literate community in Hong Kong.
