Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching free pdf How does innovation in language teaching come about? This book covers the ways in which new developments in areas of language teaching practice, such policy-making, planning, methodology and the use of educational technology spread globablly and are adopted, rejected or adapted locally. By looking at the drivers, stakeholders, obstacles and affordances in one specific context - Thailand in the case of this book - it is possible to gain a deeper insight into the ways in which change processes occur. This will help anyone involved in language development, from curriculum reform to materials development, and from programme evaluation to the setting of assessment standards. The chapters in this book cover all aspects of language education in Thailand, from the primary to tertiary levels in both private and public education, as well as innovations at local, regional and national levels. The book will be of particular interest to those involved in managing change in language education that attempts to mediate between global trends and local priorities.
