Analysing the different facets of ELF-awareness within different ELT paradigms.

What is it about?

This is a collection of short papers that were originally presented in a Colloquium that Nicos Sifakis put together in the ELF10 International Conference. The Colloquium aimed at inviting respected ELF scholars to reflect on the extent to which research in ELF is able to impact, and therefore inevitably change, English language teaching and learning in all its facets (most notably pedagogy, language learning materials design and implementation, assessment, policy, and, by extension, teacher education). The title of the Colloquium, which is also reflected in the title of this section, was “ELF-awareness in ELT: bringing together theory and practice”.

Why is it important?

The collection of papers demonstrates the need for (a) developing a comprehensive model for linking, in whatever way, the ELF construct with the ELT domain, and (b) describing good practices that demonstrate this very link.
