Teaching English & Teaching IN English in global contexts is a cutting-edge online academic network with teaching resources, online seminars, blogs, student section and a forum to foster collaborative projects, and to encourage networking and information exchange between students, researchers and practitioners, as well as form research partnerships in this growing field.

In essence, the network aims to benefit the following groups:

Researchers:

– the network will be of interest to researchers worldwide, interested in the pedagogical implications of the global spread of the English language for the ELT industry, which are rapidly gathering momentum in the field.

– the network will provide researchers with an opportunity to disseminate their research and embark on collaborative research projects.

– the network will help future PhD students to identify supervisors and experts in the field.

Practitioners

This platform makes materials accessible to a wide range of audiences, including English language teachers, potential PhD students and business professionals, who are looking to expand their knowledge of TESOL theories and current trends in research, in order to develop their own teaching practice and improve their own curricula.

Current students and alumni

– the network provides a vibrant, intellectually stimulating and enquiry-orientated environment for students to discuss issues related to teaching/learning English as a global language.

-it helps them to establish relationships and communicate with professionals in the fields of teaching English and teaching IN English in global contexts

– it helps expand individual opportunity and enhance graduate employability by strengthening the online research profile of current and past students and developing their research capacity.

– the network provides students with a chance to upload lesson plans and activity ideas.

Our Partners

CGE at the University of Southampton produces and disseminates research on the linguistic and sociocultural dimensions of global uses and users of English (Global Englishes), and on English as a Lingua Franca in particular. The centre provides a forum for knowledge-sharing and collaboration with other interested researchers and centres around the world.


EMI Oxford Research Group is a research group within the Department of Education at The University of Oxford, which explores the educational and linguistic implications of the spread of English as a medium instruction (EMI) within communities where English is not the primary language of communication. Currently, the world is seeing a boom in EMI as an educational model, but the implications this growing trend is severely under-researched. Thus, the research group aims to fill this void in its exploration of the effects of EMI on language learning, content learning, teaching delivery, quality of education, equality of access, and other multi-faceted aspects of EMI.
