LECTURE | ELT and the Digital Future: How Can Language Teachers Stay Ahead of the Curve?


The Linguistic Society of the Philippines (LSP) and the Lasallian Institute for Development and Educational Research (LIDER) invite you to a lecture on “ELT and the Digital Future: How Can Language Teachers Stay Ahead of the Curve?” by SEAMEO-RELC, Singapore language specialist Dr. Joel C. Meniado. Join via Zoom on February 13, 2021 (Saturday) from 10AM-12 NN (Philippine Standard Time)!

Societal and technological changes are transforming the ways English language is taught and learned. New systems, standards, and practices emerge due to the continuous influx of technological innovations and social developments. With the ELT landscape becoming more complex and demanding, what new roles will language teachers hold in the years ahead? How can they become more responsive and competitive in the digital future? What new skills or competencies do they need in order to stay ahead of the curve?
This presentation will describe the trends and trajectories of digital language teaching and learning, discuss the emerging roles of 21st-century English teachers, explore the new skills and competencies they need in the future, and illustrate how they can effectively develop and sustain these new skills and competencies in their own innovative ways. Participants are expected to gain new knowledge and insights on how to keep themselves more relevant and competitive in the age of digital language teaching and learning.
