Keeping Current in Language Education

With a theme such as Keeping Current in Language Education, the focus has to be on innovation--in the classroom, in the materials we use, in the way evaluate ourselves and our students, and in the beliefs and ideals we hold as teachers.

The papers published in this Conference Proceedings were chosen for the innovativeness they bring to the language teaching profession--particularly in our Japanese context. With around 80 articles to choose from, we are sure readers will find much to work with in their teaching.

We would like to offer our sincere appreciation and gratitude to all those people who helped us to bring the Proceedings to this point: our editorial team; Kim Bradford Watts, Cecilia Ikeguchi, Robert Long, Megumi Kawate-Mierzejewska (Japanese Editor), Amanda O'Brien, Michael Schart (German Editor), Joseph Sheehan, and Chiara Zamborlin (Italian Editor); our reading committee; and all the writers themselves.
