New Book Publication: Advances and Current Trends in Language Teacher Identity Research by Yin Ling Cheung, Selim Ben Said & Kwanghyun Park

This book presents the latest research on understanding language teacher identity and development for both novice and experienced researchers and educators, and introduces non-experts in language teacher education to key topics in teacher identity research. It covers a wide range of backgrounds, themes, and subjects pertaining to language teacher identity and development. Some of these include:

 

  • The effects of apprenticeship in doctoral training on novice teacher identity
  • The impacts of mid-career redundancy on the professional identities of teachers
  • Challenges faced by teachers in the construction of their professional identities
  • The emerging professional identity of pre-service teachers
  • Teacher identity development of beginning teachers
  • The role of emotions in the professional identities of non-native English speaking teachers
  • The negotiation of professional identities by female academics

Advances and Current Trends in Language Teacher Identity Research would appeal to academics in ELT/TESOL/Applied Linguistics. It will also be useful to those who are non-experts in language teacher education yet still need to know about theories and recent advances in the area due to varying reasons including their affiliation to a teacher training institute; needs to participate in projects on language teacher education; and teaching a course for pre-service and in-service language teachers.
