Gloria Park, assistant professor of English and director of the M.A. TESOL program, has been invited to join a panel of TESOL teacher education scholars at the International TESOL Convention in Dallas, Texas, in March 2013.
The colloquium panel focuses on “Teacher Identity Research Today: Implications for Teacher Education.”
Other invited presenters are Suhanthie Motha and Manka Varghese from the University of Washington, and John Trent from the City University of Hong Kong.
Recent research on language teachers’ identity construction have largely taken a sociocultural view on identity, framing the construct as dynamic, multiple, and negotiated. In light of this new view on identity, in this presentation we take a look at language teacher identity research today, explore teacher identity from multiple vantage points (both geographic as well as psychological/social), and discuss the implications of language teacher identity research findings for teacher education.
