The Challenges and Opportunities of Teaching English Worldwide in the COVID-19 Pandemic
This volume investigates the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic regarding teaching languages online. In this regard, it focuses on the effects of online/remote teaching on teachers and teacher educators, considering the challenges that they have faced, how they tried to deal with these challenges, and the opportunities that arose while teaching during the pandemic. The chapters include narratives by teachers working in different countries around the world, and present their first-hand suggestions for good practices and solutions. They also highlight various tools, techniques, and solutions specific to individual countries, but transferrable to other similar contexts around the world.
The book will be a valuable resource for pre- and in-service teachers, and teacher trainers involved in teaching English as a Foreign and Second Language, and will be of interest to practitioners who wish to understand multinational perspectives on online teaching, and its challenges and opportunities.
