Advancing Language Studies in the 21st Century

Societal values, geopolitics, technological advancements, and population shifts have affected language teaching methods and approaches within universities. Although the 21st-century job market calls for proficiency in multiple languages, enrollments in language courses have steadily declined in higher education institutions. This timely collection of essays addresses the multiple perspectives arising from current issues such as declining language enrollments, suitable pedagogical approaches to meet the job market demands, and lessons learned from the recent global COVID-19 pandemic.

Mary Jo DiBiase-Lubrano, EdD, is Associate Director at the Yale University Center for Language Study. With a background in applied linguistics and language testing and assessment, her research interests focus on test validation, high stakes proficiency testing, and assessment literacy. She has published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences. She is a trainer for the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and an external consultant for the Bureau of International Language Coordination (BILC), NATO’s advisory body on language instruction and testing.
