World Englishes - Martin Dewey
Martin Dewey will be joining us on the11th METU International ELT Convention. Dr. Dewey is lecturer in Applied Linguistics at King's College London, UK, where he teaches courses in Sociolinguistics, World Englishes, Teacher Education, and supervises PhD students investigating the globalization of English and English language teaching. His primary research focuses on the use of English as a lingua franca (ELF), especially concerning the implications of ELF for curriculum change in pedagogy, including reconsiderations of contemporary practice in language teacher education and conceptualizations of teacher knowledge. He has written numerous articles on ELF and is co-author with Alessia Cogo of Analysing English as a Lingua Franca: A Corpus-driven investigation (Continuum, 2012).
