    This practical resource book showcases both the theory and practical application for teacher educators in diverse contexts bringing a global Englishes perspective into their teacher education courses, both at pre- and in-service levels. The recent Global Englishes paradigm serves as a promising response to the complexity of identity, interaction, use, and instruction surrounding the English language. It is increasingly important to enhance teachers’ knowledge base—their specialized knowledge, skills, competencies, and commitments—vis-à-vis the changing needs of English Language Teaching. The chapters in the book provide accessible theoretical orientation to different aspects of the Global Englishes paradigm, from instructional materials to language assessment, and are complemented by a range of practical applications that promote teacher development. The volume is recommended as a viable professional development resource for teacher educators who are looking for activities and resources in preparing teachers for diverse teaching contexts, realities, affordances, and constraints.

Methodologically he is interested in critical autoethnography, narrative inquiry, and qualitative case study.

    "This edited volume is a fitting tribute to the life and work of Farzad Sharifian. Professor Sharifian spent his life investigating the spread and development of Global Englishes and the ramifications of this linguistic and cultural diversity for the teaching of English. Building on his work, this book combines the theoretical underpinnings of Global Englishes with the pedagogical implications of Global Englishes for teaching methods and materials, language identity, language assessment, and curriculum development. This is a ground-breaking book in its mapping out of the relationship between the theory of Global Englishes and its practical implications for English teacher education and English learning around the globe. It provides a sound model for future work in this area." - Sandra Lee McKay, Professor Emerita, San Francisco State University, USA

    "This is a delightful collection of ideas on how the intricacies and realities of Global Englishes can be translated in teacher education programs. It offers fresh theoretical perspectives on the topic as well as presenting practical and down-to-earth ideas that language teachers and language teacher educators can apply in their teaching. A must-read book for language students and educators." -Willy A. Renandya, Principal Lecturer, National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
