English language education has undergone changes in several spheres such as curricular models, pedagogical approach, learner needs, technology adaptation and assessment models. These changes have not only affected the way teachers and educators function in the discipline, they have also impacted on the way language teaching has responded to language policies. Due to the shift in the status of this language, issues such as Global English and blurring of the NEST and NNEST has created newer perspectives. In this regard, this course will familiarize graduate students to the synchronic as well as diachronic perspectives of language education. Including the concepts of emergence of second language acquisition to turn of the critical pedagogy, the course will give students a wider understanding of how the language education is advancing to a perspective of social justice and empowerment.
