Special Issue on Korean Language Educators:

Perspectives, Identities, and Teaching Practices

The Journal of the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages

Guest Editor: Ebru Turker, Arizona State University

We invite pedagogy-oriented work on Korean language reporting on innovative practices in teacher education. The special issue focuses on the experiences and perceptions of Korean language educators, and offers tools and strategies for creating learning spaces and activities for the Korean-as-a-foreign language (KFL) classroom. It also touches on Korean language educators’ identities and the challenges of teaching Korean in the United States (US). The manuscript should be grounded in previous research, but do not necessarily need to include empirical studies. The practice-focused articles would enable readers to apply the practical approaches and strategies directly in their own education contexts.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

Theoretical/conceptual concerns and innovations
Pedagogical insights and innovations
Technology-based innovation of curriculum and assessment in Korean language teacher education
CALL discourse development for Korean language teacher education
Distance/hybrid instruction using digital technology and language teacher education
Use of digital technologies (e.g., tools for collaboration, feedback, corpus, gaming, and social annotation) with Korean language teachers
Transdisciplinary perspectives
Translanguaging in classroom or online enhanced environments
Korean Language teacher emotions and identity (including race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class)
Local and global perspectives
Networking and learning in professional communities
