ETD Fall 2022 Issue: Call for Papers

As always, for the Fall 2022 issue of Explorations in Teacher Development, we invite any scholarship dealing with phenomena related to teacher development. We welcome articles using quantitative or qualitative data as well as theory. We hope the ETD journal can be an excellent opportunity to find a new insight to broaden perspective and have an academic discussion with the other scholars.

One suggested line of research that could be especially edifying might relate to teacher development in the post-COVID era. Since early 2020, we have faced the significant influence
of the COVID-19 pandemic. In general, schools and universities have continuously faced
challenges to provide good-quality education under this situation. In particular, we lost many
chances to have “interaction” in a face-to-face manner, which has long seemed essential for rich
language education. Despite these difficulties, the accelerated development of information and
communication technology (ICT) has opened new possibilities for improving language
education. As a result, the expectations students have for their teachers could be shifting, and
what teachers want to realise through their teaching practice is likely undergoing a similar
transformation.

Now is an opportune time to discuss how to prepare for language education in the post-COVID
era and to conceptualize the altered role of language teachers. We hope that contributors will be inspired to submit articles that reflect teaching experiences under COVID and offer insightful
educational implications for the post-COVID situation.

Please use the submission guidelines here as a starting point for your explorations in teacher
development through writing for the journal:
