From the PublisherThis book guides its readers to make sense of the complex, dynamic, and situated nature of change and innovation in English language education. The clarity of the writing and the decision by the editors to encourage case studies that illustrate a positive implementation of change will have the salutary effect of helping readers exercise their agency and embrace and even initiate change, rather than fearing or avoiding it.

Ken Hyland and Lillian Wong are to be commended for their timely and utterly absorbing synthesis of the knowledge base regarding innovation in English language teaching (ELT) around the globe. Innovation is the driving force for growth in the globalized economy of the 21st century and access to the English language is a prerequisite for effective participation in it. Yet, prior to this volume, the research literature has been scattered and largely incoherent. This book advances the field significantly by documenting the ways which innovation in ELT is likely to produce tangible and sustainable improvements in student outcomes.
