Brauer, Gerd, Ed.
This second volume in the series "Advances in Foreign and Second Language Pedagogy" is an introduction to the pedagogy of language learning in higher education focusing on learner motivation, classroom environments, relationships for learning, and the future of language education. The book reveals numerous links to language education on the secondary level. Fifteen authors for the United States, Australia, and Germany contribute articles on issues such as the political agenda of institutions of higher education, artistic and aesthetic practice, language across the curriculum, service learning, adult education, intercultural awareness through electronic media, extra-curricular consultation, and language learning outreach. These pedagogical issues are related to teaching Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, French, German, and English as a second or foreign language. The book is divided into four parts (Learner Motivation, Classroom Environments, Relationships for Learning, and Preparing the Future of Language Education) and 15 chapters.
