An Exploratory Study of Changes to University EFL Teachers' Teaching Practices
Ya-Ting, Huang; Hui-Min, Wang
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v45 n3 p358-361 2019
The brief report describes an exploratory investigation into changes to three university EFL teachers' teaching practices in a research-intensive university framed by managerialist technologies to improve its visibility and global ranking. The findings revealed that substantial changes have been brought about to their teaching practices in terms of falling into the routine of 'technification of teaching', producing a spectacle 'what is there simply to be seen and judged' or striving to seek out new spaces for 'authentic' English teaching. The study concluded with implications for facilitating the managerial reforms that are congruent with the cognitive and contextual realities of different generations of Chinese university EFL teachers.
