Case studies are a powerful pedagogical tool for illuminating constructs and models in real-life contexts. Covering a wide range of teaching-learning contexts and offering in-depth analyses of ESL/ELT language curriculum design issues, this casebook is distinctive and unique in that each case draws on and is clearly linked to a single model presented in Nation and Macalister’s Language Curriculum Design (www.routledge.com/9780415806060), giving the book a high degree of coherence. A short commentary by the editors after each case highlights features of note and/or issues arising from it. This is a versatile text, designed to work as a companion to Language Curriculum Design (adding meaning and depth to the model presented there by relating it to a range of applications), as a stand-alone text, or as a resource for language teacher trainees, teacher educators, practicing teachers, program administrators, and materials writers in the field.

本書集結六篇論文(第一、三、四、六篇德文,第二篇西班牙文,第五篇義大利文),本書為因應時代變遷下的教育環境及學生職涯挑戰,在教學方法上所提出新的論述及建構。 This book contains essays by various teachers from different universities and departments with the aim of presenting modern teaching methods for the changed learning and study conditions on the basis of theoretical preliminary considerations. Language teachers at Taiwanese universities often encounter similar difficulties in designing lessons: students’ increasing frustration and lack of motivation. Many students experience a high level of frustration and demotivation; they cannot find future prospects in language studies. Confronted with reality of time-consuming internships, part-time jobs and life, many students become painfully aware that a linguistic degree won’t prepare them for later work or provides career opportunities. In addition, they realize their low language skills and life experiences. Aware of that problem, the language departments have to find new teaching methods and create curricula which increase the interest of the students and prepare them for professional life. Many students studying in the language departments will later find a job in trade or business. The universities are therefore increasingly shifting their curriculum away from classic language studies to professionally oriented teaching, including business communication or translation related to cross cultural training. The authors introduce modern teaching methods to meet the aforementioned challenges for business and cross-cultural courses. Although the contributors explain their methodical approach, the teaching methods are described and evaluated on case studies and surveys. The publication offer suggestions for course outlines.

This book is entitled Syllabus Design for English Language Teaching which was written and developed based on a research “Communicative Competence Based Syllabus Design for Speaking Course One for Students of The English Department”. It mainly provides detailed elucidation of the process of designing a syllabus as one of systematic steps of curriculum development in language teaching. Curriculum development in language teaching should be done since it implies an effort carried out by the language teachers to improve the quality of language teaching through some stages of systematic planning such as a needs analysis, formulation of learning objectives, development of syllabus and teaching materials, teaching materials’ implementation as well as evaluation to find out the effectiveness of the curriculum by taking into account the achievement of learning goals in language teaching program. This book generally includes some information on the discussion of: (1). The status of English in the education system of Indonesia and the outcomes of English teaching all this time according to researchers in the field of language teaching; (2). The distinction between the terms of curriculum and syllabus therewith the syllabus design theory from the standpoint of ESP and Language Program Development; (3). Theory of needs analysis as the main cornerstone in the development of syllabus design; (4). The concept and the theory of communicative competence based syllabus design; (5). The systematic stages in designing a competency-based syllabus ranging from preliminary stages with the needs analysis, the stage of teaching materials development, as well as the stage of reviewing the learning outcomes; (6). A practical example of a study which is presented to make the readers clearly understand how to apply the stages of developing the communicative competence based syllabus design Buku Persembahan Penerbit PrenadaMedia
