Repositioning Language Teacher Education for Future Orientation

Education today cannot ignore the forces of globalisation, disruptions (such as the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the concomitant advancement of technological affordances, particularly in communication and interconnectivity) and crises (such as the COVID-19 Pandemic and the Ukraine–Russia war). These crises and disruptions have drastically altered the way we live, work and learn overnight, and have forced all nations to re-think traditional paradigms of teaching and learning. Teacher education and by extension, language teacher education is no exception. Challenging traditional paradigms further is the urgent need for learners to be able solve complex and unprecedented problems from a multidisciplinary lens. This keynote address seeks to articulate the type of rethinking any system has to make in order to prepare upcoming language educators to acquire the future-ready competencies. It will further suggest applying Gardner’s (2008) Five Minds for the Future while positing a sixth and seventh mind that can help language educators thrive in the new teaching and learning spaces including navigating techno-dependence in the post-pandemic eduscape.
