about

This open access book provides anthropological insights into the arduous yet rewarding journeys involved in selected TESOL teachers'' pedagogical transition to teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP) at universities in Shanghai, the largest metropolitan area in China. 

Applying a unique combination of ethnography and phenomenology, the book offers innovative new perspectives on teacher education research. Drawing on the latest language education theory, it outlines a practitioner-friendly approach to EAP literacy. Teacher readers will especially benefit from the case studies presented here, which provide role models for teacher change in educational reform, as well as advice on their academic careers. In addition to addressing a timely and important research gap on EAP teachers in non-Western countries, the book is the ideal choice for readers interested in an update on English education in China. 
Dr Yulong Li is an Assistant Professor at the City University of Macau, where he teaches university English, philosophy, and educational studies. Yulong has published extensively in the areas of applied linguistics, teacher development, mobile learning, education sociology and philosophy.
