Pedagogy of the Glocal: Blending the Local and the Global in ELT

English has become an instrument to communicate across an ever-shrinking and globalizing world and knowledge of English is meant to provide individuals with additional educational opportunities and social mobility, the caveat being eclipsing the local.

That is why while no one can deny the unprecedented rise of English worldwide and its use as a world lingua franca, there lies a potential danger of subjecting “periphery” norms, both linguistic and cultural, to the hegemony of the “Center” mold.

In the same vein, by observing that English plays a key educational strategy in most countries, Graddol (2006) expressed his ambivalence about the global spread of English alerting global users to its “scope for great success but also for great disaster” (p. 120).

Global English may mean the end of ‘English as a Foreign Language” which implies “an inbuilt ideological positioning of the student as outsider and failure” (p. 83). Retaining a national identity in terms of accent, for instance, would mitigate the “global” zeal and reclaim the presumably stigmatized local.

EDUCATION STUDY LEARNING COLLEGE LANGUAGE SCHOOL COURSE CONCEPT

As English language teaching and learning are affected by a host of factors ranging from the macro political and cultural environments to the micro perceptions and practices of individual learners and teachers, there arises the fundamental need for a reshuffling of the global, the local and the “glocal”.

The aspired goal is to redeem the local in the global and redefine the status of English in the Expanding Circle as distinct from “global English”.

Glocalization and its conducive “Pedagogy of the Glocal” seek to contest the unquestioned imposition of external theories and practices while harnessing an unrestrained nostalgia for parochialism.

Cognizant of the limitations of mainstream pedagogy in settling the warring local -global, the neologism “Pedagogy of the Glocal” foregrounds judicious interaction between the local and the global. It ambitiously seeks to transcend the local and the global and creatively leap into a “Third Space”: English in the third space, culture in the third space and, pedagogy in the third space.

TATE Conference

As ELT professionals, we are deeply involved in several globalization schemes through our beliefs and practices. Are we aware of that? Let us find out at the next TATE Conference. Our country is going through a process of institutional democratization which yields more say and leverage to the stakeholders. Our ELT community needs to take advantage of that through adequate benchmarks and an in depth understanding of international standards, so that we can identify our similarities and identities with others, and diagnose our strengths and weaknesses. The Conference would be the right platform for that, and a golden opportunity to compare and contrast trends and practices so that we can adjust course and steer our professional development in the right direction. This theme should be of interest to all TATERS (primary, secondary and tertiary education).

TATE 7th International Conference and Exhibition invites participants from diverse disciplines to take part in a constructive dialogue about the possibilities of implementing “Pedagogy of the Glocal,” contesting the local, the global, and venturing in a third space. The conference will also be a chance for ELT professionals to try out new approaches and discuss major challenges in teaching English in a periphery country like Tunisia.

We welcome abstracts for a 20-minute presentation dealing with topics that might include (but are not limited to) the following axes:

Linguistics/applied linguistics

Literature and literary theories

Culture studies
