Theme: “Well-being” in English Education: Discovering the Possibilities for Learners, Teachers, and Society


Why do we learn? It is primarily because learning can lead to happiness and well-being. The agents of learning who strive for this well-being are, of course, the learners and the teachers within society. In EFL contexts such as Japan and many Asian countries, though foreign language learning opportunities are diversifying, learning occurs most often in the classroom. Therefore, both the learners and the teachers should know how to learn and grow together. Much of the research in foreign language education has aimed at this lofty goal.
In recent years, as the field of foreign language education has flourished, eyes are turning towards a multitude of issues including curriculum reform, technological development, and quality assurance in education. This may be an appropriate time to stop and take stock of the developments in the fields of applied linguistics and language education and to reevaluate the basics and fundamentals.

At the 59th JACET International Convention (Kyoto, 2020), we welcome researchers and practitioners from a diverse range of fields, such as educational psychology, methodological research, curriculum design, educational engineering, teacher education, evaluation, instructional design and more, to come together and reconsider the well-being of learners, teachers, as well as society as a whole through lively debate and to further the discussion on the nature of foreign language education.

Keynote Speakers:
