Exploring Innovative Pedagogies for Enhanced Learning Outcomes in Language Teaching

In today's rapidly evolving educational landscape, the demand for innovative teaching practices is higher than ever before. As scholars, researchers, and professionals, we are constantly in search of novel approaches to engage students, enhance learning outcomes, and address the diverse needs of learners.

This call for paper for the special issue of The Literacy Trek Journal, titled “Exploring Innovative Pedagogies for Enhanced Learning Outcomes in Language Teaching”, aims to cutting-edge research, and innovative pedagogies that extend the boundaries of traditional language teaching methodologies to revolutionize the teaching and learning of foreign languages across diverse settings. We welcome contributions from scholars and practitioners in the field of language education to share their innovative approaches, case study insights, research outcomes, and transformative practices in language teaching across various educational levels.

  • Active Learning Strategies: Implementing action-oriented teaching, flipped classrooms to foster student engagement and participation in language learning.
