We are pleased to announce that the Call for Papers for New Directions East Asia 2022 has now opened.  

New Directions is the British Council’s flagship language testing and assessment conference. It provides perspectives and insight on trends and approaches in English language assessment at a local, regional, and international level. Since being established in 2013, New Directions has celebrated nine editions, with the latest being held online in December 2021. 

This year’s conference convenes in Bali, Indonesia on December 9-10 under the theme “Bridging Divides: Towards a comprehensive approach to language teaching, learning and assessment.

The theme considers the crucial role of standards and frameworks in breaking down the barriers between teaching, learning and assessment in the comprehensive learning system and how education systems can leverage standards to achieve a holistic approach to achieving proficiency goals. 

We invite paper proposals that address the main theme of the conference, and our strands:

  • Standards and frameworks: Integrating teaching, learning and assessment

  • A collaborative future: Humans and technology
