There have been a number of books published on various aspects of
materials development for language teaching but Developing
Materials for Language Teaching is the only one which provides a
comprehensive coverage of the main aspects and issues in the field.
This second edition brings it completely up to date and expands on
the original book. It deals with advances in IT and an increasingly
globalized world. It is the only publication which views current
developments in materials development through the eyes of
developers and users of materials from all over the world. In doing
so it applies principles to practice in ways demonstrated to
facilitate the effectiveness of language learning materials. The
chapters are written so that the book provides critical overviews
of recent developments in materials development and at the same
time acts as a stimulus for development and innovation in the
field. It is intended both for use as a course book on postgraduate
and teacher training courses and as a resource for the stimulus and
refreshment of teachers, publishers and applied linguists in the
field. The book contains updated versions of many of the chapters
in the 2003 edition plus new chapters on corpus-informed materials
development, materials development for blended learning, materials
development for EAP, materials development for ESOL and materials
development for young learners.
