GRETA Journal, Revista para Profesores de Inglés (ISSN 1989-7146), is preparing the publication of its 22nd volume. GRETA Journal publishes manuscripts on English Language Teaching Methodology. The objective of the journal is to bridge the gap between the field of Applied Linguistics and class praxis. Other fundamental goals include providing updated information about the latest trends, techniques, materials, and methodologies employed in EFL teaching and to exchange experiences and publications between research teams both on a national and international level.
Higher education innovators and institutional leaders have many expectations about blended learning. To get the most out of face-to-face and virtual learning environments, these must provide learners with flexible learning environments that overcome situational barriers for learning. Additionally, they must be pedagogically rich learning settings where different learning styles can be supported. Blended learning allows for the combination of a variety of offline learning ecologies (in classrooms, at work, at home, in the field) with a wealth of online resources.
The intersection of globalization and American style higher education is perhaps most keenly expressed in the necessity of the English language as a connecting force. However, as the lingua franca of many ‘global’ or ‘international’ liberal arts programs, it is more than just a medium of instruction. English operates as the defacto language of globalized higher education, with the assumption that it can be dehistoricized and value-free. Yet faculty teaching in international contexts know that English medium education biases many higher education practices, including text selection, the subordination of other languages, and often an associated second class treatment of non-Western cultures.
