STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The purpose of the Faith in English Language Teaching Professional Learning Network (PLN) is to provide a platform where members can explore the role of personal faith in ELT. Canagarajah (2009) noted that “social and philosophical trends have led to a point when … the spiritual cannot be kept out of the mainstream. Also, we live in a time when the personal finds a legitimate place in the academy” (p. 15). Accordingly, in this PLN, participants from different faith backgrounds will discuss how their faith influences their teacher identities and pedagogical practices, and learn from each other’s diverse perspectives. For that large segment of the TESOL community who are also members of various faith communities, faith is an essential element of personal identity, and hence of teacher identity. This PLN thus supports TESOL’s mission to advance professional development through supporting integrated teacher identity. It also supports the strategic objective to expand the variety of professional learning opportunities.
