Centre for Excellence in Language Teaching (CELT)

The Centre for Excellence in Language Teaching (CELT) exists to promote the scholarship of teaching and learning of all languages. CELT supports language educators in LCS to promote their scholarship of language teaching. CELT does this through organising workshops, discussions, and seminars as well as hosting (and presenting at) international, national and regional conferences. A key ambition of CELT is to help make language educators’ scholarship more visible to professional and educational communities to which we belong. Perhaps of greatest importance CELT exists to develop and nurture a collegial and collaborative network of language educators committed to scholarship.

The creation of the CELT journal ‘The Language Scholar’ is an essential means to communicate our scholarship in a variety of genres to colleagues, the university and the wider language teaching community. Around 100 colleagues in LCS have teaching roles and specialisms in language teaching, creating a vibrant, electric and diverse community of educators committed to student education and to developing and communicating their own experiences and expertise in language education. Our collective understanding of scholarship for language education is encapsulated in the Language Scholar manifesto

CELT publishes the online journal ‘The Language Scholar’. The aim of this journal is to enable colleagues and students within the school as well as contributors from other institutions to publish their work and thoughts in a wide variety of multimodal genres, from critical reviews to thought pieces and case studies. You can find the journal at http://languagescholar.leeds.ac.uk/
