Author: Dr Ricky Lam, Associate Professor, Department of Education Studies
 

Despite the rise of portfolio teaching in first language classrooms, its application in an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) context is rare. To fill this void, this book focuses on using portfolios to support language teaching in EFL contexts, and it provides teachers with an easy-to-follow guide that enables them to start their customised portfolio programmes. 

 

The book strikes a balance between rationale and practice through ready-to-use pedagogical strategies, authentic examples, and thought-provoking learning tasks for consolidation. 

 

Apart from inspiring English teachers who aim to upgrade their pedagogies with portfolios, this book will also be useful for research postgraduate students and scholars as reference material for a methodology course in other programmes.
