In modern-day global and multi-cultural learning environments, it has become necessary to revisit the paradigm of the current teaching-learning methods and tools to allow for innovative, state-of- the-art techniques. This is particularly important in the area of English language teaching and learning, where new advances in technology, social media, and multiculturalism have dominated the scene to directly affect learners, tutors, and consequently teaching and assessment strategies. To shed light on the impact of such new trends, the Arab Open University, Egypt Branch, and in collaboration with Garnet Education are organizing this conference. The conference hosts highly renowned international keynote speakers, together with field practitioners from different countries. This in itself is a true manifestation of the notion of globalization and multi-culturalism, a distinctive feature of this era.
