English language education in the Industrial Revolution 4.0: Meeting the needs of the dynamic labor market

The 4th Industrial Revolution, accompanied by advancements in robotics, virtual reality, cloud technology, big data, artificial intelligence, the internet of things and other technologies, is predicted to fundamentally change the way we learn, work and relate to others. The line between the physical, digital and biological spheres will be blurred. The entire system of production, management, and governance in industries will be transformed with new jobs created requiring more skills while routine ones will be automated. The resulting fast-changing global economy poses a challenging question to education: How to help learners prepare for such a dynamic labor market? Suggestions and responses to that critical question have been centered on the need to develop an adaptable and flexible education system which is outcomes-based and facilitative to the flexible awarding of educational qualifications and the special focus on ICT, future technologies, teacher education, and lifelong learning.

As the English language has become not only the language for political and commercial communication between people in different countries but also an important communication tool between human and machines, English language education needs to be paid special attention in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

In response to the fast-changing socio-economic, cultural and educational environment, English language education need to ensure not only high quality but also flexibility and suitability for the industries and contemporary social life. Such requirement is considered challenging for almost all English language learners, teachers, and educational institutions, and therefore demands collaborative and comprehensive solutions.

Aiming to bring together teachers, practitioners, researchers and research scholars in the field to exchange ideas and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of English language education in response to the requirement, we are now inviting proposals for presentations from teachers, practitioners, researchers, research students, and research scholars on the following strands:
