Call for Papers

University-school relationships in language teacher education

Universities and schools have central roles in teacher education. However, the relationship that prevails, many times, between these two educational institutions is asymmetrical and favors the status of the former (university) over the latter (school). We understand that this is a relationship of coloniality, following a colonial matrix of power based on binary structures, which continues to be reproduced even in the absence of colonial administration (Quijano, 2005; Grosfóguel, 2010). We argue for the need to challenge such a relationship, since, from a decolonial perspective, universities and schools are knowledge construction and praxis redefinition places. Therefore, we invite teachers and researchers in Applied Linguistics to reflect on the university-school relationship in language teacher education, submitting texts in English, Portuguese, or Spanish that discuss this topic.
