The International Conference on New Trends in English Language Teaching, Learning and Education, 26-27 September 2022, held at the UniOR Summer School of Procida (Italy), is the first of a series of yearly conferences which will constitute a leading forum for the presentation of new advances, trends and approaches in EFL theory and practice in the post-pandemic era. During the past few years, the global educational system was shaken by unprecedented difficult social and health conditions which compelled educators, at all levels, to adapt their teaching methods. This led to new technological challenges as the use of existing online platforms became more widespread, or new tools were inevitably introduced in the EFL world. Many of these pedagogical changes have proven particularly effective in the foreign language classroom. The Conference is a University of Naples L’Orientale event organised to provide an international platform for ELT educators and practitioners to share their innovative educational and teaching experiences with global experts.
