LTLT 2018LTLT 2018 is to investigate the diversity and unity of different teaching and learning practices in the globalised context of language education. The event is a forum for both local insights and international perspectives to be shared and analysed for better understandings and more effective practices of the field. Provided with the pervasive numbers of technology-oriented learners, the language learning context of today has significantly different from that of the last few years. Almost every student comes to class with a smartphone and remains connected during all class meetings at a physical room. Students can even turn down their teachers' lectures for maintaining their presence in some virtual space. This urges this conference to feature talks on the dominance of digital citizens in today class, the local values that learners bringing to the virtual learning space, and other learning behaviours of the Z generation. The focus also lays on the nature of learners' communicative needs and contradictions between teaching practices and learning preferences. It is anticipated that the conference would be able to consolidate insights from various teaching and learning contexts with different modes of delivery.
