I am very happy to upload here my paper on SLTE curriculum. It offers a comprehensive exploration into second language teacher education from an EFl context with a focus on curriculum.

This paper explores SLTE curriculum and speci!cally examines the course structure of a teacher education program in Chile. This examination is done through a Cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) lens. CHAT is a theory of human development, which sees learning as a collective and mediated activity. This study used a qualitative research design analysing a complex data set. The analysis of documents and participants’ perceptions on the course structure revealed a constant tension between a developmental curricular model and a training model in which content knowledge competed with practical pedagogical knowledge. The !ndings also con!rm the tendency of English pro!ciency as the most prominent knowledge in this context.
