The emergence of the additional language teacher/ adviser under the complexity paradigm

Elaine Ferreira do Vale Borges, Walkyria Magno e Silva


In this text, we discuss the emergence of a complex additional language

teacher/adviser under the complexity theory framework by reflecting

upon disturbances in the teaching and learning subsystems of pre-service

education. The complex teacher/adviser values all sub- and suprasystems,

embraces the fractalized identities, conciliates assorted conceptions

associated to this role, energizes and moves different systems linked to

the profession, and uses several methods and approaches to language

teaching and learning. We bring up some evidences of the complex teacher/

adviser emergence in language teaching preparation and in language

learning advising.
