brian-tomlinsonBrian Tomlinson, Ph.D.

TESOL Professor:

Dr. Brian Tomlinson is considered to be one of the world's leading experts on materials development for language learning. In 1993 he established the world's first MA dedicated to the study of materials

development for language learning (at the University of Luton in the UK) and he founded MATSDA (the internationally renowned Materials Development Association). He has been Chair and then President of MATSDA ever since 1993 and, as such, he launched the journal Folio and ran (with Hitomi Masuhara) a number of materials writing workshops in the UK and in Botswana, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, the Seychelles, Singapore, Turkey and Vietnam. He has also organised and presented the opening plenary at thirty international MATSDA conferences. In addition he has given plenary presentations on materials development in over sixty countries. His many books on materials development are considered to be the leaders in the field. They include Materials Development in Language Teaching (Cambridge University Press: 1998, 2011), Developing Materials for Language Teaching (Continuum: 2003), English Language Learning Materials: A Critical Review (Continuum: 2008), Research for Materials Development in Language Learning - with Hitomi Masuhara (Continuum: 2010) and Applied Linguistics and Materials Development - with Hitomi Masuhara (Continuum: 2012). He has also just finished a state of the art survey of the literature on materials development published in the Cambridge University Press journal Language Teaching. Dr. Tomlinson has also published books on language teaching methodology (Teaching Secondary English - with Rod Ellis: Longman 1980), on language through literature (Openings: Penguin: 1994) and on language awareness (Discover English - with Rod Bolitho: Macmillan 1995), as well as contributing to textbooks for Bulgaria, for China, for Ethiopia, for Japan, for Malaysia, for Morocco, for Nigeria, for Turkey, for Namibia, for Singapore and for Zambia. He is currently a Visiting Professor at Leeds Metropolitan University, and an Advisor for the British Council English Language Advisory Group.

Message from Brian Tomlinson, Ph.D.

I’m delighted to be joining the team of TESOL faculty members here at Anaheim and to be able to share my experience and enthusiasm as both a TESOL practitioner and an applied linguistics academic. I started my career, believe it or not, as a teacher trainer in Nigeria and only after that became a classroom teacher in Liverpool and then in Zambia. I moved on to being a curriculum developer in Zambia and then became a teacher trainer again. I continued as a teacher trainer in the UK and then in Vanuatu before becoming Director of Studies at a college in the UK. Since then I’ve been a university academic in Japan, the UK, Singapore and Oman but I’ve frequently returned to the language classroom as a teacher (for example as an EAP teacher in Oman). Throughout my career I’ve been interested in materials development and I’ve published coursebooks in China, Ethiopia, Japan, Nigeria, Singapore and Zambia, In the last fifteen years though I’ve specialised in publishing books, chapters and articles on materials development and I’ve focused on trying to bring researchers and practitioners together to ensure that the materials that teachers use in the classroom are principled and effective. To support this aim I formed the Materials Development Association (MATSDA) in 1993 and as Chair and now President I’ve been organising conferences and workshops throughout the world to bring together researchers, writers, teachers and publishers.
