Welcome to the home page of the 10th East Asia New Directions in English language assessment conference.

We are proud to announce the 10th New Directions East Asia conference to be held in Bali, Indonesia on 9-10 December 2022.

The conference theme is Bridging divides: Towards a comprehensive approach to language teaching, learning and assessment.

Since 2013, New Directions East Asia has been bringing the professional language testing and learning community together to collectively engage with the challenges and trends affecting education and assessment systems around the East Asia region and beyond. This year, we plan to deliver a revised format of New Directions with a two-day concentrated agenda of high-profile, high-impact presentations and discussions in a face-to-face format, preceded and followed by online dissemination of quality content and curated presentations around the key conference topics.

We look forward to closing the circle on the first ten-years of New Directions East Asia and stepping across the threshold into the next decade in the company of partners, friends, and colleagues from around the region and the world in Bali, Indonesia in December 2022.
