Optimizing College Foreign Language Teachers’ Knowledge Structure from Multiple Intelligence Theory

Bo Liu, Jie Hui, Lin Li, and Yuanying Li

Abstract—The knowledge structure of college foreign language (CFL) teachers is crucial for their teaching & research and professional development. In this paper, the Multiple Intelligence Theory (MI Theory) by Gardner is brought into the category of Foreign Language (FL) teachers’ knowledge structure; Accordingly, characteristics of FL teachers’ MI knowledge structure are revealed; from the perspective of objectivity and subjectivity of knowledge existence, FL teachers’ knowledge structure can be divided into two parts: the interior one and the exterior one; and at length, based on MI theory, suggestions on how to optimize FL teachers’ knowledge structure are proposed from two aspects: interior knowledge construction and exterior knowledge construction.
