On Seeing Monkeys, Cows, and Beggars | < ELT Research > | Scoop.it

Through collaborative writing, the authors reflect on ethnographic engagement and critique “research tourism,” that is, drop-in, quick-fix “fieldwork” in developing countries. We position ourselves not as researchers vis-à-vis researched, but as two scholars set between researchers and researched, sometimes in the role of researcher but also stepping inside the binary to limn the gap.

Motivating: collaborative writing in research.

Inquiry vs research / Inquiry-based practice / Inquiry and evidence-based practice / INSTEP - INSTEP | < ELT Research > | Scoop.it
Ki te Aoturoa is a set of learning materials for inservice teacher educators (ISTEs) that models the integration of theory and practice critical for ISTE learning. The materials are intended to help ISTEs improve their practice in ways that will impact on teachers� practice and lead to improved student outcomes. The materials were developed as part of INSTEP, a Ministry of Education, New Zealand-wide research and development initiative about the learning and practice of ISTEs.
RossanaPiccini's insight:

"The key difference is in the developmental aim of practitioner inquiry and in the fact that it is not carried out with the intention, necessarily, of being made public."

How to Carefully Choose Useless Titles for Academic Writing

How to Carefully Choose Useless Titles for Academic Writing | < ELT Research > | Scoop.it
An informative title for an article or chapter maximizes the likelihood that your audience correctly remembers enough about your arguments to re-discover what they are looking for. Without embedded cues, your work will sit undisturbed on other scholars’ PDF libraries, or languish unread among hundreds of millions of other documents on the Web. That must be what what we want, based on on what we do.
