Practice and progression in Second Language Research methods: Mackey 2015

Since its inception, the field of second language research has utilized methods from a number of areas, including general linguistics, psychology, education, sociology, anthropology and, recently, neuroscience and corpus linguistics. As the questions and objectives expand, researchers are increasingly pushing methodological boundaries to gain a clearer picture of second language learning. At one end for example, we see measures of cognition (e.g., brain imaging and eye tracking) and at the other end we see exploration of issues of culture and identity (e.g., ethnographies, deep dive case studies, introspective and narrative analyses). There is an emerging emphasis on research synthesis, meta-analysis, and replication. This article illustrates a few of the advancements in methods and research agendas in SLA. I will conclude by highlighting some of the ways that second language researchers can continue to incorporate, assimilate, and shape methodology, as well as pointing out some of the potential pitfalls, and overall, how these methodological innovations benefit the field.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Free access; overview of field from prominent researcher, many citations of perhaps lesser-known work and directions for future research.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I'm having a little trouble parsing Myers' title, but some of the references to work on social media for science look worth chasing up.

Second language interaction at the IWB: AILA paper

Second language interaction at the IWB: AILA paper | TELT | Scoop.it

This paper investigates second language interaction at the interactive whiteboard (IWB). Video-recorded lessons of eleven French and German teachers of EFL were analysed for use of IWB features but also language interaction, using a 4-level scale (drill, display, simulation and communication) to capture learners’ opportunities to use English.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Tweaking our slides for our AILA presentation next week.  Euline will be giving our paper; she says it's the only IWB presentation.
