Exploring Experimental Practice in English language teaching

 

This is part of a series of interviews with fellow English language teaching professions to be published on this blog.

 

The interviewees are drawn from a variety of teaching contexts, in different countries and working with different kinds of learners. What they have in common is having experimented in some way with their teaching practice.

Shona Whyte's insight:

This looks interesting for teacher education/professional development: interviews with practitioners from the ELT blogosphere.

 

I'm looking for resources to help trainee and newly qualified EFL teachers in French secondary schools get the most out of teaching placements and action research opportunities.  So examples of independent professional development in other contexts are worth bookmarking for me.
