Angles: French perspectives on the Anglophone world

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World is an international online peer-reviewed journal published bi-annually by the SAES (Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur).

 

This interdisciplinary journal has a triple aim:

to encourage innovative interdisciplinary research;

to make cutting-edge research freely available;

to make full use of the possibilities offered by digital publication by encouraging the use of different modes of expression: text, image, video, podcasts, hyperlinks…

 

Each thematic issue contains 8–12 articles selected by a guest editor after a double-blind peer-review process. Additional, off-topic articles submitted to the same double-blind peer-review process are published in a separate section. These off-topic articles may respond to articles previously published in Angles.

 

The journal fosters scholarly risk-taking and experimentation by junior and senior researchers. Angles accepts academic contributions partly, or wholly, in non-traditional forms (documentary film, short story, comic book, manifesto, pamphlet…). Angles also encourages proposals from specialists wishing to explore a different field of study than their own.

Shona Whyte's insight:

New journal - two calls for papers online.

Interactive whiteboard (IWB) research shows variation in classroom interactivity (Beauchamp & Kennewell, 2010) and a need for sustained teacher support (Cutrim Schmid & Whyte, 2012).  iTILT (interactive Technologies in Language Teaching), a 2-year European project on the IWB for communicative language teaching, was conceived partly in response to these findings and as an opportunity for further research. The project has produced a website for language teachers featuring over 250 short video clips of IWB-supported classroom practice, supplemented by relevant teacher and learner comments, created by filming 44 teachers in 81 classes involving different languages, ages, and levels of proficiency in primary, secondary, university and vocational contexts in 7 European countries. 

 

The present study focuses on data from 9 French EFL teachers in three educational sectors who participated in a dedicated online support space set up for the duration of the project.  The data are participants' contributions to the limited stream of a Google+ circle including teachers and researchers.

 

Results show variation in contributions across the 9 teachers, and reveal a number of areas of general concern, but also allow the isolation of specific interactions which affected classroom practice, with implications for teacher education in languages with technology.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Our paper on iTILT teachers in France has been accepted for the SAES conference in Dijon in May 2013.

Teaching English for Specific Purposes: specialisation and domains of expertise

Discourse domain approach to teaching ESP and application to task-based university courses.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Slides from a conference presentation I gave at the ESP workshop during the French annual conference of university English teachers and researchers. http://saes2013.u-bourgogne.fr/ateliers/41-atelier-23-anglais-de-specialite-geras.html

 

I argue that we can use the notion of discourse domain to inform task-based teaching for all kinds of ESP, including students who are traditionally classified as "specialist" (pre-service EFL teachers) and "non-specialist" or "specialists in other disciplines" (LANSAD; or usual ESP fields such as medicine, law etc.).
