An Interview with Penny Ur: Darren Elliott

An Interview with Penny Ur: Darren Elliott | TELT | Scoop.it

Darren Elliott says: "I had great opportunity to meet one of my ELT heroes, Penny Ur, when she visited Japan for the JALT National Conference in Kobe in the Autumn of 2013. Her plenary went over very well, and I spoke to her after she had given another talk to a packed room. You can see the slides from those talks here, but first please check out the interview."

"The research literature is an important source
of professional knowledge.
It is increasingly accessible to the practitioner
through conferences and the Internet.
It should be read selectively and critically."
