Teacher-researchers in action

Opening articles by Burns, Allwright and Smith; case studies from Turkey.

 

Allwright says:

 

1. That ‘research’ and ‘development’ are both essentially about getting understanding, so teacher-research for teacher development needs to be centred on working to understand, rather than on finding immediate solutions to practical classroom problems.

2. That learners need (and want) to understand at least as much as teachers do. That they do not think they get much help from teachers in this. And that our learners deserve all the help we can provide for them to develop their understandings.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Looks like an interesting collection

[[ This is a content summary only.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Marisa Constantinides says: "Technology has been a part of the syllabus for a long time, although it is true that many centres still opt not to train their candidates in its uses for the same reasons that trainees resist it: ignorance, lack of confidence, lack of conviction in its educational value and just plain shirking one’s duty as a trainer – in the same way that some teachers shirk their duty as teachers."

LANSAD et langues de spécialité | TELT | Scoop.it
Le premier numéro inter-associatif de la revue « Recherche et pratiques pédagogiques en langues de spécialité » (http://apliut.revues.org/) invite donc tous les enseignants et les chercheurs dans toutes les langues à partager leurs travaux en lien avec le secteur LANSAD, notamment dans son rapport aux langues de spécialité. Ce numéro se veut un espace de dialogue ouvert pour nourrir la réflexion sur la structuration raisonnée du secteur LANSAD au niveau national, et du domaine des langues dans son ensemble à l’Université et dans le reste de l’Enseignement Supérieur, en lien avec les évolutions du paysage éducatif européen.

Sherlock Lesson ‘A Study in Pink’/ Spoken grammar

Shona Whyte's insight:

I just looked at the lesson plan based on an extract from the Sherlock TV series.  This teacher aims to provide "hackable" content which is independent of both context and learner proficiency; there are learner and teacher sheets, plus links to teaching resources, so it's pretty much all there.  I'm bookmarking it for my pre-service and newly qualified teachers :-)

Exploration de corpus : outils et pratiques

Exploration de corpus : outils et pratiques | TELT | Scoop.it

Le groupe de travail Exploration de corpus, du consortium corpus écrits, vise à proposer une synthèse descriptive des usages d’exploitation de corpus les plus répandus dans la communauté francophone. Chacune des pratiques recensées sera précisément documentée et articulée à trois entrées :

le type de corpus d’étude ;l’objectif de recherche escompté, qu’il soit descriptif ou applicatif ;les outils de traitement de corpus mobilisés pour s’acquitter de cette tâche, en distinguant entre outils disponibles et outils propriétaires, outils de traitement quantitatif vs qualitatif, etc., suivant les pratiques qui seront mises au jour grâce aux réflexions et aux échanges des participants.Ce travail de synthèse et de recensement de l’existant permettra aux linguistes et plus généralement, aux chercheurs intéressés par un travail sur corpus d’orienter leurs pratiques et leurs choix techniques relativement à leurs objectifs de recherche. Il aidera la communauté à s’orienter parmi l’offre disponible, ce qui n’est pas toujours simple à l’heure actuelle, tout en faisant découvrir d’autres pratiques et d’autres outils plus méconnus.
