Demand High EAP

Demand High EAP | TELT | Scoop.it

"I strongly believe we need to be (re)creating a climate of knowledge building in the EAP classroom." Steve Kirk

Shona Whyte's insight:

Steve Kirk argues that in language for academic purposes classes, fluency activities where learners "just speak" are insufficient: learners also need to learn to develop "contentful" contributions.  

 

I think a) this is also true of other second/foreign language teaching contexts and b) a strong version of task-based teaching can help address this concern.

Second language teaching methods: Geoff Jordan's picks

Second language teaching methods: Geoff Jordan's picks | TELT | Scoop.it

Geoffrey Jordan explains why the silent method, suggestopedia, and community language learning should be consigned to the history books, recommends multiple intelligences get the same treatment, and comes out in favour of task-based learning combined with a genuinely learner-centred approach (process syllabus).  

Shona Whyte's insight:

Cogently and entertainingly argued as usual, with links to further resources.

L’enjeu de ces lieux sera ensuite l’ouverture à de nouveaux publics.

« Même si le “cœur de cible“ reste l’enseignant, nous avons besoin de nous ouvrir, élargir à la communauté éducative dans son ensemble et aller au-delà », précise JM Merriaux.

La question du continuum pédagogique entre temps scolaire et temps périscolaire a été également réfléchie et amène à penser que ces espaces pourraient devenir ces lieux de rencontre à destination des collectivités, des universités, de l’éducation prioritaire sans oublier les parents d’élèves.

LE CORPS ET LA VOIX DE L'ENSEIGNANT : THéORIE ET PRATIQUE | Cadet & Tellier | TELT | Scoop.it

« Tout comme le comédien, l’enseignant utilise son corps et sa voix comme outils de travail, à la fois en tant que stratégie de transmission et en tant qu’outil d’animation. Si les recherches sur le corps de l’enseignant en éducation et en didactique ont avant tout une coloration psychanalytique, sociologique, philosophique ou anthropologique, celles qui portent sur les techniques de la voix et du corps (gestes, mimiques, postures), comme éléments pédagogiques, demeurent marginales » (extrait de l’avant-propos, p. 7)

A discourse analytic framework for conversational engagement in online discussion tasks
Shona Whyte's insight:

I heard this presentation at EuroCALL in the Netherlands this summer.  Very interesting work on the characterisation of online interactions in discourse analytic terms.  One practical goal is a framework that allows teachers and researchers to distinguish successful from less successful online interaction, which at present we feel intuitively but struggle to demonstrate.

Learning Theory & SLA: undergraduate course | TELT | Scoop.it

 This course investigates the learning of foreign, or second, languages from four different perspectives, using an online e-learning resource to explore behaviourism, cognitivism, constructivism and socio-constructivism.

 

The course presents each theory in terms of general learning, then as it applies to language, including major figures and key concepts for each.
