The future of ESP studies: Christopher Williams, GERAS 2014

The future of ESP studies: Christopher Williams, GERAS 2014 | TELT | Scoop.it

1. – the need for deeper engagement with non-linguistic fields of knowledge (medicine, law, engineering, economics etc.) and for more dialogue with practitioners operating in such fields in order to help us linguists to focus on the real issues of communication and text analysis in ESP contexts; 

2. – the importance of studying and teaching popularized forms of specialized discourse; 

3. – exploring (and exploiting) further the phenomenon of multimodality in relation to ESP studies; 

4. – the potential of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL / EMILE) as a tool for research and for language teaching methodology in the field of ESP; 

5. – the overriding need to ensure that future ESP studies focus on what is genuinely innovative, relevant, and interesting to readers and practitioners. In brief, how to avoid what John Sinclair once defined as ‘fishing expeditions’ often resulting from an over-reliance on corpora and statistics in general.

Textbook Survey

Textbook Survey | TELT | Scoop.it
We are working on a classroom research project on how pupils learn English in French secondary schools. We are interested in what materials teachers use, how they teach, and how the pupils learn. For our first step, we are just looking for information on which textbooks teachers are using to teach English in French collèges and lycées.

If you are currently teaching English in a secondary school in France, we would like you to answer the following questions. We think our survey will take around 5 minutes and we would be very grateful for your input.

Technologies for foreign language learning: a review: Golonka et al., 2014

Technologies for foreign language learning: a review: Golonka et al., 2014 | TELT | Scoop.it

(2014). Technologies for foreign language learning: a review of technology types and their effectiveness. Computer Assisted Language Learning: Vol. 27, No. 1, pp. 70-105. doi: 10.1080/09588221.2012.700315

Shona Whyte's insight:

Library study of CALL research with some harsh conclusions:

 

"most CALL studies seem to focus on either describing the affordances offered by particular types of technology or measuring their effects on students’ affective reactions,
such as increased motivation or increased enjoyment of learning activities. Although describing technology’s uses and students’ enjoyment when using it are admirable and useful goals, it remains unclear to what extent the activities supported by the technology or the potential increased motivation attributed to
them actually increase students’ learning. One might make the argument that, for example, increased motivation and increased options for self-selecting study activities will lead to deeper engagement with language, more time on task, and,
thus, increased proficiency. However, for most technologies, actual increases in learning or proficiency have yet to be demonstrated" p. 92


"the next phase of CALL research should focus on how to optimize L2 learning in two distinct but related areas. The first area involves affordances that technologies offer by applying fundamental principles of learning from SLA and cognitive psychology (for example, optimal retrieval intervals). The second should
investigate the specific characteristics of technologies that may have differential effects on long-term storage in memory" p. 93
