La fabrique de l'action enseignante

La fabrique de l'action enseignante | TELT | Scoop.it

L’agir professoral en classe de langue : les savoirs d’action qui sont à l’arrière-plan de l’agir, ce que d’aucuns appellent “la pensée enseignante” (Tochon, 2000).
 

Placé devant une trace de son action (image filmée notamment), le professeur convertit cette action en discours. Il est alors amené à proposer des significations. Ces significations sont à entendre ici comme ce que l’acteur propose comme interprétations quand il revient sur son action, face au chercheur et à lui-même. Un système complexe, à forte dimension linguistique et portant sur des discours, se dessine alors: il y a le discours de l’enseignant sur son action ; celui qui porte sur son propre discours, ainsi que sur les discours des apprenants ; il y a enfin l’analyse que fait le chercheur de tous ces discours, au travers du sien.

 

Quels enjeux, et quels apports à la didactique des langues du courant dit de la "pensée enseignante" et de ses méthodes ?

English needs of young European adults: research survey, Newcastle

English needs of young European adults: research survey, Newcastle | TELT | Scoop.it

This research project aims to provide a broad summary of current student and teacher perceptions of the contemporary English language needs of young adults in Europe, and the implications of this for ELT.

If you are an English language teacher (i.e., ELT / TESOL) working in Europe, you can help by completing a short questionnaire which should take you approximately twenty minutes. Find out more >>

Vocabulary learning in pair versus small group work: Fernández Dobao, 2014

Learners working in groups of four produced more lexical LREs [Language Related Episodes, i.e., discussions of vocabulary] than those workings in pairs and were also significantly more successful at solving them.

 

The qualitative analysis of the LREs showed that groups were more likely to achieve a correct solution to their problems because they shared more lexical knowledge, since up to four different learners could pool their individual knowledge and resources to solve each problem.

 

Although a larger number of participants represents more resources, it also means fewer opportunities to speak. […] LREs were relatively often solved by two or three of the members of the group while the others participated as observers. However, this did not have a significant impact on learners’ rate of retention of the lexical knowledge co-constructed in the LRE […O]n average, learners working in small groups were as likely to retain the lexical items discussed in their interaction as those working in pairs.

 

Since groups produced significantly more lexical LREs than pairs and, in particular, more correctly resolved LREs, this means that overall small group interaction resulted in more instances of L2 vocabulary learning than pair interaction. 

Shona Whyte's insight:

Very interesting, carefully controlled large-scale study of US undergraduate anglophone learners of Spanish with a (rare) practical implication for the second language classroom: prefer small group work over group work because pooled resources lead to more learning for all.  [Thanks to the author for sharing]

Shona Whyte's insight:

I'm using these short clips for an interpreting class: students watch the video, take notes, and try to summarise in English.  We record their English translation, usually one sentence per student, and then students listen to the audio, match their transcription to the French original sentence by sentence, and make corrections where necessary.
