Key concepts in ELT: Taking stock (Graham Hall)

Free (limited) access to this ELT article:

 

This article identifies patterns and trends within ‘Key Concepts in ELT’, both since the inception of the feature in ELT Journal in 1993 and during the 17 years of the current editorship. After outlining the aims of the series, the article identifies key themes that have emerged over time, exploring the links between ‘Key Concepts’ pieces and the trends and developments in ELT more generally. It finds that although earlier articles tended to focus on ‘teaching’, ‘learning’, and ‘language’, more recent pieces have examined issues surrounding ‘teachers’, ‘learners’, and the ‘social context’ of ELT. The article then considers the ‘reach’, readership, and potential relevance of ‘Key Concepts’ to debates and practices within ELT, drawing upon publisher records of ELT Journal’s most accessed articles online and most cited articles, and concludes with a discussion of possible future directions for the series.

Also includes this link

Fait assez rare pour être souligné, une institution conseille ses publics et utilisateurs sur la manière d’être présent sur les réseaux sociaux.

Il s’agit du service de communication de l’Université de Genève qui propose, au sein d’une rubrique spécifique : médias sociaux : conseils pour les utilisateurs, des documents, guides et tutoriels pour prendre en main et utiliser ces services en ligne avec responsabilité et aussi pertinence des actions.

Ces documents sont destinés aux services de l’université, enseignants, chercheurs, personnels administratifs et étudiants. Ils peuvent être adaptés notamment pour des associations, TPE-PME ou des institutions.

Language Testing in Europe: Time for a New Framework?
International Conference hosted by Universiteit Antwerpen
27-29 May 2013

 

We hereby extend a cordial invitation to attend our Second International Conference on Language Testing. This conference will bring together practitioners, policy makers and researchers in order to discuss the following issues related to the use of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) in language testing.

• Competence and performance
What is the link between ‘can do’ performance statements and areas of linguistic knowledge? To what extent can or should the levels be made more explicit in terms of required vocabulary and grammar?

• Degree of difficulty of the levels
How can we make sure that our tests are measuring at the CEFR levels we claim they are? What evidence do we have to support our claims?

• Test purpose
Why are we testing? What kind of decisions will be made on the basis of information collected via the test? What will be the consequences of these decisions?

• Practicality
How do we link our tests to the CEFR? How practical, applicable and operational is the CEFR for concrete language testing situations?
You are invited to submit a proposal for a practice-related paper, a research paper, a poster session or a symposium. The scientific committee will designate three submissions as ‘Selected Plenaries’.

Please visit our website (http://www.ua.ac.be/main.aspx?c=.LT-CEFR2013) for any information regarding submission, calendar, venue and programme.
Looking forward to meeting you in Antwerp.

PÉDAGOGIE + NUMÉRIQUE = APPRENTISSAGES 2.0 : Rémi Thibert

Rémi Thibert (dossier d'actualité de l'IFE, novembre 2012)

 

"Les disciplines les plus concernées par les innovations sont les sciences et les langues 

(maternelles et étrangères) […] Beaucoup d’innovations ont un caractère pluridisciplinaire. Une
évolution notable réside dans le changement de posture adopté par les enseignants qui se considèrent moins comme des passeurs de savoir et plutôt comme des conseilleurs, orientateurs ou guides."

Cracking the code: listening using "wrong lyrics" (Mark Hancock)

Cracking the code: listening using "wrong lyrics" (Mark Hancock) | TELT | Scoop.it

Carolyn Kerr's ELT blog post on listening problems (with French L1 learners):

 

Certain sounds emerged as common problem areas:

/n/ – all of the learners – ‘some flowers’ – ‘sun flowers’

/ʤ/ – five of the learners – ‘jeep’ – ‘cheap’

/ɑ:/ – five of the learners – ‘hat’ – ‘heart’

/h/ – five of the learners – ‘ill’ – ‘hill’

 

If anyone has any insights or observations around these clusters of problem sounds in terms of sound reception I’d be very glad to hear about it! They seem to be ‘typical’ problem sounds for French speakers but I’d love to know more if anyone has any ideas.

Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology

My paper on "Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology."  (Actes du colloque FICEL sur l'évolution et professionalisation des enseignants de langues)

 

The paper discusses key competences required for teaching languages with technology, and concludes with examples of projects combining research, pedagogy and technology including:

 

"the EU lifelong learning project iTILT, Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching (Whyte, Cutrim Schmid & van Hazebrouck, 2011). In this project, language researchers and teacher trainers offer professional development in the use of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) to practising language teachers with learners at all levels. After initial training, class sessions at the board are filmed, and followed by debriefing sessions with both teachers and learners. Short video clips of selected lesson episodes are then presented on the project website together with lesson plans, lesson files, and teacher and learner commentary to aid other teachers in using the IWB for language teaching. The project website also includes a variety of related resources and dissemination tools, and as teacher training and data collection proceed, the project partners inform their networks of developments via blogs and social media. Thus teaching, training and research are closely interrelated as the project teachers develop their digital  and pedagogical skills, the researchers observe classroom interaction and teacher development, and trainers create resources for future professional development using feedback from the project teachers."

 

The iTILT website (http://itilt.eu) will soon go live, allowing language teachers and teacher educators access to this free open educational resource on the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in communicative language teaching.
