Reflective practice in action: Farrell 2006

Reflective practice, a popular item in current second-language teacher education and development programs, can help bridge the gap between a teacher’s beliefs and classroom practices. This article outlines a case study, highlighting how one teacher of academic writing initiated the exploration of her teaching and how she used classroom observations and oral recall to help her reflect on her practice. Specifically, the exploration sought to outline the teacher’s beliefs about, and classroom practices in, teaching academic writing. It is suggested that oral recall and classroom observations may be effective methods for helping language teach- ers discover the relationship between their beliefs and classroom practices.

EAPing: What else do I not know about...

EAPing: What else do I not know about... | TELT | Scoop.it

I've been a teacher for over 10 years now and I'd never heard of this. It made me wonder about all the other interesting teaching type things I know nothing about - things that other teachers use and don't make a big deal out of but which are really interesting. And rather cheesily, this made me think about CPD and how most of the good stuff comes from other teachers who find something and figure out a way to use it and are then good enough to share it.

Center for Research on Learning and Teaching

A lesson plan is the instructor’s road map of what students need to learn and how it will be done effectively during the class time. Before you plan your lesson, you will first need to identify the learning objectives for the class meeting.  Then, you can design appropriate learning activities and develop strategies to obtain feedback on student learning. A successful lesson plan addresses and integrates these three key components:

Andrée Tiberghien USAGES DE LA VIDÉO : de la recherche sur les pratiques de classe à la formation des enseignants.

Directrice de recherche émérite au CNRS, UMR ICAR, Université de Lyon (ENS de Lyon, Université Lyon 2)

Les enregistrements vidéo de classe sont de plus en plus utilisés en formation des enseignants.
Nous présenterons le cas où la vidéo est dans un premier temps utilisé pour la recherche sur les pratiques de classe d’un point de vue didactique et dans un deuxième temps devient une des sources de conceptions de ressources pour la formation des maîtres.
Nous discuterons des liens entre les points de vue pris pour analyser les pratiques de classe et celles pour la formation à des pratiques d’enseignement. Pour cela nous nous appuierons sur quelques travaux de recherche qui étudient les relations entre l’analyse des classes, la formation et le développement des pratiques en classe dans le cas de l’enseignement scientifique.
