An Interview with Penny Ur: Darren Elliott

An Interview with Penny Ur: Darren Elliott | TELT | Scoop.it

Darren Elliott says: "I had great opportunity to meet one of my ELT heroes, Penny Ur, when she visited Japan for the JALT National Conference in Kobe in the Autumn of 2013. Her plenary went over very well, and I spoke to her after she had given another talk to a packed room. You can see the slides from those talks here, but first please check out the interview."

Paradox of globalisation: Claire Kramsch interviewed by Darren Elliott

Paradox of globalisation: Claire Kramsch interviewed by Darren Elliott | TELT | Scoop.it

Recorded after Kramsch' 2014 JALT National conference in Tsukuba, Japan

Shona Whyte's insight:

30 minute interview with the top-flight applied linguist - interesting personal background on her experience with English, French, German in Europe and the US, and how personal and practical questions intersected with nascent field of applied linguistics in the 1970s.

 

Soundbite from her JALT plenary: "borders define who we are and distinguish us from others, but can also constrain us."

 

Paradox of globalisation: increased access leads to (illusion of understanding one another, negation of individual uniqueness and so) greater isolation and fragmentation
