ELT events and the gender balance of speakers (Tessa Woodward) | < ELT Research 1 > | Scoop.it
Been to an ELT event lately? Lots of women teachers there? Quite a few women presenting workshops too? Great! How about the plenary speakers? One woman and four men, you say. Hmmm. That’s a pity! Why is gender balance at ELT events so important? Well, let’s go back to basics. Many teachers of EFL/TESOL are…

Methods in Action: Creative Visual Methods | SAGE Connection – Insight | < ELT Research 1 > | Scoop.it
A prime enemy of the best research is ‘the expectation.’ Researchers expect certain results or answers, and by Jove, they find them. Or they are familiar with the research terrain, and grow complacent in what they look for (or ignore what’s before their noses). If only someone could, as the old cliché goes, ‘draw a picture’ of what’s really being examined.

Researchers can predict when a student's mind is wandering. What should we do about it? | < ELT Research 1 > | Scoop.it
For some education experts, “personalized” learning isn’t only about figuring out how to customize the content of a lesson for each student, but also about how a student is taught. Many students are zoning out even when the instructional content is more or less right. They’re just not in the mood to focus and study. …

The best way to teach

The best way to teach | < ELT Research 1 > | Scoop.it

However, teaching methods are more amenable to experiment than curriculum content and so I find myself discussing them more often.
