Teachers’ beliefs and practices regarding learner autonomy

Borg, S., & Al-Busaidi, S. (2012). Teachers’ beliefs and practices regarding learner autonomy. ELT Journal, 66(3), 283-292.

 

Abstract

This paper describes a project about the beliefs and practices regarding learner autonomy (LA) held by English language teachers in a university language centre. A distinctive feature of this project was the manner in which professional development workshops for the teachers were informed by prior research about these teachers’ perspectives on LA. Following a brief rationale for the project, we outline its research component before illustrating how this shaped the teacher workshops. The model for relating research and professional development we illustrate here is one that we believe can be applied more generally in supporting teacher development and institutional change in ELT.

The English Grammar Profile allows us to see how learners develop competence in grammatical form and meaning, as well as pragmatic appropriateness, as they move up the CEFR levels. This provides us with typical, world-wide grammar profiles for each level.

Annotating speech errors and disfluencies: technical report (Cambridge)

Caines, Nichols & Buttery; Dec 2017

This document presents our guidelines for the annotation of errors and disfluencies in transcriptions of speech. There is a well-established precedent for annotating errors in written texts but the same is not true of speech transcriptions. We describe our coding scheme, discuss examples and difficult cases, and introduce new codes to deal with features characteristic of speech.
