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.

Shona Whyte's insight:
Survey by Perez Paredes and colleagues suggests  FL teachers in UK and Spain support technology mediated learning in theory more than in practice, particularly with respect to mobile devices and more sophisticated corpus tools

Short paper on text-to-speech for EFL input with intermediate Brazilian students.

More sites to use for corpus.  What's useful is many of the sites listed mention which language group would find their site useful and why.

Figement et discours spécialisé : Gautier 2017

Ce volume propose un état des lieux de la recherche actuelle sur la mise en oeuvre de la catégorie du figement pour l’analyse des discours spécialisés. Les auteurs articulent l’approche du figement d’une part avec la terminologie en examinant non seulement les modalités de formation des termes, mais aussi leur profil combinatoire, leur rapport à la notion de collocation et leur fonctionnement dans la dénomination. Ils envisagent d’autre part le rôle du figement en discours et dans la phraséo-genèse du texte. Les objets d’études sont variés – textes techniques, textes de presse spécialisée, textes de vulgarisation. Les langues objets sont le français, l’anglais et l’allemand.
