Research and teaching: A teacher’s perspective with Penny Ur


Throughout the course, participants will be introduced to a number of relatively recent research studies (as well as some older ones) on topics relevant to English teaching and learning. We will consider why, how – and, indeed, if – their conclusions may be implemented in our own teaching practice.

Goals of the course

-To familiarize participants with a number of key research studies relevant to English language teaching (mostly, but not all, from the 21st century)

-To share participants’ own experience of using (or not using) research resources in their own teaching

-To discuss the ‘gap’ between research and practice: why don’t teachers use research very much?

-To discuss how research can be used by practitioners through actual studies and suggested implementation strategies

-To suggest ways in which participants can access relevant research within the limitations of a full-time teaching schedule
