The role of Research in English Language Teaching and Teacher Education

Organised by the Research SIG
The IATEFL ReSIG PCE 2020 brings together researchers, language teachers and teacher educators who are interested in the role of research in English language teaching and teacher education. The event has two strands. While Strand A focuses on research in language teaching as part of developing research-related pedagogical competences in school or university classroom settings, Strand B considers research in the context of formal teacher education, highlights practices around research in various teacher education programs, and considers the role of research in continuing professional development. The PCE aims to explore these topics in-depth.

The PCE starts with Strand A, with the plenary by Sarah Mercer on ELT research followed by poster presenters. In the afternoon, after the plenary talk by Maggie Kubanyiova on research in teacher education, presenters deliver their posters on the same topic. Potential topics for each strand include the following:

Strand A: Research in English Language Teaching
  • What and how to do research in language teaching
  • Who should do research in language teaching
  • Why research language teaching
  • When, where, how often to do research in language teaching
Strand B: Research in Teacher Education
  • Research during a BA, MA and Ph.D. in ELT
  • Research within teacher education programmes
  • Research for continuing teacher education and development
