ESJALT Foreign Language Education Workshop 2013: Puzzling about classroom language learning: an Exploratory Practice approach

Date & Time:
Thursday, 5.23.2013
18:00~19:30

Place:
Univ. of Tokushima Josanjima campus
Faculty of IAS, Bldg. #1 Meeting Rm. #2

Title:
Puzzling about classroom language learning: an Exploratory Practice approach

Abstract:
In recent years, Exploratory Practice has developed as a form of ‘inclusive practitioner research’ (Allwright, 2001, 2009; Allwright & Hanks, 2009; Hanks, 2009, 2013; Miller, 2009). Arguing that working for understanding(s) should be put before problem-solving, EP includes teachers and learners as researchers of their own language learning lives. In this interactive workshop we will discuss the principles of Exploratory Practice: what is EP and why does it emphasize puzzlement as an approach?

Participants are invited to consider what puzzles them about their language teaching (and learning) lives. We will then discuss ways of investigating classroom language learning and teaching, using our normal pedagogic practices as tools.
