About the webinar:
Using a corpus-based methodology, this talk will explore a range of reflective practice discourses from the context of English language teacher education programmes. Starting from the corpus, it will begin by examining the Teacher Education Corpus data through a phraseological lens, with a more detailed focus on the spoken interactions of teaching practice feedback. This will reveal specific and relative preferences for the use of certain types of linguistic chunks in this context. Secondly, starting from theoretical frameworks in teacher education, it will investigate in some detail the language used to express teacher identity in a range of contexts which
represent both novice and experienced teachers.
