English Teachers Sharing - webinar about second language classroom discourse

You are welcome to a meeting of English Teachers Sharing, run by Mälardalens högskola.

English Teachers Sharing encourages bridge building between Higher Education and schools, for development of research and practice, and for quality teacher training and development. This webinar offers the opportunity to share ideas, experiences and concerns about English teaching.

Olcay Sert, Docent in English at Mälardalens högskola, will outline his research and findings from the field of Second Language Classroom Discourse. Olcay currently leads a project (Digi-REFLECT) involving local teachers, student-teachers, and digital tools to aid reflection and feedback practices.

Keynote by Olcay Sert

Recent researchs in the field of (second) language education has emphasized the key role of teachers’ management of classroom interactions in creating opportunities for language learning.

One obvious way to better understand this link between classroom interaction and language learning is to review and reflect on actual teaching practices. To this end, the project, DIGI-Reflect, explores the use of a digital reflection tool with mentors and student-teachers in our partners schools in the region.

The project investigates how our digital reflection framework is used to identify, review, and discuss aspects of English language classroom interaction. In this talk, I will present some of the preliminary findings and exemplify aspects of classroom interaction that promote learner engagement, creating opportunities for learning.

He will also illustrate how mentors, student-teachers, and university teachers work in collaboration to create evidence-based reflection and feedback practices that will contribute to teacher development. He will close the talk by providing recommendations for language teaching and Continuous Professional Development.
