Investigating English Language Learning and Teaching


File Size: 1.98 Mb

Description
When language teachers are acquainted with the findings of cutting-edge research in the field of second or foreign language acquisition, many of them just shrug their shoulders or simply ignore them with a wave of a hand, apparently thinking there is nothing researchers can tell them about effective teaching practice that they would not already know themselves. By the same token, there are far too many scholars who refuse to take seriously the findings of the research projects that practitioners conduct in their own classrooms, pointing to insufficient scientific rigor, lack of generalizability, failure to employ adequate statistical tools and many other flaws. While such sentiments are indicative of the somewhat inevitable rift between theory and research, on the one hand, and the actual act of teaching, on the other, they also point to the pressing need to bring the worlds of researchers and practitioners closer together. This is precisely the goal that IATEFL Research Special Interest Group has been vigorously pursuing for many years and, among the numerous activities it engages in, it is undoubtedly its annual conference devoted to different aspects of research into English language learning and teaching that serves this purpose particularly admirably. In October 2007 the event was held in Poland, being organized by the Department of Modern Languages of the State School of Higher Professional Education in Konin in cooperation with the English Department of the Faculty of Pedagogy and Fine Arts of Adam Mickiewicz University in Kalisz. Its theme was Exploring English Language Learning and Teaching, it attracted almost 70 researchers and practitioners from across the world, and provided a forum for almost 40 presentations reporting the findings of various empirical investigations.
