“It Won’t Work Here”: Revisiting 

Learner-Centered Language Education

   摘要   

In the 30 years since I published the first book-length treatment of learner-centeredness on language teaching, my thinking on the subject has evolved, but it hasn’t fundamentally changed. 


In the first part of the presentation, I will revisit the concept in the light of current trends such as globalization, technology, and twenty-first century competencies, and I will link it to related concepts such as task- and project-based teaching, experiential learning, learner autonomy, and language learning beyond the classroom. 


In the second part, I want to interrogate a commonly voiced objection to the notion of learner-centeredness: “It’s all very well in theory, but it won’t work here.” I will draw on the experiences and perspectives of teachers from China who have undertaken graduate studies abroad before returning to China. 


In the final part of the talk, I will make a case for changing the Chinese curriculum, and I will present some practical ideas for infusing learner-centeredness into the curriculum.

   题目   

Action Research in the Language Classroom

   摘要   

Action research is a systematic, step-by-step guide that teachers can use to improve the quantity and quality of teaching and learning taking place in their classrooms. 


Teachers first identity an area they would like to change — which does not necessarily need to be a “problem” — then gather classroom data to establish a baseline. 


A series of interventions are then planned, carried out, and evaluated, in relation to the original goals.


In this session, participants will

  • identify an area of classroom change they would like to focus on

  • design methods for observing the current classroom situation

  • design interventions to be implemented

  • gather and analyze data based on these interventions

  • evaluate the outcomes of the intervention

   题目
