I will be presenting some of the findings of my doctoral research at the upcoming AAAL conference in Toronto (March 21-24, 2015). If you are attending AAAL and are interested in pronunciation teaching and language teacher cognition/education, I suggest you join my session. Here is the abstract:
Exploring Cognition Development of Pre-service and In-service Pronunciation Teachers: A Qualitative Case Study
This presentation discusses a qualitative case study exploring the cognition knowledge, attitudes and beliefs) development of ten inexperienced (pre-service) and five experienced (in-service) pronunciation teachers during a graduate course on pronunciation pedagogy offered at an Australian institution. Based on research findings, recommendations for training pronunciation teachers are made.
I am a Lecturer in TESOL at the University of Wollongong in Australia. This blog is a reflection of my journey as a researcher, L2 teacher educator, and language teacher.
