What do University Language Teachers Say About Language Teaching Research?
AbstractAlthough the relationship between research and language teaching is often discussed among applied linguists, the views of language teachers are often reported only anecdotally if at all. Our article explores how language teaching colleagues in a Canadian university view this relationship as expressed in open-ended questionnaire responses and contributions to follow-up discussions. We ask what research issues interest colleagues and how teaching insights might contribute to research. Responses proved remarkably full and frank, and our investigation elicited ideas for a collective effort to develop a shared program of language teaching research.
