The Value of Project Work in INSET.
Sunderland, Jane; Toncheva, Elizabeth
Project Work is increasingly being used in In-service Teacher Education courses for English-as-a-foreign-language teachers for the purposes of both language improvement and learning about English language teaching. At the Institute for English Language Education, Lancaster University, the intended purpose of Project Work is primarily the latter. However, a questionnaire study of INSET course tutors and participants that showed Project Work to be well received also indicated it to be of value largely because it addresses the INSET participant in several roles, i.e., as teacher of English, teacher of learners, researcher, learner of English, writer, and INSET course participant.
