Woodward, Tessa, Ed.
Teacher Trainer, v14 n1-3 Spr-Aut 2000
This journal is for those interested in modern language teacher training. Several aims are to provide a forum for ideas, information, and news, to put trainers in touch with each other, and to give those involved with teacher training a feeling of how trainers in other fields operate as well as building up a pool of experience within modern language teacher training. A variety of formats is used, including articles, letters, comment, quotation, cartoon, interview, spoof, and haiku ideas. Regular features include the following: "Course Report"; "Trainee Voices"; "Just for Interest"; "Conference Report"; "Publications Received"; "Training around the World"; "People Who Train People"; "Trainer Background"; "Q and A"; "Language Matters"; "Session Report"; and "Process Options." Topics covered in volume 14 focus on the following issues: an honest account of one trainer's change, regional teacher trainers debate, teachers discuss a visit by an outside trainer, moving from direct to indirect peer mentoring, getting the most out of pre-service courses, getting the most out of in-service workshops, teacher beliefs, comments on the regional teachers debate, training for the gifted, developing trainer observation and feedback skills, peer mediation and conflict resolution, peers help each other to write dissertations, the importance of trust in working with teachers, tempting the reluctant to professional workshops, the new British institute of English language training, and native and non-native teachers teaching side by side.
