Methods Matter: Teacher-Trainee Perspectives on Language Teaching Methods in a South Korean TESOL Certificate Program
Jobbitt, Todd
Online Submission, International Journal of Teaching, Education and Language Learning v1 n1 p38-60 Aug 2014
The purpose of this survey was to ascertain Korean teacher-trainees' perspectives on the awareness, likability, perceived usefulness and prospective application of varied language teaching methods that they had been taught in a sixteen-week language teaching methodology course. What did the students think about these methods? Will students actually try out new methods, or techniques from these methods, in their present or future teaching contexts? Qualitative and quantitative results show that although students overwhelmingly had limited prior exposure to a variety of teaching methods and shared a heavy reliance on a select few methods, there was a strong propensity for future learning using the methods and techniques presented in the course.
