The Education of Language Teachers: Instruction or Conversation?
ELT Journal, v69 n3 p297-307 Jul 2015
The research reported here outlines how an emphasis on dialogic interaction and exploratory talk during post-teaching practice discussions can be beneficial to pre-service second language teacher education. The article examines the ways in which such an approach may help promote long-term reflective practice and how enquiry-based talk raises awareness of the complexity involved in developing pedagogic expertise.
