Reducing the Gap between Educational Research and Second Language Teachers' Knowledge
Mady, Callie
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v9 n2 p185-206 May 2013
This paper reports on a project created with the view to improving second language teachers' access to research. Following the steps provided in Lavis et al's (2003) knowledge transfer framework, this project provided second language teachers access to applied second language research and researchers. This paper reports on the teachers' conceptual use of the research as collected by means of a pre/post intervention questionnaire. Findings reveal that even simple, short-term interventions have the potential to have an impact on knowledge.
