Contextually Responsive Transfer: Perceptions of NNES on an ESL/EFL Teacher Training Programme
Liyanage, Indika; Bartlett, Brendan John
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v24 n7 p1827-1836 Oct 2008
Post-training reflections from nine overseas NNES students were recorded in relation to the extent to which they perceived potential applications of what they had learned in a Contextually Responsive Teacher Training (CRTT) programme in the learning-teaching contexts into which they were returning as English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) teachers. Pragmatic issues in home contexts concerning resources generally and textbooks particularly were seen to threaten the viability of what was learned. Significantly, all participants projected disillusion with home country context rather than with foreign country training as a personal resolution of the mismatch. Implications are drawn for preventative redesign in relation to the Australian programmes.
