EFL Teachers' Challenges and Dilemmas in Transferring Theories and Practices Cross-Culturally
Yeh, Hui-chin
Asia Pacific Education Review, v12 n1 p97-104 Mar 2011
This paper explores the performance and shared learning experiences of a group of English as a foreign language (EFL) teachers studying in a U.S.-based graduate program. In order to assimilate the knowledge, a voluntary group was naturally formed outside a graduate course. The group meetings lasted from 4 to 5 hours on a weekly basis during a 13-week semester. The focus of this paper is to report and discuss the challenges and dilemmas facing EFL teachers when transferring new theories and knowledge to participants' home contexts.
