Exploratory Practice in Language Teaching : Puzzling About Principles and Practices (Paperback) (Judith
About this item
This book tracks the development of Exploratory Practice since the early 1990s as an original form of practitioner research in the field of English language teaching. Drawing on case studies, vignettes and narratives from teachers and learners around the world as they experienced Exploratory Practice in their different contexts, the author explores what practitioners experience when trying it out for the first time, what the principles really mean in practice, and what the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of the Exploratory Practice framework really are. For language professionals considering investigating their classrooms and their teaching/learning practices systematically and thoughtfully, whether for formal study purposes or for personal or professional development, this book offers a thought-provoking and rigorous analysis of the impact of uniting pedagogy with research in creative and innovative ways. It moves from the already original ideas of research-as-practice, towards new ground, arguing for a fresh perspective: (exploratory) practice-as-research.
