The education of language teachers: instruction or conversation?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
