Becoming a (Better) Language Teacher
This qualitative-interpretative study investigates a cohort of twelve English teachers enrolled in the M.A. programme ,E-LINGO - Teaching English to Young Learners'. The aim is to explore if, how and under what circumstances classroom action research, a core component of the pro gramme, can foster teacher learning. Since the participants have different educational and cultu ral back-grounds and various levels of professional experience in the ?eld of language teaching, they offer different perspectives on the object of research. Data from multiple sources are triangulated and interpreted to elicit indicators for learning and development in the form of critical learning incidents. The results suggest that not only cogni tive, but also social and affective factors constitute the complex process of teacher learning.
