Recent research projects
- Clare Conway, Heather Richards, and Annelies Roskvist have recently completed a Ministry of Education funded project on an Evaluation of the Teacher and Professional Development Languages (TPDL) in years 7-10 and the impact on language learning opportunities and outcomes for students, led by Dr Sharon Harvey. Findings have been presented at the NZALT International Conference, Wellington 2008; CLESOL Conference, Auckland 2008; ALANZ AALA Conference, Auckland 2009.
- Clare Conway and Heather Richards completed a project on transfer of learning from language teacher education courses into teaching practice. English language teachers from China on a professional development course in New Zealand completed on-course and end-of-course reflections on their learning. These reflections were compared with their pre-course needs analysis and the post-course reflections the teachers made once they were back in China to find common themes and perceptions of transfer of learning. Findings have been published in Selected Papers from the Fourth International Conference on Language Teacher Education, Minnesota 2005.
