Issues & Methods in the Study of Language Teacher Cognition
The study of what language teachers think, know, believe and do has become a key area of research in the last 10 years. The large body of work that now exists shows that teachers' cognitions influence how they teach, how they learn, and how they respond to innovation. In this course we will examine both the key topics this research has examined as well as the research methods used in doing so. It will be of particular interest to researchers, teacher educators, programme managers and policy makers working in first, second and foreign language education contexts.
