Title: Research on Mother Tongue Education in a Comparative International Perspective
Subtitle: Theoretical and methodological issues.
Series Title: Utrecht Studies in Language and Communication Vol. 20
Description:

Pioneering in the comparison of standard language teaching in Europe, the
International Mother tongue Education Network (IMEN) in the last
twenty-five years stimulated experts from more than fifteen European
countries to participate in a range of research projects in this field of
qualitative educational analyses. The volume "Research on mother tongue
education in a comparative international perspective – Theoretical and
methodological issues" documents theoretical principals and methodological
developments that during the last decades shaped IMEN research and may
enlarge the fundaments of comparative qualitative research in language
education in a seminal way. The topics of this volume include

*IMEN’s aims, points of departure, history and methodology
*Research on the professional practical knowledge of MTE-teachers
*innovation, key incident analysis and international triangulation
*Positioning in theory and practice

Also included: the IMEN bibliography 1984-2004 which supplies a complete
picture of IMEN research activities from the beginning.
