Team Teaching and Team Learning in the Language Classroom: Collaboration for innovation in ELT


Add your own review!

Overview

This book reignites discussion on the importance of collaboration and innovation in language education. The pivotal difference highlighted in this volume is the concept of team learning through collaborative relationships such as team teaching. It explores ways in which team learning happens in ELT environments and what emerges from these explorations is a more robust concept of team learning in language education. Coupled with this deeper understanding, the value of participant research is emphasised by defining the notion of 'team' to include all participants in the educational experience. Authors in this volume position practice ahead of theory as they struggle to make sense of the complex phenomena of language teaching and learning. The focus of this book is on the nexus between ELT theory and practice as viewed through the lens of collaboration. The volume aims to add to the current knowledge base in order to bridge the theory-practice gap regarding collaboration for innovation in language classrooms.

Reviews

Team Teaching and Team Learning in the Language Classroom not only provides a comprehensive review of team teaching over its initial decades and valuable classroom strategies and techniques, it also highlights innovations in content learning, the integration of new technologies, curriculum design and teacher training all in the context of furthering education as a collaborative social endeavor. In the midst of top-down policy interventions in education, this volume confronts the trends toward standardization and personal competitiveness by embracing the social nature of education, collaboration and innovation, and provides a framework for quality learner outcomes in an array of language learning contexts throughout Asia and Europe. - Larry Walker, Kyoto Prefectural University Overall this book succeeds in its purpose: The connection between practice and theory and how theoretical models can be applied to team teaching are explained. The importance of creating social awareness is evident in the overarching theme of collaboration. Throughout the chapters, it is made clear that communication and collaboration between educators can be a powerful tool for learning. Using some of the ideas outlined in this book, teachers can develop ideas for collaboration with their students and fellow teachers. - Steven G. B. MacWhinnie, JALT Journal
