Welcome Back Event

So what is the Welcome Back event going to be all about? Natasha Loukeri, a TESOL MTh board member and a SEETA representative, explains:

In the EFL world there tends to be a distinction between those carrying out research (specialist academics) and those who are active in the classroom (teachers). Why should this be when most of the observation and research is already done by the active EFL teacher through monitoring, surveys, note taking and so on? How come the findings from these are seldom, if ever, published?
This year at the Welcome Back Event we will be launching the international Small-Scale Research project carried out by SEETA in collaboration with Desmond Thomas (University of Essex). This project aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice and to build on the knowledge that has been accumulated by the practicing teacher.
