Farrell, Thomas S. C. – TESL-EJ, 2019
This paper is motived by an email message the author received recently from a practicing, 'well-qualified' (BA and MA in Linguistics and a (200 hundred hour) TESL Certificate) ESL teacher in the US who was reaching out because she felt her training as a teacher had failed her. This prompted the author to reflect on two main inconvenient truths…

Paiz, Joshua M. – TESL-EJ, 2018
As the disciplinary focus on learner agency and autonomy increases, a space for online writing labs (OWLs) is reemerging.

As a longtime instructional designer of online materials, the author has been concerned with issues of accessibility for many years.

Stevens, Vance; Verschoor, Jennifer – TESL-EJ, 2017
According to Dudeney, Hockly, and Pegrum (2013) coding is a deeper skill subsumed under the four main digital literacies of language, connections, information, and (re)design. Coders or programmers are people who write the programmes behind everything we see and do on a computer. Most students spend several hours playing online games, but few know…

Second language (L2) writing instructors have varying tools at their disposal for providing feedback on students' writing, including ones that enable them to provide written and audio feedback in electronic form.

Murphey, Tim – TESL-EJ, 2016
Understandings from the field of social neuroscience can help educators cultivate collaborative students who get excited about learning from one another.

Farrell, Thomas S. C. – TESL-EJ, 2014
There is a longstanding recognition in the field of language education that teachers must continually shape and reshape their knowledge of teaching and learning throughout their careers (Farrell, 2015).

Bard, Rose – TESL-EJ, 2014
Reflecting simply put is the act of thinking about something while seeking a deeper level of understanding. Reflective practice is applying this thinking systematically by making questions, collecting data, and analysing it in order, not to prove something, but to comprehend and act upon reality. It is also an ongoing process that involves…

Stevens, Vance – TESL-EJ, 2014
In this article, Vance Stevens describes how access to what he calls "star performer educators" as either up-­and­-coming in their field, or experienced and polished practitioners, have changed with access to the internet. They are clearly passionate about what they do, and what they do has become second nature. They touch hearts and…

This article begins by critiquing the long-established acronym CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning). We then go on to report on a small-scale study which examines how student non-native speakers of English use a range of digital devices beyond the classroom in both their first (L1) and second (L2) languages. We look also at the extent to…

Vellenga, Heidi – TESL-EJ, 2011
Teaching L2 pragmatics is often not covered in teacher education programs, and is an excellent area for continuing professional development. As part of a larger project on instructed interlanguage pragmatics, volunteer instructor participants were asked to teach a series of lessons on pragmatics to university-aged (19-23) ESL learners in ESL and…

Harrington, Anna M. – TESL-EJ, 2010
Hybrid courses--which replace 20%-80% of class meetings with online activities--are predicted to increase as educators embrace the benefits of blending online technologies with face-to-face class meetings. Also expected to increase are enrollments of ESL/EFL students. As these growth trends intersect, an increased number of ESL/EFL students are…

Ideally, through blogs, students would create content and construct knowledge using the wonders of these publishing tools that abound online. The author definitely believes in the power of blogs to improve students' abilities while learning a second language, in her case, in an EFL context. However, blogging doesn't simply happen. The word has…

Fox, Anne – TESL-EJ, 2008
Talk-radio podcasts, such as "Absolutely Intercultural," which are not overtly pedagogical, can be much more than passive, extended listening practice. This paper describes two examples in which teachers have used the "Absolutely Intercultural" podcast and discusses the different levels of involvement possible with podcasts from listening to…
