  1. Communities of Practice: Repositioning the role of the Teaching Practicum in an Initial teacher Education Program.

    Bearing in mind that the school contexts are dynamic, teaching and learning practices should be dynamic too. This means, understanding teaching from what Giroux (1998) has named “a form of cultural politics…that takes seriously relations of race, class, gender and power in the production and legitimation of meaning and experience (p. xii). Therefore, there is a situated need to reconceptualise what the teaching practicum or the pedagogical experience should entail in language teacher education programs in the local context, what the school contexts expect from them, what cooperating teachers and mentors consider relevant in their process of accompanying them and how to go beyond the hegemonic practices (new educational policies reforms, MEN, -2016), that are often focused on a very instrumental view of second language teaching, concentrating the attention on language certification levels adopted from the Common European Framework of Reference (2001), neglecting issues that tackle “...

  2. Peer-coaching as a path to the assessment of teachers

    The following proposal stems from the realization that teachers’ teaching practices betterment may go in parallel with a strong peer-assessment component. It is said that the factors which positively affect teacher’s change are observation, feedback and practice, (Joyce and Showers, 2002). After developing a needs analysis of teachers’ supervisory activities in a local language school, the author found some resistance towards the supervisory practices carried out there. Thus the exploration of peer-coaching as a means to enhance teachers’ assessment is put forward. The working concept of peer-coaching will be used as stated in Richards and Farrell (2005) That is, a teacher and a colleague who plan to collaborately explore their teaching practices. It is expected that the likely collaborative power relations sustained with a colleague may foster a better understanding of their pedagogical practices.

  3. The Relationship among Public Policies, ELT Methodologies and Pre-service Teachers Knowledge Base

    Colombian experts in ELT and EFL explained that there is a need to analyze the factors that affect pre-service teachers’ performance and knowledge base, ad how this factor has a direct repercussions on curriculum design (Alvarez, 2009; Cardenas & Miranda, 2014; Castellanos, 2013; Guerrero, 2010; Jabba, 2013; Mendieta, 2013; Pineda, 2002).

    This research proposal aims to identify how EFL pre-service teachers’ knowledge base is shaped by global and local education policies, mentor teachers’ teaching methodologies, and their own knowledge base, and the effects of this on EFL profession.

    To gather all the data that for reaching the main goal, researcher will use documentary analysis and narrative inquiry methodology.

    Among the expected results, researcher expected to produce new viewpoints toward the regulation and implementation of agreements and laws that affect directly the ELT profession, to formulate new tapestry that allow the B.A. program adjust their...
