● Challenges and Lessons Learned in Research for the ELT Context
This colloquium will explore the challenges faced by four countries in the CA&CB/Latin America group in the area of research in ELT. Recently, teachers have been under pressure to go into research, a move which is not always as easy as it seems given the conditions in which ELT teachers work in Latin American countries. Each of the participants will present and explain lessons learned from experience as well as the current situation regarding research in the ELT context in their countries, challenges to overcome, the ongoing issues and their expectations for the future in the field.
