November 28 #LINCchat Summary: Research and Innovation in ELT



How important is it for educators to keep up with current research in ELT? How relevant is ELT research in your own practice? What are some innovations in ELT that have changed/impacted your teaching practice? Have you engaged in action research? What helps and hinders you from incorporating current research and innovation into your classroom practice? How can we know if research is robust and has practical classroom applications?   

In this new format, the questions for this #LINCchat were kindly provided by #LINCchat enthusiasts on @Padlet. Thank-you to the educators who found time during the busy month of November to share their thoughts during this #LINCchat and those who added their thoughts after the chat: @PSCCESOL, @linguaLINC, @literacycaf, @JenArtan, and @thespreadingoak.   

Thank-you also to moderators, Svetlana Lupasco (@StanzaSL) and Bonnie Jean Nicholas (@EALstories) for facilitating the discussion and keeping us on track.
