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?
