hartle 2018-02-07T19:46:27 #eltchat maybe teachers want to develop discussion and reflection rather than research per se

SueAnnan 2018-02-07T19:49:22 @hartle Does the pressure to publish mean that badly conducted research slips through the net too? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2018-02-07T19:50:04 @MoreMsJackson @RobertTaylorELT That's another issue - low language levels don't allow for comprehension of dense text #eltchat
