garymotteram 2:01 PM #eltchat The fact that we have to ask this question at all seems to me to be symptomatic of a lack of interesέΑο (cont) http://deck.ly/~022gq
cherrymp 2:01 PM research makes elt professional, accountable #eltchat

timjulian60 2:02 PM If research gives insight into how  stds learn which we can feed into our classroom practice I can think of nothing more valuable #eltchat
esolcourses 2:02 PM would definitely say  there is a place for research, but I also think that all research is subjective to a certain extent #eltchat
barbsaka 2:02 PM Sure :-) RT @hartle: Can we talk abt different types of research... quantative vs. qualitative? #ELTChat
rliberni 2:02 PM RT @TyKendall: #ELTCHAT just woke up from a nap, dont expect anything coherent for 10 mins :-)

Shaunwilden 2:03 PM RT @TyKendall: #ELTCHAT how do you define research first of all? does reading the latest edition of ET professional constitute research?
TyKendall 2:03 PM #ELTCHAT how do you define research first of all? does reading the latest edition of ET professional constitute research?
esolcourses 2:03 PM I also think the formal research model is outdated in a lot of ways, & could do with overhauling to get in step with current times #eltchat
Marisa_C 2:03 PM RT @hartle: I think qualitative research is more useful to me often, as statistics can often be skewed in quantative surveys etc. #ELTChat

CeciELT 2:04 PM About to start a class... will catch up with #eltchat with summary and transcript. This seems to be my fate this semester.  :-(
ozsolmaz 2:04 PM @DaveDodgson definitely. and there is a gap in the field when it comes to self-development by means of internet technologies #ELTchat
rliberni 2:04 PM On a day to day level we should be resrching all the time what wks what doesn't, how to impve things & keep up with the big stuff 2 #eltchat
garymotteram 2:04 PM #eltchat If we see research as a way of reflecting on teaching and the learning, then we start seeing why is is important.

esolcourses 2:04 PM RT @Marisa_C: RT @hartle: I think qualitative research is more useful to me often, as statistics can often be skewed in quantative surveys etc. #ELTChat
cherrymp 2:04 PM RT @barbsaka: Even if teachers don't have means to conduct research, we all benefit from it #eltchat > true esp wen u've access to it
Marisa_C 2:04 PM Might be useful to clarify difference between "qualitative" and "quantitative" research - all OK with terms? #ELTchat
hartle 2:04 PM RT @esolcourses: I also think the formal research model is outdated in a lot of ways, & could do with overhauling ... #eltchat I agree
Shaunwilden 2:04 PM @esolcourses So what do you suggest? #eltchat
cherrymp 2:04 PM @hartle true statistics can b lot confusing for many #eltchat
barbsaka 2:04 PM Even if teachers don't have means to conduct research, we all benefit from it #eltchat
DaveDodgson 2:04 PM @ozsolmaz Sounds interesting - I think self-development is becoming increasingly important #ELTchat

barbsaka 2:05 PM @cherrymp access to research is a pet peeve of mine--often limited if teachers aren't at university #eltchat
rliberni 2:05 PM RT @esolcourses: I also think the formal research model is outdated in a lot of ways, & could do with overhauling to get in step with current times #eltchat
Marisa_C 2:05 PM @rliberni Agree that teachers can be their own researchers (on a small scale ) every single time they teach  #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 2:05 PM Don't good teachers always do reasearch to the extent they gather info, reflect and act upon it? #eltchat
ozsolmaz 2:05 PM RT @garymotteram #eltchat If we see research as a way of reflecting on teaching and the learning, then we start seeing why is is important.
cioccas 2:05 PM RT @garymotteram: #eltchat If we see research as a way of reflecting on teaching and the learning, then we start seeing why is is important.
cherrymp 2:05 PM @CeciELT thanks to that mode too - wt's missed is the live action dnt worry #eltchat
hartle 2:05 PM I was thinking of thinks like "talk aloud protocols" or journals and portfolios, or even class studies  #eltchat
rliberni 2:05 PM RT @Marisa_C: Might be useful to clarify difference between "qualitative" and "quantitative" research - all OK with terms? #ELTchat
DaveDodgson 2:05 PM What is the purpose of our research? Important question as the idea of proving/finding best methods is out-dated #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2:05 PM RT @garymotteram: #eltchat If we see research as a way of reflecting on teaching and the learning, then we start seeing why is is important.
rliberni 2:05 PM RT @ozsolmaz: @DaveDodgson definitely. and there is a gap in the field when it comes to self-development by means of internet technologies #ELTchat

esolcourses 2:05 PM @Shaunwilden I think it needs to be less formal, more open, broadened out - people shouldn't have to pay to access knowledge #eltchat
rliberni 2:06 PM RT @Marisa_C: @OUPELTGlobal But how can teacher research feed into more organised research - isn't this important too? #eltchat
sandymillin 2:06 PM For the next hour my tweets will be dedicated to #eltchat on whether Ts should be involved in action research
Marisa_C 2:06 PM @OUPELTGlobal But how can teacher research feed into more organised research - isn't this important too? #eltchat
BobK99 2:06 PM RT @hartle: RT @esolcourses: ... formal resrch model is outdated in a lot of ways, & c do with overhauling ... #eltchat I agree! Hence.../
barbsaka 2:06 PM @CeciELT Perhaps when the time changes again it will be easier for you #eltchat
garymotteram 2:06 PM #eltchat There is no 'best method', but there are still good and bad methods.
rliberni 2:06 PM RT @OUPELTGlobal: Don't good teachers always do reasearch to the extent they gather info, reflect and act upon it? #eltchat they should!
Marisa_C 2:06 PM RT @OUPELTGlobal: Don't good teachers always do reasearch to the extent they gather info, reflect and act upon it? #eltchat > Indeed
OUPELTGlobal 2:07 PM RT @TyKendall: #ELTCHAT does not doing research make you a bad teacher, or just a busy one? #eltchat
cioccas 2:07 PM RT @Shaunwilden: Are we using research as a very broad term here? #eltchat < Seems like it, not a bad thing as we need all types
Marisa_C 2:07 PM We very often tend to challenge the gurus of our profession with the  Q "Is there any research to back up your claims? " #ELTchat
barbsaka 2:07 PM RT @garymotteram: #eltchat There is no 'best method', but there are still good and bad methods.
DaveDodgson 2:07 PM @barbsaka @cherrymp Yes, I doubt I would have access to any research (or even think of accessing it) if I wasn't doing an MA #ELTchat
barbsaka 2:07 PM @cherrymp I love the open access journals, but miss a good uni library :) #eltchat

cioccas 2:10 PM @cherrymp And with so many journals online, you can't just walk into a library and browse anymore #ELTchat
rliberni 2:10 PM RT @dreadnought001: How many teachers have access to written journals (TESOL Q'ly, ELT Journal etc) in their school? I'm lucky I'm at uni and do.. #eltchat
barbsaka 2:10 PM Well, we have most of an hour left, so perhaps we ought to break this topic down? #eltchat
rliberni 2:10 PM I meant if we are teachers we shld be learning the two go hand in hand! #eltchat
DaveDodgson 2:10 PM @harrisonmike I guess it depends on what you are doing with it! Using it for reflection? Yes. Sharing links? Maybe not ;) #ELTchat

JoHart 2:57 PM @barbsaka Thank you - I love you guys & your  #eltchat when I can catch them they are always so lively & challenge the mind :)
vbenevolofranca 2:57 PM RT @barbsaka: @Marisa_C seems like most prof organizations have 2 tiers--vetted journal for "hard" research, and newsletters for action-type  #ELTchat
cioccas 2:57 PM RT @DaveDodgson: @CoffeeAddictMe But reflecting on why smt 'failed' is often as useful as reporting on success #ELTchat
cherrymp 2:57 PM RT @Marisa_C: Which journals would you recommend reporting research of value to a classroom teacher ? #ELTchat
barbsaka 2:57 PM RT @Marisa_C: Which journals would you recommend reporting research of value to a classroom teacher ? #ELTchat
fionamau 2:57 PM RT @Marisa_C: #celt Suggest your top two or three Twitter users to my CELTA trainees pls - RT? #efl #esl #ELTchat Who should they follow?
fionamau 2:57 PM @Marisa_C Only two or  three??? That's hard! They'd be better off joining #eltchat and choosing a few tweeters... so many gems, 3 is too few
garymotteram 2:58 PM #eltchat Most of the journals I read include articles that involve teachers report their research, few are highly academic.
OUPELTGlobal 2:58 PM @CoffeeAddictMe Ah yes, blogs - a good way to share classroom research. #eltchat

barbsaka 2:59 PM @garymotteram Can you recommend a couple of not-so-highly academic journals for classroom teachers? #eltchat
rliberni 2:59 PM @CoffeeAddictMe hobby research? It's fine if it's on their own time  & their own ideas but as a paid academic it's scandalous #eltchat
