Examining diversity and criticality in English language teaching through reflective practice: Language teacher beliefs, attitudes, and experiences.
10:00 AM

Event Description
Reflective practice is a tool that language teachers can utilize to raise their own awareness about their classroom practices and beliefs in order to improve. In this presentation, the presenters will describe and discuss their collaborative experiences conducting an analysis of their own practices, including explorations of their beliefs, attitudes, and experiences teaching as English teachers in Japan. The presenters will then discuss the importance of reflective practice for teachers at all levels and in all contexts, and provide practical hints and recommendations for the audience to engage successfully in a collaborative reflective practice of their own.
