The professional development of primary EFL teachers National and international research
Eva Wilden, Raphaela Porsch (Hrsg.): The professional development of primary EFL teachers. National and international research. Waxmann. Münster 2017. ISBN 978-3-8309-3424-0.
In this publication national and international researchers working in the field of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) education, applied linguistics and educational sciences are presenting their current research in the area of primary EFL teacher education. The starting point of this collection was the general shift in educational research towards the role of teachers as well as towards facets of the teaching profession and their relative contributions to successful and ‘good’ education. All contributions to this volume focus primarily on hitherto insufficiently researched aspects of the professional development of primary EFL teachers. This book is thus contributing to closing existing research gaps as well as giving impetus for future studies and increasing communication about research on the professional development of EFL teachers in related disciplines. Aside from an overview of teaching primary EFL in Europe and beyond, the contributors are presenting up-to-date research on policy and practice of primary EFL teacher education, in-service training as well as professional competences and beliefs of primary EFL teachers.
