PROJECTS ON LANGUAGES TEACHING

 

A atual coordenadora do mestrado em ensino de Inglês para o 1º Ciclo, Carolyn Leslie, participa na rede interinstitucional (PEEP) Primary English Education in Portugal, onde se regista a participação de três docentes e investigadoras do TEALS / CETAPS nos 3 projetos de investigação a decorrer, um dos quais financiado pela FCT:

  • TEYL in the practicum: Mapping supervisory and teaching approaches(MAp): Carolyn Leslie, Sandie Mourão, et al.
  • Assessment in primary English education in Portugal:Teachers’ Perceptions and practices: Carolyn Leslie, Sandie Mourão, et al. . No âmbito deste estudo longitudinal (2017-2020) sobre as práticas de avaliação de professores no ensino primário de inglês, a coordenadora do curso apresentou recentemente os resultados globais da investigação ao Ministério da Educação (Webinar DGE – 21 de Março de 2022). Este estudo agora está na base de um futuro projeto, submetido à FCT para financiamento, sobre a formação de professores do 1º ciclo em Portugal em práticas de avaliação, intitulado ‘An assessment mindset intervention: Professional development through a blended MOOC ‘.
  • Approaches for second language learning at an early age: the impact of a training course on the receptivity of pre‑service teachers of English to pedagogical innovation: FCT Funded Post-doctoral research project undertaken by Catarina Castro. CETAPS, Nova University Lisbon.

The current coordinator of the CS, Carolyn Leslie, also participates in the inter-institutional network (PEEP) Primary English Education in Portugal, where three TEALS / CETAPS teachers and researchers are participating in three ongoing research projects, one of which is funded by FCT:

  • TEYL in the practicum: Mapping supervisory and teaching approaches (MAp): Carolyn Leslie, Sandie Mourão, et al.
  • Assessment in primary English education in Portugal: Teachers’ Perceptions and practices: Carolyn Leslie, Sandie Mourão, et al. As part of this longitudinal study (2017-2020) on teachers’ assessment practices in primary English education, the course coordinator recently jointly presented the findings of the research to the Ministry of Education (Webinar DGE – 21 Março, 2022). This study now forms the basis of a future project, submitted to FCT for funding, on educating 1st cycle teachers in Portugal on assessment practices, entitled ‘An assessment mindset intervention: Professional development through a blended MOOC’.

Dr Catarina Castro

Between 2018 and 2020, the researcher will continue to develop a postdoctoral research, funded by FCT, which aims to disseminate Task Based Language Teaching (TBLT), an approach that was developed as an alternative to traditional methods, and that is considered to facilitate second language acquisition. However, despite the clear psycholinguistic rational for TBLT and empirical evidence supporting the choice of “tasks” as the basis for second language teaching and learning, a number of teacher factors have been found to challenge the adoption of TBLT. Given the present resistance regarding TBLT (principles and implementation), the project aims to develop, implement and evaluate a language teacher training program, at the New University of Lisbon, University of the Algarve and the University of Porto.

  • Professor Carlos Ceia was the main advisor to the Ministry of Education to revise the legislative framework in 2014, and was instrumental in creating a complementary training for teachers at all Higher Education institutions which ensured that, from 2015-16, c200.000 3rd- and 4th-year students in Basic Education in Portugal started learning English as part of their national core curriculum. New curricular standards were implemented accordingly, following the CEFR and EAQUALS “Can Do” (starter level). Subsequently, new master courses for teacher training specifically in this area were certified by A3ES (the national education quality agency). CETAPS researchers were thoroughly involved in this process, with a special focus on the promotion of CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning – a methodology for primary and secondary schools.
