Last Friday I took part in an event called Primer Encuentro de Innovadores Educativos organized by the School of Education of Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. The aim of the event was to promote the exchange of proposals for improvement and innovation of educational issues, which is always a good thing since we are not always updated with what our colleagues are doing in the research and innovation area.
I was gladly surprised to find out that out of the eight proposals presented in the event, there were five that were based on specific English contexts: Global Perspectives IGCSE, Language Portfolios, Inferential Reading for FCE, Editing codes for writing and Reading Circles, all of them as research work for licensure. It is really good to know that more and more people in the ELT field are doing high quality research and it would be even better to have all this public since it is encouraging to know about colleagues doing things that will contribute to the improvement of the teaching and learning of English.
