About The Book
Professional Development for Language Teachers: From Teachers to Trainers offers evidence-based ideas to help teachers transition from the role of teacher to trainer. Introducing topics such as reasons for becoming a trainer, roles of trainers and the competencies trainers need, the booklet then focusses on planning, delivering and evaluating a training workshop. Strategies for observation, feedback and formative assessment are explored. Based solidly on current theoretical perspectives and the authors' extensive experience of working in a range of contexts, the booklet includes authentic examples of situations and resources as well as engaging and practical tasks that can be used as a basis for teacher education workshops. Interspersing person anecdotes and relatable examples with academic explanations and discussions, the booklet is highly readable. It will help senior teachers and lecturers, department heads, teacher leaders, supervisors and other teacher educators in formalizing their understanding of theories and practices in the field of language teacher education.
