Areas for further research

It is widely recognised that many aspects of EAL teaching and learning are under-researched in the UK; including the shape of effective CPD for EAL. With this in mind we are interested in hearing from schools, teachers and fellow academics who want to pursue practice-oriented research that examines effective pedagogy for EAL through any subject area; and who are interested in looking at ways of developing teachers’ pedagogy for EAL through CPD.

Naomi Flynn is currently working with schools using an approach to teaching pupils with EAL in the UK that has been tried and tested with measureable success in the US. She is interested in hearing from any schools and teachers who want to know more, with a view to taking part in practitioner-researcher partnerships with her.
