Tokyo JALT:

Faulty Bridges: Strengthening the Interplay Between Theory and Classroom Practice

Date: Sunday, March 16th, 2003 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Marshall Childs

Applied Linguistics, the field that is supposed to bridge theory and practice, has not been a good bridge. It has offered relatively few valuable insights to guide classroom practices. The lecture will describe ways of broadening and deepening the interplay between theory and practice. The speaker, Marshall Childs, is The Daily Yomiuri's "Practical Linguist."
