My thesis in three minutes


Three minute thesis presentation competition is becoming very popular among PhD student. In Australia the University of Queensland organizes this competition annually in which most universities around the country send their representatives.

The activity of learning cognitions about language teaching and learning in Chile


The research explores the activity of learning cognitions for English as foreign language (EFL) pre-service teachers, i.e., what teachers think, know and believe (Borg, 2006), about teaching and learning English in Chile.

This study will analyse how student teachers construct their cognitions from a sociocultural perspective. As stated by Johnson (2009) “From a sociocultural perspective, teacher cognition originates in and is fundamentally shaped by the specific social activities in which teachers engage.”(p. 17). This lens will enable us to understand the complex dynamics between student teacher and the social situations he/she is engaged to in the construction of his/her own cognitions about language teaching and learning.
