Research that is of interest to the teacher
It is clear that the main source of professional expertise for English teachers is their own classroom experience and reflection. But there is only so much one can learn from one’s own teaching context, and a lot of interesting insights and enrichment to be found in the research literature. The problem is that few practitioners have the time, in a busy teaching schedule, to keep up with reading such literature.  In this talk, I’ll be discussing some interesting research findings that have direct relevance to classroom practice, relating to the use of digital technology, learning styles, vocabulary teaching and more. 
Penny Ur was educated at Oxford, Cambridge (PGCE) and Reading (MA TEFL) universities. She has thirty years’ experience as an English teacher in elementary, middle and high schools in Israel. Now retired, she has taught BA and MA courses at Oranim Academic College of Education and Haifa University. She is primarily interested in practical aspects of effective English language teaching, and has presented papers on related topics at TESOL, IATEFL and other English teachers’ conferences worldwide.  Her books include Grammar practice activities (2nd Edition) (2009), Vocabulary activities (2011), A course in English language teaching (2012), Discussions and more (2014), Penny Ur’s 100 teaching tips (2016), all published by Cambridge University Press.
