タイトル: Exercising Academic Freedom: Pursuing Research in Contentious Areas of ELT
著者: Rivers, Damian
McMillan, Brian
アブストラクト: Within the field of ELT, a significant motivation for undertaking research is to improve teaching practice in order to improve learning outcomes. However, researchers may feel pressure to avoid pursuing and publishing research which poses a challenge to long-established or commercially profitable practices (Teichler & Yağci, 2009). When certain pedagogical practices are deemed by authorities to be exempt from criticism or questioning, a serious threat is posed to the development and transfer of knowledge. This paper focuses on a case study involving researchers who investigated teacher beliefs concerning L1 use at a university with a long-established English-only language policy, and attempts by institutional agents to undermine the research, and prevent it from being published in a transparent manner. Ideas on how to protect freedom of inquiry and maintain research integrity, even when findings reveal limitations or deficiencies in policies and practices which are promoted by those in positions of authority, are discussed.
