We would like to hear from English language teachers, teacher trainers and researchers in India about their experiences in and priorities for ELT research. These inputs about existing and future ELT research and collaborations will help us to understand better the shortcomings, opportunities, and mechanisms in the design and implementation of research collaborations.
We hope to share the findings of this research on our website. The personal data of all respondents will be kept confidential.
Take the survey here.
British Council commissions and carries out cutting-edge research in English language teaching and learning as part of our English work. We are keen to understand how we can form institutional links between India and the UK which enable us to generate and / support need-based ELT research collaborations. Also to understand better how we can promote access to and ensure utilisation of that research by policy makers, academics, and practitioners alike.
To this end, we have designed this questionnaire to gain an insight into the scale and quality of institutional links and research collaborations between Indian and the UK between 1995 and 2012 in the field of ELT (practice as well as research) and to reflect on ways how we can strengthen and support research collaborations between India and the UK in the years to come.
This research also aims to stimulate debate and dialogue and to provide policy makers; academics and practitioners with information which can help inform evidence-based decisions.
