Reactions and Reviews

…This volume offers TESOL professionals abundant food for thought in significant areas of professional knowledge and expertise, including learner autonomy, technology in language learning, blended learning, testing and assessment, and the nature of collegiality.
Dr. Jim Askham, Lecturer in Applied Linguistics, School of Arts, University of Leicester.

Sharon draws on her vast teaching experience to offer insightful reflections on questions many teachers grapple with but may not feel comfortable discussing in their work environment. Questions such as ‘How do I know if my marking in exams is reliable?’, ‘How can I integrate it into my normal teaching without wasting too much class time?’ and ‘How can I communicate with colleagues who are very different from me?’ are addressed from a thoughtful and knowledgeable perspective providing a framework for teachers to consider their own responses to these questions. A valuable addition to any teacher’s book collection.”
—Professor Elizabeth Gregson, University of Trento

Sharon Hartle is an international expert on student-centred learning, reflective teaching, technology for the classroom and language assessment. She is also the best English language teacher trainer I know.  This collection of highlights from her blog posts will challenge teachers to reflect on their own teaching, to learn about the effective use of new technologies, and to critically evaluate the ways in which they assess their students.”
—Anne Parry, English Language Consultant

The book provides many practical insights into four broad strands of contemporary ELT: learning, teaching, testing, and professional development. But it should not be read as another list of top tips for teachers, rather as a glimpse into the contemplative life which all ELT practitioners should strive to emulate in their perpetual pursuit of “best practice”.”
—Dr. Michael Ennis, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano
