Language Teacher Associations: Between Research and Experimentation
Educational Linguistics is a theoretical-practical science that has a speculative and an operational dimension. This necessarily involves a rich and complex network of relations between research and experimentation, between academia – the seat of theoretical speculation – and school – representing practical application. In this context, we believe that language teachers’ associations can play a fundamental role, a role that can be enhanced by a collaborative project that overcomes closures and self-referentiality.
