Welcome back to The TEFLology Podcast - a podcast all about teaching English as a foreign language, and related matters.
Today we bring you an interview with Gabriel Díaz-Maggioli. Gabriel is Director of the LUDUS Center, the faculty professional development center of the Catholic University of Uruguay.
Gabriel's research focuses on teacher education, pedagogy, and professional development, among other areas. His published books include 2004’s Teacher-Centered Professional Development, and 2012’s Teaching Language Teachers: Scaffolding Professional Learning.
The interview was conducted at last year’s JALT conference, after Gabriel had just delivered his plenary presentation titled: Shaping the Way We Grow: Teachers and Development.
In the interview, Matt asked Gabriel questions about Continuing Professional Development, Teacher Education, and the Teaching of Teachers.
A shortened written version of the forthcoming interview will appear in JALT’s ‘The Language Teacher’ magazine later this year. We’d like to thank the organization for setting up this interview.
