The Teacher Research Programme was first launched in 2014 with the aim of supporting the development of teachers around the world by encouraging them to investigate aspects of their own teaching and to share their learnings.
The 2016 theme was ‘Blended Learning’ and a great number of applications were received from around the world. Several projects were selected to receive support and guidance in pursuing their research, one of whom would go on to receive further support, and who presented his research at the annual IATEFL Conference in Glasgow, UK in April 2017.
This teacher, Sérgio Luiz de Moraes Ferreira, investigated students' preferences regarding the asynchronous part of their blended course.
