My name is Serge-Paul Lebrun. I am a teacher at ALI here in Montreal and currently working on my dissertation for a MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL through the University of Leicester.
The title of my research project is ‘Using Social Websites in ESL writing classes: a NewsActivist writing club at ALI in Montreal’.
The purpose of this research project is to explore the use of collaborative online writing in order to promote effective use of it in ESL writing classes.
I'm searching for other ESL instructors within the NewsActivist community and would like to know if you are willing to participate in an relatively short e-mail interview (3-4 questions, with the possibility fir follow-up questions) regarding your experience with News Activist.
The participation of other ESL teachers will greatly enhance my ability to achieve my research goals, and I would really like to hear about your experience using NewsActivist before I start my writing club.
Of course, any information you give me in the email interviews will be kept anonymous and confidential.
Have a great new year,
