The ESP teacher as a researcher – From needs analysis to materials development

Jarosław Krajka


While quite a lot of publications concern the nature of training general language teachers, much less attention has been devoted to educating LSP practitioners. Increasing teachers’ awareness of the nature of specialised languages methodology and of the possible tools to be exploited during the teaching process is essential for educating better professionals. The paper shows the adoption of a research-based approach with the aim of building individual teaching style. Student teachers in a graduate teacher training programme at a middle-sized public university in Poland conducted field research within a selected domain, diagnosed the context, conducted needs analyses, evaluated coursebooks, developed digital materials and provided peer-feedback.
