Individual Differences among Student Teachers in Taking an Online Corpus Linguistics Course: A Multiple Case Study
Alice Ebrahimi (Alzahra University, Iran) and S. Susan Marandi (Alzahra University, Iran)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-8519-2.ch004
Recently, educating teachers in computer- assisted language learning (CALL) has gained much popularity. In this regard, corpus linguistics (CL), as an area related to CALL, has received great attention. Researchers, now argue strongly for the inclusion of CL in language teacher education (LTE) programs. However, there is no research on how individual and contextual differences may affect student teachers' (STs) reactions to such training. This chapter reports on a qualitative study which explored a range of variables related to STs' personal and professional backgrounds as well as group dynamics influential in the adoption and application of CL training by STs. Through analyzing the data collected using surveys, interviews, and students' written evaluations of the course, it was found that STs' years of teaching experience, characteristics and beliefs, prior experience of online communication, access to technology, and familiarity with and attitudes toward CALL play a crucial role in this regard.

Best Practices for Online Training and Support for Online Instructors
Hybrid courses are courses that utilize both face-to-face instruction and some version on online learning. There are many variations in this format. In some cases, instructors replace one day in the classroom with one day online, while others select specific learning modules to do online and in person. Flipped classes are a variation of the hybrid course format where instructors deliver content online for students to watch at home and use class time for active learning.
