CARLA FELLOW PRESENTATION: Affordance or Constraint? Exploring Shifts in L2 Pronunciation, Reported Ideologies, and Actual Teaching Practices in the Classroom Ecology 
Wednesday, March 15, 2023
12:20–1:10 p.m. (Central Time)

Applying an ecological approach to classroom-based research (Guerrettaz & Johnston, 2013; van Lier, 2004), this study investigates the impact of International Teaching Assistant (ITA) programs on students’ reported ideologies and English pronunciation patterns, and the extent to which these students transfer what they had learned from their ITA course to their actual teaching contexts. A multi-method case study design is used to explore how ITAs describe their teaching ideologies and the impact of the ITA program, as well as the extent to which these ideologies and demonstrated changes in L2 English pronunciation are evident in their actual instructional contexts.

Darren LaScotte is a PhD candidate in Second Language Education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and a Teaching Specialist in the Minnesota English Language Program. Within the broader scope of applied linguistics, his research focuses on second language acquisition and use, and on the resulting implications for teaching and learning. He was selected to be a CARLA Fellow for 2022–2023.
