Dr. Crookes’s main research and teaching interests at present are critical language pedagogy and language teachers developing philosophies of teaching. More generally, he remains broadly interested in the methodology of second language teaching and teacher development. In recent semester his seminar teaching has included material on emotion and motivation in second language teaching and learning. Very recently he has begun exploring the role of coaching and dialogue in professional development. Besides teaching regular graduate and undergraduate courses for the Department of SLS, he has conducted courses and workshops for teachers especially on teaching methodology, action research, and critical pedagogy, in a variety of settings around the world, including Colombia, Denmark, Korea, Kyrgyzstan, Singapore, and Vietnam.
