Welcome to ReaLiTea
ReaLiTea stands for Research Literacy of Teachers. It seeks to enhance the research and teaching skills of pre-service and in-service foreign and second language educators. Our focus is to bridge the gaps between theories and practices, meet the needs of marginalized learners, and improve critical literacies in teacher education and in foreign and second language teaching and learning.
ReaLiTea is an Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnership (KA-220) that has, at its core, the professionalization of pre-service and in-service foreign and second language teachers around the world. The goal of ReaLiTea is to develop teachers' research literacies to strengthen the connections between second language education theory and classroom practice. By engaging in research-related activities, educators reflect on what they do in their classrooms, identifying issues related to both equity and efficacy. Educational practice is improved for all learners.
