Customizing Web 2.0 tools to writing pedagogy
TPACK-based professional development of L2 writing teachers
In this study, we explored L2 writing teachers’ professional development in terms of Web 2.0-mediated writing pedagogy within the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) framework. Using reflective journals and in-depth interviews, we found that in an online L2 writing teacher education course, the writing teachers learned that, for their instruction to be effective, they need to purposefully design Web 2.0-mediated writing tasks, guide learners’ use of Web 2.0 tools, and develop collaborative writing procedures for Web 2.0-based task completion. The participants further highlighted the importance of adaptive L2 writing instruction/assessment, learner-oriented writing instruction, their mediatory roles as writing facilitators, selection of Web 2.0 tools for writing pedagogy, and digital tools as writing e-portfolios.
Keywords: L2 writing teachers, online writing course, Web 2.0 tools, technological pedagogical content knowledge
