About Joseph Siegel

Joseph Siegel teaches English in teacher education, where he focuses mainly on language teaching pedagogy and classroom practices. He also teaches courses on pragmatics, classroom interaction, research methodology, and action research for the language classroom.

Joseph Siegel has a PhD in Applied Linguistics from Aston University, UK. His doctoral thesis focused on the teaching of listening strategies in second language (L2) education. He leads several research projects on language teaching pedagogy, including the ways in which note-taking is conceived and taught in the L2 classroom and how L2 learners develop spoken pragmatic knowledge and abilities. He is also currently co-editing a collection of works titled “International Perspectives on Teaching the Four Skills in ELT” with Professor Anne Burns, University of New South Wales, Australia.
