In Response To: Re: CELTA + MA - extraneous? (Tim)

This all depends whether the potential employee of the university is looking to teach in an ESOL classroom full of L2 students d e v e l o p i n g t h e i r l a n g u a g e t o j o i n t h e m a i n s t r e a m u n i v e r s i t y p r o g r a m m e s; or is wanting a research role where they develop the theory of ESOL and run papers on that rather than actually teach the language.

For the former; PhDs are not really relevant, and might make you Ďtoo boring/academicí to be effective.

And just because you've had a few years in the classroom in Japan/China/ElSalvador, does not mean you have been doing the job WELL. A certificate with assessed classroom teaching practice helps show you DO know the basics of what you should be doing.
