"Promoting Learner Autonomy and Raising Awareness of Teacher Competencies through Peer Teaching": This paper reports the findings of a pedagogical intervention we conducted with 47 intermediate level learners enrolled in an ELT methodology program at PUCV. The study sought to assess the role of peer-teaching in promoting learner autonomy and in raising awareness about some teacher competencies that pre-service teachers are expected to acquire. In peer teaching approaches, learners are required to prepare their own classroom materials and then teach them to each other (Spratt & Leung, 2000). Data was collected through a questionnaire. Conclusions, pedagogical implications and suggestions for further research will be provided

"Blogs and the Teaching of Culture: Challenges and Responsibilities for ELT Teachers": In this presentation we report on the findings of a mixed methods study that sought to investigate the use of blogs for teaching cultural aspects linked to English speaking countries. The participants were 89 first-year students enrolled in an ELT program in Chile who worked in a collaborative blog assignment for a semester. Learners´ patterns of interaction with the blog captured through embedded tracking systems along with surveys were used in our analysis. Findings highlight the role of teacher guidance for the success of this type of pedagogical intervention. Challenges and responsibilities for ELT teachers are discussed at the end of the presentation
