Are there any members who are going to graduate from the PGCEi this year?

Last year there were a few BMs doing it but this year I appear to be the only one.

Myself...I sent off the final, M4, assignment on 25 Sept which was a huge relief but also left a gaping hole in my life. I don't think I'll persue an MEd as I didn't enjoy the academic / theoretical part of the course.

In fact I was quite shocked to find that there is no empirical evidence to support most modern, student-centred methodologies that are at the core of most curricula...

Yes the end of the PGCEi leaves quite a hole, felt exactly the same after finishing last year. The MEd, as you would expect, is nearly three times as much reading. As a PGCEi student you would only have to do 3 modules so it is worth a thought. One of the modules is an investigation of practice which would appear to suit you.

Congratulations on sending your last module bravo

Actually there is a large, longitudinal, body of empirical evidence (both quantitative and qualitative) that supports most modern EFL and student centered methodologies that form the basis of most modern curricula. The 2 most prominent exceptions are the backwards US public schools' "teach to the test" system models and the UK's current, "politically correct" model.

This body of knowledge begins with the immersion / multi-lingual Canadian models back in the early 60's and continues through some of the northern European and some of the more progressive models in use in some areas of Asia (ie: Singapore) and Oceania/Austral-Asia.
