Research Methods: Action Research

This practical talk will help teachers or teacher trainers to get started on a plan for action research. Useful tools will be introduced to help participants narrow their research focus and then sustain it. As well as helping participants to arrive at an appropriate research focus, the talk will illustrate ways of involving language learners in the research in ways which are mutually beneficial. Typical problems that face action researchers will also be covered, as well as ways to minimise these potential problems. The talk will also discuss different ways of sharing and publishing research outcomes.
