Action Research Workshop - Registration Closed
Saturday, January 28th, 2017
Do you want to strengthen your teaching practice? Do you wonder about how effective some instructional activities are, and what goes on in your students' minds?This Action Research Workshop will provide tools, strategies, and approaches for doing research in your own classroom. Learn how to formulate questions about your own teaching practice, or questions about a teaching practice you want to try. Participants will discuss strategies and tools to assess outcomes, and how to write up a report about your findings so that you can share what you learn with a wider audience. Action Research is something ALL TESOL instructors can benefit from (K12, Adult Ed, Higher Ed).
Participants will review models of quality action research and walk away with a personal action research plan.
Registration is closed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
