Participants in this course will engage in exploration of action research in theory and practice in relation to language teaching. The course will expose students to a variety of approaches to participatory research (PR). Student teachers will be encouraged to make connections between their understandings of research of early language teaching and their own emergence as practitioner researchers in educational settings. The aim of the course is to prepare participants to view themselves as knowledge producers who are able to learn about their teaching and their students by studying their own experiences.
During the course, student teachers will have the opportunity to identify an education problem/puzzle in their teaching practice, make a plan, gather and analyze data as they carry it out, report results, and develop implications for their future teaching.
