Gunma JALT:

Beyond Intuition: Getting Started in Action Research

Date: Sunday, November 18th, 2001 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Anne Burns, Macquarie University in Australia

Interested in action research but not sure what it is? Uncertain about how to start an action research cycle? Want to know more about techniques for data collection? In this workshop, we will discuss some of the characteristics and processes of action research, and how it is different from other types of research in language education. We will also explore how you can get started in action research, either alone or with others. We will focus particularly on the early stages of doing action research which are often considered the most challenging: deciding on a focus, mapping out steps in the process, and selecting techniques for data collection. You are encouraged to bring along any teaching issues, questions or problems you have been thinking about for discussion at the workshop.
This event is part of the Four Corners Tours 2001, which are opportunities for JALT National Conference speakers to visit local JALT chapters throughout the country.
