Fukuoka JALT:

Grant and Questionnaire Writing Workshop

Date: Saturday, March 13th, 2010 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Keita Kikuchi

Presentation 1 (18:30-19:30)
Since 2009, the Ministry of Education has been accepting applications for research funds in English. This presentation will detail the procedures and pitfalls involved in successfully applying for government sponsored research grants. Examples of applications are shown so that the audience can understand what should be done.

Presentation 2 (19:30-20:30)
Many second language researchers use survey research to explore latent constructs and students' attitudes toward learning. This presentation will explain some of the mistakes that researchers commonly make in doing survey research, explore methods for determining well grounded items. There will be some hand-on activities to construct a questionnaire together and understand the idea with other participants.
