Action Research Workshop - Saturday 2/17/18
Co-Sponsored by WATESOL & AU
This Action Research Workshop will provide tools, strategies, and approaches for doing research in your own classroom. Learn how to formulate questions about your 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.
