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.

Feedback from 2017 Action Research Workshop Participants

  • "As a first time member of WATESOL, I was very impressed with today's workshop and I look forward to attending more in the future."
  • "It was really practical and interactive. It was one of the best I have ever attended."
  • "It was great to have the opportunity to connect with other professionals in the field and plan together."
  • "For me, it was very helpful to learn how to narrow down the topic and the question of the Action Research."
  • "Learning about how Action Research can work in my classroom was very helpful. A lot of workshops I have attended have not focused as much on practical application."
