Overview

This workshop provides a practical introduction to teacher research, which is a professional development strategy that language teachers can apply to develop understandings of their own professional practices which can be used to enhance teaching, learning and institutional performance. Teacher research is systematic (as all forms of research are) but it is also practical, pedagogically-oriented and teacher-driven. It reflects contemporary views about teacher professional development which suggest that this is more effective when it is closely linked to the classroom, led by teachers, collaborative, and takes place over time. It is important to stress that teacher research is something that teachers do rather than an activity which is done to them.

The benefits of teacher research for teachers, students and institutions have been widely documented in the literature and these will be discussed early in the workshop. The main focus of the workshop, though, will be on the stages that teacher research involves. Participants will also have the opportunity to identify aspects of their own work that they would like to examine and to develop an outline of a teacher research project.
