Meeting Description:

Dear colleague,
LINGUAPOLIS, the Institute for Language and Communication of the
University of Antwerp, conducts, from 21 to 26 August 2011, a Summer
School course on qualitative and quantitative research methods in language
learning and teaching:

A Toolbox for Design-Based Research

Lecturers are Sven De Maeyer, PhD and Vincent Donche, PhD (Institute for
Education and Information Sciences, University of Antwerp). The course will
focus on methodological considerations in designing and conducting
empirical research. We will highlight the practical issues involved in the use
of qualitative and quantitative research methods. Insight will be given into
the most commonly used data-collection techniques such as surveys,
interviews, and observation. Further we will analyse how to generate more
data-driven conclusions.

The target group are researchers in language learning and teaching who
need to investigate user data or results of specific design practices and
experiments in a more evidence-based manner. At the end of the course
each participant gets a personal consult with the lectures to discuss current

The number of participants is limited to 25. Timely registration (or
reservation) is therefore necessary.

Check http://summerschool.linguapolis.be for more information and
registration or contact ann.aertsua.ac.be

The third edition of the Linguapolis Summer School can be combined with
several other conferences in Europe.

- Eurocall 2011 at the University of Nottingham: from 31 August until 3
- EARLI 2011 at the University of Exeter: from 30 August until 2 September
- JURE 2011 at the University of Exeter: from 29 until 30 September

Kind regards,

Prof. Jozef Colpaert
