Meeting Description:

This year the Linguapolis Summer School offers an intermediate course in research designs, methods, and techniques used in design-based research. The course will focus on methodological considerations in conducting empirical research. We will highlight the practical issues involved in the use of qualitative and quantitative research methods in language teaching and learning. Insight will be given in how to process data after having used the most commonly data-collection techniques such as surveys, interviews and observations. The course is primarily intended for researchers in language teaching and learning who investigate user data or results of specific design practices and experiments in a more evidence-based manner. This programme will be most valuable for researchers who already designed their empirical research and are now in the early stages of conducting it. All participants will receive a reader including the necessary didactic materials (handouts, PowerPoints, articles, etc.). During the course the participants will work in small groups according to their research theme, methodology and level. Each participant will have the opportunity to work with his/her own data set and will have time to experiment with these data during the exercise sessions. As many researchers in the language field deal with similar issues, discussion with peers will be encouraged under the guidance of our experienced lecturers. At the end of the course each participant has the opportunity to have a personal consult with the lecturers to discuss current research.

More details can be found on the website: http://summerschool.linguapolis.be (Information regarding the content and the programme will be added soon)
