Title: Researching Language Teaching and Learning
Subtitle: An Integration of Practice and Theory
Edited By: Tatsuhiro Yoshida
Hiroyuki Imai
Yoshiyuki Nakata
Description:

Never in the recent history of foreign language education have we seen so
much earnest concern for the philosophies which underlie research methods.
The primary force behind this concern has been the rise of a socio-cultural
paradigm in foreign language education from which new ways of integrating
teaching theory and practice are emerging.

All but one of the papers collected in this volume were presented and
discussed at the international seminar Understanding the Language Classroom
and New Directions for Language Teaching Research held in Kobe, Japan, from
14 to 17 March 2007.

The volume has reframed research accounts of classroom and learner issues
by clarifying the powerful connections between philosophically different
families of both recently developed and conventional research practices:
Exploratory Practice, Action Research, Narrative Inquiry, Learner Autonomy,
and Strategy-based Language Learning.
