Now in its second year, the Penn State Workshops in Research Methods for Applied Linguists responds to recent developments in the field concerning how we carry out our research projects: from considerations of research design and data collection to data analysis and interpretation. This increased scrutiny of how we accumulate knowledge has come to be known as the “methodological turn”. Of course, this is of no surprise. Research methods are at the heart of any research project and can have major consequences for the nature of a study’s findings and conclusions. To contribute to this turning point in the field, the Penn State Workshops in Research Methods for Applied Linguists provide graduate students and faculty with hands-on training in cutting-edge research methods, including mixed method, qualitative, and quantitative approaches. The workshops involve all stages of the research process. This year we are excited to announce four research methodology workshops for applied linguists. Our instructors are experts in their respective research methods:

Research Methods for Digital Discourse Analysis (Camilla Vásquez, University of South Florida)

Eye Tracking as a Tool for Language Researchers (Aline Godfroid, Michigan State University)
