In this six-week course from 10th September to 18th October 2020, participants will be introduced to a classroom-based research process, known as action research by Trainer Amy King-Virtual English Language Fellow, U.S. Embassy in Vietnam. They will engage with each component of the action research process to develop an implementation plan. Upon completion of the course, participants will be ready to conduct action research in their own classrooms and be prepared to present their findings at professional conferences.
The six live workshops from 9-11 am every Sunday will focus on each aspect of the action research cycle: inquire, plan, act, observe, and reflect. Following a literature review, participants will identify a problem and select a change in practice to resolve it. They will determine which data to collect to evaluate their change in practice. Participants will also be introduced to data analysis resources they can use once they have implemented their plan and gathered data. Since participants may wish to present their action research at conferences, the course will also address presentation skills. Live Workshops on Zoom flatform from 9-11 am Vietnam time every Sunday morning will be scheduled as follows:
In addition to the workshops, the course will include consultation sessions (in office hours on weekdays from Monday to Thursday) that will enable individualized feedback on participants’ action research plans. Participants will book the slots to work 1-1 or in groups to discuss their action plan and receive feedback and professional support from trainer Amy.
