Add your own review!

Overview

Student and novice researchers may have a general idea for a topic they would like to research, but have a difficult time settling on a more specific topic and its associated research questions. Addressing this problem, this book features contributions from over thirty diverse and experienced research supervisors, mentors, and principal investigators in the field of language teacher education. The chapters are autobiographic in nature, with each contributing author reflecting on relevant, current and innovative research topics through the lens of their own professional life and research work. Offering explicit research topics and strategies for each area of expertise, this book will serve as a useful reference for the seasoned qualitative or narrative researcher, and a helpful guide for new researchers and teacher researchers narrowing down their own research topics.

Reviews

Gary Barkhuizen's new edited collection is thoughtfully curated, illuminating, immensely useful, and welcomingly accessible. I appreciate the context and interest provided by the autobiographical sections, as well as the specificity of the advice and of the topic suggestions. This book fills a very real need, gathers a wealth of expertise in one volume, and from now on will be essential reading for scholars at any stage of their careers. Stephanie Vandrick, University of San Francisco, USA. This book offers us a wide range of topics in qualitative research in language teacher education. It is an excellent introduction for graduate students who are planning research projects, language teachers who are reflecting on their teaching and trying to improve it further, and teacher educators who are designing and running teacher education programmes. It could become one of the few books you need to refer to throughout the different stages of your development as a language teaching professional. Masaki Oda, Tamagawa University, Japan. This is an excellent resource for graduate students looking for research topics for their theses or dissertations. Written by established L2 scholars from around the world, each chapter provides up to date research topics within applied linguistics and language education that could form the basis for graduate students and novice L2 scholars to carry out productive research studies. I highly recommend this book! Willy A. Renandya, National Institute of Education, Singapore.
