This TESOL CALL-IS Electronic Village Online project ran successfully, with a focus on teacher-research for difficult circumstances, in January–February 2017. We are aiming to run it again, along similar lines, with a larger team of mentors, in January–February 2018. The project provides a hands-on introduction to inquiry-based teacher development, especially (though not exclusively) for teachers working in difficult circumstances (large classes, low-resource classrooms, etc.). The five-week workshop will take participants through different stages of teacher-research, engaging them in practical activities to gradually build their confidence in teacher-research.
Registration begins on 1st January 2018 and activities begin on 14th January, going on until 17th February. There may also be some final presentations by participants online in March. Participation will be absolutely free.
Before we open registration on January 1st 2018, you can, in the meantime, join the Classroom-based research for professional development Facebook group, to obtain updates and reminders.
