Electronic Village Online 2018 – Classroom-based research – first webinar

Richard Smith writes …

The EVO2018 on classroom-based research (particularly designed for teachers in relatively ‘difficult circumstances’, but open to all) officially got underway a week ago with opening-up of a website page encouraging the 240 registered participants to Screen Shot 2018-01-22 at 01.29.57describe their classroom and, in a separate task, a recent success in their teaching.  They were also invited to watch and comment on videos from the British Council’s ‘Teaching in Low-resource classrooms’ video resource.

The second week’s website page was launched today with a webinar hosted by Paula Rebolledo and Richard Smith in which they explained how to develop a research focus and identify research questions. During the coming week participants will share their own concerns and research questions via a Google+ community and receive mentoring – this year  twenty-five mentors volunteered to be on hand to offer guidance, though participants will also be interacting with one another as critical friends to clarify problems and questions. The next webinar (about research methods)  is on Saturday 27th January at 3pm GMT. All – whether registered or not – are welcome to the Adobe Connect online webinar room kindly loaned by IATEFL Research SIG. And all are also welcome to join the EVO’s Facebook group and interact there.
