Research into the links between language teacher development and working with children as co- researchers
Convener: Professor Victoria Murphy Applied Linguistics Research Group. Interview data conducted at regular intervals during the study has been analysed to make tentative links between working with children as co-researchers and teachers’ professional development. This talk will address children’s status in applied linguistics research more broadly, and then discuss the conceptual and practical issues around children as co-researchers/ researchers. The talk will also report on an ongoing study with Indian primary English teachers who have been working with children as co-researchers in their classrooms.
