LING-612 Research Methods in Applied Linguistics

DURATION:
3 Sem. Hours

This course provides an introduction to research design in the field of second language (SL) acquisition and teaching. The course will be offered in four modules each focusing on a particular aspect of second language research. They cover topics such as the development of research questions and the generation of hypotheses, defining/describing variables, concepts such as validity and reliability, data collection procedures, data coding and analysis and basic statistical concepts. Qualitative/descriptive and quantitative research designs will both be discussed and contextualized as a function of research questions. There will be hands on practice with the interpretation of research results. Once the essential components of a range of different methods are grasped, students prepare a detailed Action research design.
