English-Language Teachers' Engagement with Research: Findings from Bangladesh
Anwaruddin, Sardar M.; Pervin, Nasrin
Professional Development in Education, v41 n1 p21-39 2015
In this article, we report on a small-scale study in which we investigated English-language teachers' engagement with educational research. We conceptualized engagement with research as reading and systematically using research for professional development. Using questionnaires and in-depth interviews, we gathered empirical materials from 40 English-language teachers who teach at various primary and high schools located in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh. Our findings indicate that there is an absolute absence of teachers' research engagement for professional development. We discuss the key reasons for this lack of research engagement. We conclude the article with some implications of our findings for teachers' professional development and the practical value of educational research.
