Teacher to Researcher: Reflections on a New Action Research Program for University EFL Teachers
Burns, Anne; Westmacott, Anne
PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, v20 n1 p15-23 Jan-Jun 2018
One of the current challenges facing many universities is how to support teachers in becoming researchers. This article discusses the experiences at a small private Chilean university of a new action research programme that was developed as a vehicle for helping teachers to become involved in research and write a research publication for peer-reviewed journals. We present findings from research into similar programmes about relevant factors for their success, describe the programme developed at the university with five English as a Foreign Language teachers in 2016, and discuss some reflections on this first year of the programme.
