Research mentoring for teacher educators

In this webinar we discuss the recent increased interest in teacher research engagement by English language teachers and the need for teacher research mentoring that can and should be offered to teachers.

About the webinar

Although research could be self-initiated process, there is often need for different forms of support, knowledge and skills for doing research. Therefore, after reviewing our experience in an online research training initiative that we coordinated, we would like to focus on specific qualities research mentors need to have and examine various roles that they may need to take on while providing such support. 

Teacher educators are among the potential mentors who could help teacher researchers. We provide different mentor roles matched with the specific research practices and skills by exemplifying research questions, data collection and generation tools. We end the webinar by posing some questions for the audience to further think about.
