Feedback Needed to Develop TESOL 2019 Research Priorities

by David Cutler | 02/09/2018
TESOL International Association has developed several research agendas for interested teachers and researchers to address key questions in the profession and stimulate discussion on research issues in the field. In keeping abreast of current research trends, the TESOL Board of Directors recently charged the Research Professional Council (RPC) to revisit the TESOL 2014 Research Agenda (the most recent edition) and guide the development of the TESOL 2019 Research Priorities.  

In the spirit of reflective practice, the association is asking all TESOL Professionals to consider the TESOL 2014 Research Agenda and share their insights and opinions on accessibility and usefulness of the document. In addition, this survey asks participant to identify current or emerging research topics, issues, or trends in TESOL. The findings of this survey will be shared and discussed in the RPC Research Fair ​during the TESOL 2018 International Convention and English Language Expo. Subsequently, a report will be shared with all TESOL members.

Please take a moment to view and complete ​​the survey, which will help TESOL create its first-ever Research Priorities. The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete and must be ​submitted by 20 February 2018.
