Theoretical Frameworks and Research Methods for Studying Language Teacher Identity

College of Education, The University of Washington

16:30 – 18:00
Room 401-402, Meng Wah Complex, HKU
Chair: Dr Margaret Lo


Language teacher identity has emerged as a major area of research in language teaching.  Current special issues in TESOL Quarterly (Varghese et al., 2016), the Modern Language Journal (De Costa & Norton, 2017), as well as recent edited books (Cheung, Said & Park, 2015; Barkhuizen, 2016) convey the interest and significance that this area of study holds in English language teaching at a global level. In this workshop, I provide both highlights in terms of theoretical frameworks and research methods related to this topic and construct and will ask participants to bring their own questions, data, and work-in-progress related to language teacher identity to engage with me.
