EXAMPLES

“Gow, Kember and McKay (I 996) working in Hong Kong, for example, focused on encouraging independent (student) learning at the tertiary level, and reported improved student learning as a result of their action research project.

Another interesting study conducted by Curtis (2001), who encouraged 20 Hong Kong teachers to carry out small-scale action research studies which focused on how they could increase and improve the quantity of spoken English used by their learners in their English lessons, also reported positive results from partaking in action research such as increased teacher awareness of classroom dynamics, and expectations of their learners. In addition, Curtis (2001: 75) reported that the teachers learned ‘a great deal about themselves, their students and their teaching and learning environments through action research'.

Stewart (2001: 79) carried out action research to explore how Japanese university students use questions in formal debates and concluded that action research for language teachers is not only a way to solve problems 'but it is found in the very act of entering into the cycle of investigation‘.”

(Taken from Farrel, 2007, p.98).
