EFL Classroom Research: A Novice’s Experience (Martin Spivey)

Conducting classroom research can be a challenging and time-consuming process, however it often provides us with useful insights on pedagogy and language learning in general. This talk will take you through my experience of organizing a recent research project as a novice researcher.

The small-scale study focused on how oral corrective feedback is provided in a small ‘eikaiwa’ group class of junior high school students. We will take a close look at the process that was involved and participants are encouraged to offer their opinions and share their own experiences of doing classroom research.

Martin Spivey has owned an operated his own ‘eikaiwa’ language school in Akita City since 2011 and is also an adjunct teacher of English at Akita Prefectural University (Yurihonjo Campus).
