Researching language learning motivation “through a small lens"

Wednesday 11 May 2016, 1.00PM to 2.00pm

Speaker: Professor Ema Ushioda University of Warwick

Professor Ushioda has published widely on motivation in language learning and will discuss approaches to researching motivation in a more focused way, to counteract our tendency in the L2 motivation field to engage with language learning and teaching processes at a fairly general level (e.g. achievement or behavioural outcomes).

One of the issues discussed will be how to design more ‘interesting’ motivation studies for MA dissertations that do not follow the typical questionnaire-based route.

Location: V/045 Lecture Theatre
