The Penn State Workshops in Research Methods for Applied Linguists started in 2020 as a means to support researchers in designing, carrying out, and reporting research studies. Our aims for these workshops have always been to provide free and accessible training in a variety of research methods used in the field, including considerations for research design, data collection, data analysis, reporting, and interpretation. Our workshops involve all stages of the research process and are led by international experts. In fall 2022, we are pleased to offer the following workshops, taking place on Friday afternoons (2:00pm – 5:00pm). Registration is free and participation is via Zoom.
