Linguapolis is proud to announce its first Summer School on
qualitative and quantitative research methods in language learning and

A Toolbox for Design-Based Research
University of Antwerp, 16 to 20 August 2009.
Lecturers are Sven De Maeyer, PhD, and Vincent Donche, PhD (Institute
for Education and Information Sciences, University of Antwerp).

The course will focus on methodological considerations in designing
and conducting empirical research. We will highlight the practical
issues involved in the use of qualitative and quantitative research
methods. Insight will be given into the most commonly used data-
collection techniques such as surveys, interviews, and observation.
Further we will analyse how to generate more data-driven conclusions.
The target group are researchers in language learning and teaching who
need to investigate user data or results of specific design practices
and experiments in a more evidence-based manner.
The number of participants is limited to 25. Timely registration (or
reservation) is therefore necessary.
