Aims and Requirements [工作坊介绍及要求]

This two-day workshop will survey select ‘hot’ topics for research in applied linguistics and attempt to cover some essential aspects of writing good literature review to justify our research. It will start with some basic principles in selecting topics for research and then illustrate the selection process with specific examples. It will also provide some guiding principles in conducting solid literature review to build a strong case for our research, including qualitative, quantitative and mixed method studies. The participants will be invited to analyse literature review samples taken from studies using particular methodological approaches and encouraged to write one for their own research projects. The workshop will have an opportunity to share experiences of writing extended reviews articles with each other.
