The Centre for English Language Proficiency (CELP) will host a five-day Doctoral Summer School on 3-7 July 2023. This will take place at the University of Malta’s Valletta Campus.
The Summer School offers PhD students in Applied Linguistics and TESOL the opportunity to further develop their research skills, fine-tune their projects, and learn about a range of contemporary key issues in the field. The Summer School will enable participants to engage in stimulating discussions, showcase their doctoral research, and network with other researchers operating within the global context of Applied Linguistics and TESOL. As part of the Summer School, students will have the opportunity to deliver a talk about their doctoral research as well as a poster presentation.
The workshops and seminars forming part of the Summer School will be facilitated by several international academics. These include Prof Lourdes Ortega (Georgetown University), Prof Sarah Mercer (University of Graz), Prof Pascual Pérez-Paredes (University of Murcia), and Prof Shelley Staples (University of Arizona), and Dr Geraldine Mark (Cardiff University). These academics will also be delivering talks on how they manage their research projects and deal with the challenges that arise in the process of doing empirical research.
An integral part of the Summer School consists of the one-on-one consultation sessions that students can sign up for with any of the above academics. These sessions will enable each student to discuss their doctoral research with someone who is highly experienced in doing research and supervising doctoral work.
Students are welcome from across the globe and it is anticipated that this will be a truly international exchange. In order for students to be eligible to attend the Summer School, they will need to be enrolled on a doctoral programme in Applied Linguistics and/or TESOL at a higher education institution. They will need to submit a 150-word statement of motivation explaining why they wish to take part in the Summer School and what they hope to gain from participating.
Some of the topics that the Summer School will focus on include:
• Identifying research issues in Applied Linguistics and TESOL; • Formulating and evaluating research questions; • Developing a theoretical framework; • Using mixed methods research; • Using innovative research methodologies; • Writing and publishing Applied Linguistics and TESOL research; • Presenting and networking at research conferences; • Building an academic profile as a researcher; • Bridging research and practice for multiple stakeholders; • Leveraging the impact of Applied Linguistics and TESOL research
