Abstract: This paper illustrates a research design that models direct engagement of academics teaching in English Language Teacher Education (ELTE) departments in implementing national policies, in this case, the integrating of National Standards of Higher Education (NSHE) into undergraduate courses. The key difference in the design between the present study and conventional research design is in that it did not begin with a question about its form, quantitative and qualitative. Furthermore, in Education, research design is largely limited to surveys and a testing of simple hypotheses. Unlike these traditional approaches, the present study engaged ELTE academics directly in the process of collaborative reflection on the meaning of the new higher education policies from the perspective of their own contexts. Key issue in designing the study was to conceptualise a perspective that will help inform this process of engagement, academics’ reflections and further learning. Complex analyses were condu cted to reach this point. Again, this was a very different process than simply listing “previous research”. The presentation will briefly illustrate the background thinking behind the study design, the design and the impacts that the chosen design has helped to achieve. (More)
