Aims, contents and method of the course

This course aims at establishing a forum for doctoral students in Educational Linguistics across the university. We invite young researchers at all levels of their PhD thesis to engage in an exchange on theories and methods of researching language in the educational sphere. In particular this course will zoom in on decisive elements of the research process: the nature of research questions, the answers we are striving for and what can count as evidence. Further suggestions from participants are welcome. In the course of the semester we expect one to two guest speakers.
