    Presented at the: Second Language Research Forum (SLRF)
    Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. in Ballroom C
    Description:
    A gap has long existed between SLA researchers and teachers in the trenches. This workshop demonstrates how the two groups can work together to improve research while implementing lessons learned from research which often contradict teaching methods. Practitioners will learn how to better understand and implement current research findings while learning how to contribute to the field themselves by raising the bar from anecdotal to research-based evidence by conducting their own SLA studies. Researchers and practitioners will learn how to establish relationships between universities and schools that can enhance and further the types of research currently taking place, bringing practitioners into the SLA discussion.
    Session Objectives:
    1) I can locate high quality, research-based articles that help me help my students learn languages with more success.
    2) I can turn my questions about teaching and learning world languages into tools for inquiry.
    3) I can overcome potential barriers to my research with help from colleagues, online resources, and partnerships with other institutions (including university researchers).
    4) I can use technology to share what I learn from my research in ways that help students, parents, colleagues, administrators, & legislators.
