The second project year was a year of building on the exciting progress made in 2016 and of producing the first collaborative outputs from participants’ engagement with ARC.
Action research projects started during the ARC workshop in November 2016. During the year colleagues across the ECML member states collaborated on their projects and there were intensive contacts in spring and summer. The visible result was the publication of the project abstracts on our website. Publication on the Padlet Wall continued and longer versions of the project descriptions are available there for Network partners.
Currently, we are planning the Network meeting in May 2018 and will be working together on a Moodle platform provided by the ECML.
At the same time, the project team is working on the project tools to facilitate discussions around action research to be presented, trialled and discussed at the Network meeting.
During the year there were several opportunities to disseminate the project and, at the same time, learn from ensuing discussions. ARC was presented at national workshops for language professionals in Switzerland, Iceland, Germany, Romania and Austria. There were also international conference presentations at the C.A.R.N. conference in Crete in October and the EAPRIL conference in Finland in November.
The project team is looking forward to interesting developments in 2018!
