‘Improving Teaching through Action Research; Perceptions, Practices and Problems (3Ps): Voices from Secondary Level Teachers in an EFL Context’ by Janak Singh Negi

Abstract

Teachers are the major key to bring out improvement in the field of teaching and learning. Action research is the major tool to help teachers overcome their problems in the classroom and enhance their instructional practices. But, are the EFL teachers in the remote and resource poor areas conducting an action research? This study represents the voices from one of the similar areas of the Far Western part of Nepal and attempts to examine the perceptions, practices and problems (3ps) of conducting action research. The result showed that although teachers were familiar with the basic concept of the action research, they rarely practiced it due to various reasons.

Keywords: Action Research, Reflective Practice, EFL, Professional Development.
