About this talk
My presentation begins with a discussion of a knowledge framework which involves four main stages: knowledge creation, knowledge translation, knowledge sharing and knowledge application. Key processes within each stage will then be elaborated on in relation to my own work in the area of language education research. I then provide practical suggestions on how our research can be made more meaningful, accessible and impactful to students, teachers, academic community and other important stakeholders.
