Abstract

This report draws on four teacher-researchers’ year long collaboration in planning, teaching and researching a business letter writing programme at the tertiary level. The authors will examine the design of the programme, highlight insights leading to the revamping of the programme and discuss issues related to the integration of teaching and research dimensions. The report focuses on two major themes of the project. After a brief description of the background of the research, we will discuss the purpose and focus of, and rationale behind the writing programme. Two essential aspects of the action research will also be addressed. One aspect is the research process itself, using the essential elements of planning, experimenting, evaluating, reflecting and recycling to improve the writing programme. Outcomes and insights of the research are also discussed. We will reflect on the teaching of writing and discuss what we learned about teacher research and other key issues uncovered by the research.
