Authoring Autonomy: Experience, Resistance and Resolution

Date: Sunday, June 11th, 2006 Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Tim Murphey, Keiko Sakui, Neil Cowie, Stacey Vye, Eric Skier, and Martha Robertson

This is the 3rd annual collaborative event co-sponsored by Osaka JALT Chapter and the Learner Development SIG. This day-long event will focus on exploring teachers' and learners' learning experiences, identifying critical issues and moments in our development of learner and teacher autonomy, and learning from them.

There will be four workshops:
The Identity Construction and Performance Weight of Intent Participation, led by Tim Murphey of Dokkyo University
Student Resistance: How Can We Deal With It and Is It a Reflection of Students' (Lack of) Motivation?, led by Keiko Sakui of Kobe Shoin Women's University
Resolution: Reasons Why Experienced EFL Teachers Stay Positive and Motivated, led by Neil Cowie of Okayama University
Exploring Critical Moments of Change in Our Learning and Teaching Lives, led by Stacey Vye of Meikai University

In addition, Eric Skier of Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Science will discuss developments of AYA2, the second Anthology of Japan-based action research projects examining student and teacher development, produced by the JALT Learner Development SIG. Finally, Martha Robertson of Aichi University will lead a reflective activity to wrap up and tie together the day's workshops and discussions.
