Okayama JALT:

Self-Access Language Learning as Classroom-Based Instruction

Date: Saturday, May 22nd, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Garold Murray

This workshop focuses on how self-access language learning might be integrated into the curriculum in high schools and universities. In the first part of the workshop, the presenter outlines a course in self-directed language learning that he developed and delivered to first-year Japanese university students. He then discusses what he learned from the process and a 3-year research project exploring the learners’ experiences. In the second part, participants have an opportunity to examine the pedagogical model and explore how they might adapt it to their teaching/learning situation.
