Okinawa JALT:

Present Communities of Imagination (PCOIz)

Date: Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Tim Murphy

Using group dynamics as an umbrella term for overlapping literatures on community, cooperative, and collaborative practices, Tim Murphy will introduce the concept of PCOIz, which might help teachers to better conceptualize their classes and the time-frame influences on their students. Mr Murphy will also present several mixed method studies done in Japan which indicate that PCOIz, when well developed, can nurture the aspirations, resilience, learning strategies, beliefs, motivations, and possible selves of its members through critical dialogue and collaboration.

Organization: Okinawa Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Okinawa JALT)
