Date: Saturday, October 27th, 2012 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: David Callaghan, Fred Carruth, Jim George, Mark Brierley, Cheryl Kirchhoff

David Callaghan will revisit his JALT Conference (Shinshu JALT's featured speaker in Hamamatsu) presentation: Projects promoting agency in unmotivated students.

Inspired by theories of autonomy, and Meddings and Thornbury`s (2009) dogme method, I have attempted to encourage students to take control of their own learning and use previously learned knowledge in ways that are more engaging and relevant. This has led to more student-led 'project' based learning than textbook activities. This presentation will be an account of this attempt: examples of successes, and food for thought for the future.

Chapter officers Mark, Fred, Jim & Cheryl will also share their notes on the good, the bad & the ugly from JALT 2012. Excellent chance to catch up vicariously on the wealth of presenatations and furious networkings that is our annual conference.
