NanKyu JALT:

Creating and Implementing Interactive Tasks Based on Self-Determination Theory--For young learners and the young at heart!

Date: Saturday, September 15th, 2018 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:45 PM

Speaker: David Ockert (Toyo University)

JALT NanKyu and the PIGATE grassroots teacher development group have invited David Ockert of Toyo University (Tokyo) to make a guest presentation in Kumamoto. David's teaching interests are in critical thinking, reading comprehension, and academic writing. He does research on the influence of technology on affective variables (motivation, confidence, anxiety, and willingness to communicate). For this presentation, he will focus on self-determination theory-based EFL motives, as they are interrelated. David also enjoys creative lesson planning for communicative purposes, using a task-based language teaching (TBLT) approach via the three pillars of self-determination theory: competence (mastery), relatedness, and autonomy. He will show how all three can be easily incorporated into any level of pedagogy, with a focus on the junior high school level in Japan. If you would like to attend this presentation, or are interested in joining PIGATE, please fill out the information collection form.
