Symposium in Japan this month:
Directions in self-access learning at Kanda University of International Studies, Chiba, Japan
Saturday October 19th, 2013
Increasing numbers of institutions in Japan are investing in self-access facilities. Self-access learning plays an important role in promoting language learner autonomy by providing opportunities and support for students to take charge of their language learning. A range of presentations will examine current practices in self-access and the role it plays in language education.
Themes explored at this event will include:
- setting up a self-access facility
- learner involvement in self-access
- advising practices and training
- resources and materials
This event is aimed at administrators, language educators and students who are either currently working in the field of self-access learning or are planning to establish or work in a self-access centre in the future. Plenary sessions and SALC tours will be available in both Japanese and English. Other sessions will be held in English with some Japanese support.
