It has been an incredibly fruitful and busy period for JASAL. We had our national conference JASAL2021 (held online) in October. This was a truly wonderful day of networking and presentations, with the conference theme Learning Space Design and Usage in Self-Access Language Learning.
Then, we held a Forum at JALT2021 (also online) on November 13, discussing Serendipities in Self-Access Learning: Positives from the Pandemic, which was a great opportunity to introduce some people to our field and our community.
Finally, we held our 5th JASAL Student Conference, on the afternoon of Saturday, November 27, also online.
Thank you to everyone who has made these events such a success. We are still buzzing from all the stimulation and fresh ideas!
