JASAL Forum at JALT2022

If you are attending the JALT conference in Fukuoka this year (or from the comfort of your home) please join us for the online JASAL Forum this year!

Sunday, November 13, 10:45-12:15 (online)

Motivation in self-access learning: listening to student experiences

Staying motivated is one of the most difficult aspects of learning a language beyond the classroom. In this year’s JASAL forum, we will explore issues related to learner motivation through two presentations and discussion. Gerardine McCrohan will share results of a study of regular self-access centre users, while Etsuko Yamada will report on a project which investigated the impact on students of hearing international students’ stories of their language learning experiences. The presentations will be followed by discussion.

The presentations will be prerecorded videos, but we have plenty of time for fruitful discussion and networking too! If you couldn’t make it for JASAL2022 or are already missing your JASAL fix, come and join us!

(Contrary to the abstract in the JALT Program, both presentations will be in English.)
