JASAL2020 National Online Conference

As announced by email and through our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, JASAL2020 will be an online conference. The deadline for presentation proposals has been extended to Sept. 14th.

JASAL Online Student Forum 2020

The Online Student Forum was held on Saturday, July 4, 2020 on Zoom. Twenty-two student participants from seven universities met to share online activities and issues, and they enjoyed coming up with new ideas. There were also 22 teacher participants, who had their own discussion time and observed part of the students’ discussion. See the event page for some photos.
