JASAL 2010 Forum at JALT 2010 Nagoya
Title: Self-Access Learning: Thinking Outside the Box
To be involved in self-access language learning means not only thinking but being outside the box! This forum includes an extended session for six posters followed by two oral presentations in which presenters from different institutions talk about the creative approaches they have taken in developing and researching self-access learning environments and facilities. The poster and oral presentations were followed by Q&A and a short discussion.
For a full account of the Forum, please see Caleb Foale’s report, written for the AILA Research Network on Learner Autonomy.
