Cancelled Fostering Language Learner Autonomy in the New Normal

Sun, Nov 14, 11:25-11:50 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 16

Especially in the new normal, we can play a vital role in fostering language learner autonomy by coaching our learners to set goals, reflect on their progress, share with peers, and take advantage of available technology. I will describe a reading course in which self-directed reading logs and individual vocabulary lists were used to promote learner autonomy, and present the results of an open-ended questionnaire designed to gauge student reactions.
