Learner Development College & University Education Research-Oriented Short Presentation
Belonging and Becoming in a Learner-Led Community of Practice
Mon, Nov 15, 13:25-13:50 Asia/Tokyo
This presentation outlines a study investigating members’ identification with a student-led learning community within a university self-access centre. Interview data from members suggested members’ identities within the community were connected to the comfortable learning environment, an international, imagined English community, and the negotiation of certain sociocultural norms. This presentation will also address practical implications based on the findings of this study for SAC staff aiming to cultivate and support student-led learning communities.
