Learner Development College & University Education Poster Session

Out-of-Class Learning at a Japanese University Self-Access Center

Sat, Nov 13, 12:45-13:45 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 21

This poster session outlines the first part of a longitudinal qualitative study that investigates university students’ participation in a self-access center by focusing on their perceptions, learning experiences, and attitudes. The research is concerned with whether students will become more willing to seek out future opportunities to use English beyond the classroom in non-formal settings after having been strongly encouraged to do so as part of their English course.
