Japanese and Other Language Teaching & Learning General Practice-Oriented Long Workshop
Language Learning Post-COVID: Time to Finally Start Trusting Learners?
The global COVID pandemic forced sudden, massive changes to how students were being taught. Post COVID, do we just pick up from where we left off? Or do we use this unprecedented event to reflect upon what really works, what doesn’t, and strive for true effectiveness—trusting how learners actually learn languages, and letting them do so—rather than repeating the failed orthodoxies of the past?
