LASIG’s PCE will feature 8 poster presentations:
Micòl Beseghi: Using translation for learner autonomy
I will show how using authentic translation tasks in the foreign language classroom can be beneficial in terms of harnessing learners’ autonomous behaviour and creating a collaborative learning environment as well as a community of practice.
Diana Brown: Challenging teaching traditions and learning expectations: Open content in a competence-based curriculum for EFL student teachers
Open content in project-based learning gives learners opportunities to explore their individual interests and language competences. See how student teachers addressed challenges and developed strategies along the way.
Anja Burkert: Between worlds: leaners’ perceptions of themselves as learners and teachers
My poster shows the findings of a small-scale qualitative study exploring my students‘ perceptions of themselves both as learners (in my classroom) and student teachers in their school internships
Adelina Ruiz Guerrero: Transformational advising and Ignatian style accompanying to support autonomy
This poster presents the convergence points between two approaches that foster autonomy in learners, where the main focus is in supporting the development of a person’s discerning abilities.
Leena Karlsson: Memories maketh … the autonomous learner?
In my poster presentation I describe a peer-to-peer group, Down Memory Lane, and discuss the rationale for a memory-work group (e.g. Frigga Haug) as an offering on an autonomous English course for university students. I then share episodes of reminiscing from a recent group and the prompts used.
Aishowarza Manik: Consolidating vocabulary of students of Chinese in an autonomous learning context outside the classroom
This poster reports on a qualitative study revealing the impact of an autonomous learning context on the enhancement of learners’ existing knowledge of Chinese language vocabulary beyond the classroom.
Bob Morrison: Making the grade
This poster outlines how three undergraduates at different universities in China successfully met the English requirements for postgraduate studies in the UK without university support.
Gamze Sayram: Autonomous Language Learning Experiences Beyond the University Classroom
This project explores the interconnected relationship between out-of-class learning and in-class learning (Benson, 2007; Benson & Reinders, 2011) and the role of out-of-class learning on autonomous language learning development.
