Project work can be a powerful means of empowering students to take their learning beyond the borders of the classroom, to examine the world outside, to seek answers, and suggest change. This workshop will examine the process of engaging students in semester-long projects from equipping them with the necessary research tools to having them deliver the end-product via various media in the final class. It will also describe students’ reactions to the overall learning experience.
This conference provides an excellent opportunity to share ideas with a diverse group of colleagues. Each year both JALT and Non JALT members have the opportunity to present at the event. For more information on the conference and the call for papers, please go to http://nearconference.weebly.com/
