Matsuyama Chapter

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 19 February 2017 - 2:15pm - 4:20pm
Lee Arnold (Seigakuin University)

While many Japanese university learners in English courses are sometimes still cycled through regimes emphasizing precision though a variety of presentation and written compositional tasks, the value of creativity as a source of learner motivation for such tasks still appears to be underappreciated.

Through the presenter's own research, including samples of learner work, this presentation and workshop will demonstrate the potential of latent creativity as a owerful source for learner stake in presentation and writing.
