Short paper (30 minutes)
Curtis Edlin (Kanda University of International Studies)
This presentation focuses on teacher and researcher reflections on the effects and outcomes of an elective course taught by learning advisors at an international university in Japan. The course focus is on learner development and uses students’ self-selected massive open online course (MOOC) experiences as vehicles for reflection. While outcomes and student feedback on the course is almost entirely positive, ways in which they developed and their solutions to common problems were highly variable. This presentation pays special attention to this variation and individual difference, and to resultant implications regarding course development and teaching practices.
