The Japan Association for Self-Access Learning (JASAL) is devoted to promoting self-access language learning in Japan. In this open discussion forum, participants will have opportunities to share, learn, and ask questions about setting up/running a self-access center, curriculum integration, student involvement/training, learning advising. This forum is uniquely structured so that participants with various levels of experience in this field can generate the topics and take part in the discussions in an equally active manner. As we see great increase in institutions implementing self-access learning, we are excited to see many new ideas being shared and explored together.
