INDEPENDENTLY ONLINE

Posted on behalf of the IATEFL Computer SIG and the Learner Independence SIG.

We would like to invite you to a joint event organised by the Computer SIG and the Learner Independence SIG.

INDEPENDENTLY ONLINE

Venue: Thames Valley University, Reading Campus

Date: February 26th, 2005

Do the same principles of learner autonomy in the classroom apply in the online learning situation? The Conference will aim to explore the principles and practices which need to be considered in an online learning environment where the aim is to support and foster greater learner autonomy. It will consider how different factors affect the design and functionality of materials for such an environment.

Keynote speakers:
Barbara Sinclair
Klaus Schwienhorst
Gavin Dudeney & Nicky Hockly

There will also be a session on exchange of ideas where each individual will have a 10-minute slot to present a practical activity, based on the principles of promoting autonomy in an online learning environment. If you would like to present your ideas send a proposal, outlining the idea in brief by January 20th to j.c.mccormack@reading.ac.uk or gavin.dudeney@theconsultants-e.com.
