Extensive Reading Conference: Empowering Autonomous Learners

Foreign language classes serve increasingly diverse groups of students, in terms of interests, learning styles, native languages, learning aptitudes, etc. How can we satisfy their individual needs? In addition, how can we encourage them to become lifelong learners after graduation? This symposium addresses these issues by offering the Extensive Reading (ER) model as a robust and flexible method for encouraging autonomous learning.

Keynote Speakers:

“Integrating ER Models into Curricular Programs”

“How to Assess and Grade ER Programs”
