Featured Speaker Workshop: Ecology of Effort: Motivation and Investment Workshop

CUE is sponsoring Featured Speaker Chris Casanave. Come hear this insightful and dynamic speaker share some wisdom from the field.

This workshop will explore the notion of ecology of effort and its
connection to more traditional concepts of motivation. Ecology of effort
means the many interrelated contextual and emotional influences on a
person's desire to invest effort (or not, as the case may be) in
studying a second language throughout one's career, or for that matter
in doing anything that is difficult and challenging in our lives as
students and teachers.

***Sunday 10/27 3:50-5:20 Room: Kikusui

Featured Speaker Presentation: Thinking, conducting, and writing up research

This presentation will explore the research process and the concept of
distancing. This refers to how a final research report has gone through
many steps that have distanced it from the actual experiences we are
trying to study, which should cause authors to reflect on the truth of
their assertions. The focus will be on graduate level and professional
academic writing experiences, by both L2 and L1 users of English.

***Saturday 10/26 1:20-2:20 Room: Kikusui

CUE / TED Forum: Voyages in lifelong learning: Stories of impact

For the third consecutive year, the College and University Educators (CUE)
and Teacher Education and Development (TED) SIGs are joining together

stories. Using a rotating format for multiple short simultaneous
presentations to small groups, this forum will showcase a variety of
unique professional stories, followed by the insight of CUE Featured
Speaker, Christine Pearson Casanave, who will act as a discussant.

***Saturday 11:00-12:30 Room: 301


Join us to share your ideas about what CUE should do in the coming years.

Penny Ur Talk -- Getting them to talk in English

Co-sponsored with Yokohama JALT

    • October 31 (Thursday)
    • Time: 7pm-8.30pm, followed by dinner
    • Location: Kanagawa Kokaido Hall – 2 mins walk from JR HigashiKanagawa (Yokohama/Keihin Tohoku line) and Nakakido (Keikyu) – map

It is always a problem getting students to talk informally in English:
however interesting the topic we suggest, they often prefer to keep
silent, or to express themselves their mother tongue. This talk suggests
a few guidelines that will go some way towards solving these problems,
illustrated by some practical activities intended for students at
various levels of proficiency.
