LD Forum Title(LDフォーラムタイトル)

Reflecting on challenges and achievements in diverse learning environments


LD Forums Abstract(LDフォーラム要旨)

This forum reflects on learning and teaching challenges and achievements in different learning environments (e.g., elementary, secondary, tertiary, language school, and adult learning). Through sharing narratives and practitioner research, we explore educational puzzles and practices in learner development. The forum examines topics such as environmental dynamics and relationships, emotional aspects of learning, and innovative planning and assessments practices. Presenters and participants will be also invited to share their thoughts in the LD SIG’s newsletter.

本フォーラムでは、様々な学習環境(小学校、中学校、高等学校、語学学校、成人学習など)における学習と教育の課題と成果を振り返ります。ナラティブや実践研究を共有することで、学習者ディベロップメントにおける教育のパズルや実践を探求します。フォーラムでは、環境のダイナミクスや関係性、学習の感情的側面、革新的な計画や評価の実践などのテーマを扱います。発表者や参加者は、フォーラム後、LD SIGのニューズレターでも考えを共有することができます。
