The role of written dialogue in advising (Talk T1)
Presenters: Jo Mynard and Katherine Thornton, Kanda University of International Studies, Japan
In this session, the presenters explore the nature of the written dialogue between learning advisors and language learners and discuss the importance of this kind of dialogue for the development of learner autonomy. By analysing comments written by learning advisors on students’ work in two different self-directed learning modules over a one-semester period, the researchers identify patterns of written advising which they will share during the presentation. The different approaches that advisors take and specific strategies that they use in written format to interact with students will be presented and discussed.
