An Investigation of a Timetabled Self-Access Session in a General English Programme.
Davies, Sheena; And Others
Edinburgh Working Papers in Linguistics, n2 p37-50 1991
This paper reports an investigation of a timetabled session in a self-access center with a General English program. Five classes were observed for three weeks to determine how the available time was actually used. Learners' opinions on the purpose and usefulness of the session were also sought. The most frequently observed activity overall was reading, but learner activities varied according to level of class. Although learners' opinions of the timetabled session seem favorable, questions are raised about the resourcing, lay-out and accessibility of the center and about the issues of learner-training and teacher-training for self access.
