Abstract or Summary

This presentation to the Matsue Centre For Foreign Language Learning, Shimane University, reviewed how foreign language learning has been influenced by constructivist approaches to learning and teaching. It demonstrated how these approaches, specifically placing the learner at the centre of the teaching and learning experience, required tutors to review their existing teaching strategies, techniques, methods and beliefs. It then explored the development of an online design framework, based on the award of badges on the acquisition of skills that increased learner autonomy. It then demonstrated with a hands-on review how the design integrated a self-reflective framework and micro-credential / badge ecosystem in a learner centric English language course.
