This paper is a case study of the major Japanese language education using ‘SRN(Self Reflection Note)’. Specifically, [SRN] was applied to [Business Japanese 1], and the results of the operation and the learning effect were discussed. And suggested that ‘SRN’ could be one of effective teaching and learning methods in foreign language education.
As a result of the lesson using ‘SRN’, the learner's satisfaction was improved by self-directed learning ability improvement through self-reflection notebooks, self learning diagnosis, and learning control through regular review. 61% of the students expressed satisfaction with the ‘SRN’ class, and only 13% were dissatisfied.
Also, with the ‘SRN’ lesson, 86% were positive and 14% were negative. In the case of the instructor, the ‘SRN’ enabled the personalized instruction with level-specific learning guidance, and the interaction with the learner was active. Also, in the Business Japanese Proficiency Test (BJT), “SRN” is considered to be more helpful than traditional teacher- centered class. The performance of ‘SRN’ will be applicable to other Japanese major courses and Japanese language education in the future. Developing the ‘SRN’ questionnaire, establishing reasonable evaluation criteria, and motivating passive participant students about 15% remain as challenges.
Finally, in accordance with the transition from the pedagogy to the learner centered on the achievements of this research, we will focus on ‘Collaborative learning’, ‘Flipped Learning’, ‘Blended Learning’(Eg, PBL (Project-Based Learning), (Problem-Based Learning)).
I hope that this paper will contribute to the development of Convergence class models.
